Jack O' Lantern Mason Jar

Happy Halloween everyone!!! In the spirit of one of my absolute favorite holidays, I decided to do a DIY project, using mason jars. I love mason jars, because they are so versatile!!
For this project, you will need:
painter's tape (or regular paper tape)
mason jar
a pen (do not use a Sharpie like I did)
a can of orange spray paint
tealight candles

This is a pretty inexpensive project. I had a lot of it lying around at home, I found an extra mason jar at the dollar store, and I bought the spray paint at Walmart for a few bucks.

For the eyes, I put two pieces of tape together that that I could draw them at the size I wanted.
After I cut the shapes out, I made sure to press down firmly to make sure no paint would get under the tape.
I put a bag inside the jar so that I could spray the top, without getting paint inside the jar. The sharpie on the cut-outs starting oozing down my jar. Instead of being patient and letting the jar dry first, I panicked and sprayed another coat haha which I do not recommend. Let the paint dry first!
I decided to do another one, this one being more scary oOoOoO!
Hours later, after the paint was completely dry, I peeled off the tape and this was the final product!
They look so cool with the lights off! Even though my paint dripped down from spraying the can too close, the dripping affect actually makes it look pretty cool and unique!
These Jack 'o Lantern mason jars look great with or without the candles :)
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!!!
