Since I don’t have little kids in the house I can decorate a little bit more ghoulish for Halloween. I’ve seen various spins on pictures in jars and scary altered portraits and I thought I’d combine the two ideas and make some Halloween Scary Jars.
To start with, I needed to find some vintage portraits and the best source for all vintage graphics is The Graphics Fairy. All three pictures I used for this project are from The Graphics Fairy.
Print out the pictures so that they’ll fit in your jars.
To make them extra spooky, paint the eyes with glow-in-the-dark paint. I used glow-in-the-dark Mod Podge. You can use a tiny paint brush or even a toothpick to cover the small area.
Tape your pictures to the inside of the jar and add some spooky cloth available at the dollar store. Add a few dead branches and other details to creep yourself out even more.
My camera and photography skills aren’t good enough to capture a night shot with the eyes glowing but they glow green and trust me – it’s down right spooky. These photos are altered with a photo effect green tint.
My family doesn't like this Halloween décor. They say it’s too creepy.
I love it. They eyes seem to follow you around. Spooktacular!
Thanks for visiting!
