14 Halloween Mason Jar Crafts

By  | 

I love to craft with Mason jars because they are easy to find and easy to work with. This great Halloween Mason Jar Crafts round-up is full of inventive constructs for a terrific boy’s Halloween themed party!

They would be awesome as decorations, you can use them on a party dessert table and you might even want to use some of the ideas as make-and-take party favors.

You’ll see suggestions for morphing Mason jars into pumpkins, themed beverage containers, mason jar lanterns, a candy corn scarecrow, mummies, witches, ghosts—ooh, scary good ideas!

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year: tricks, treats, costumes, and crafts!

Crafting can be a fun way to celebrate the holiday and the whole family can get involved in making spooky creatures, marvelous monsters, and taste-testing the candy.
