Halloween: Spooky "Laboratory" Display

Painted and decorated jars create a cute Halloween display.

Lay down newspapers and spray recycled glass jars in a well ventilated area. Spray paint clean jars using an assortment of paints. To create the dripping black look, spray heavily and allow to run down the sides of the jar. Spray orange, white, and gold for a candy corn look. Have fun, you can't "mess" these up.


Create labels you have hand written or printed on your computer (use a spooky font) to assorted layers of scrapbooking papers. I used terms I thought would be found in a mad-scientist's laboratory: eye of newt, witches toenails, bat wings, etc.

Fill jars with candy (witches toe nails are candy corn!) Display in a group for a cute Halloween decoration.
