diy: spider topped halloween candy jars


I have a thing about jars topped with tiny trinkets.


For holidays.
For the everyday.
They're just fun.


Of course I had to try a Halloween version.


And just my luck JoAnn  put out a challenge for bloggers with the theme spooky spaces...spiders are totally spooky, right?? :)


So I shopped my embarassingly huge so please don't call Hoarders reasonably sized collection of saved jars and picked a good mix of sizes.


Everything else...plastic spiders, craft paint, glue...can be found at JoAnn.


Candy is from the grocery store. ;)


Making these is pretty straightforward...and I've explained before...but as a quick refresher...


Prime.
Paint.
Glue.

So easy!


When I've made these before I've always used spray paint.


This time I used Martha's craft paint because of all the different super cool finishes.


I think the glitter and metallic are perfect for Halloween!



Now if you're ready to get your Halloween craft on too, search the hashtag #spookyspaces and find more ideas other bloggers have come up with. 



And of course the JoAnn Creativity Made Simple page has lots of ideas too!



Plus here's a 50% coupon to help you shop for any supplies you might need to create your own spooky spaces!
