Spooky Jar Hack


  • Empty Bonne Maman jars
  • Spray Paint
  • Halloween Artwork
  • Scissors
  • Flame-free Light Source


Spray a thin layer of paint on the outside of the jars, in the color of your choosing. The thinner the layer, the more translucent the jar. The color used in the example is purple.

Once dry, drop a light source (LED candle or battery-operated string lights) inside one of the jars to see how the light comes through. If you think that one layer of paint is not enough, add another.

Apply your artwork to the outside of the jar. Draw or paint, glue craft paper shapes, or print your design onto transparent sticker paper and trim before affixing.

Re-insert the light to illuminate the Halloween scene!
