Halloween is so very close and I have one more idea for decorations. This comes to us from the people over at Martha Stewart. These painted jars look so cute filled with candy, but I think they would be absolutely adorable with little tealight candles lit up inside.
So grab the glass jars out of the recycling bin.
Spray inside the jars. Don’t be like me and try to cover everything evenly on the first go. A few very thin coats will do the trick. The glass is so slick that if you get too much paint in there, it just runs down to the bottom. And yes, I was wearing a trash bag over my clothes. I am a size 13 gallon in case you are wondering.
(I also wasn’t taking the pictures while painting so the focus in the picture is not where I would have put it.)
Just make sure to get the inside surface cover as best you can with 3-5 coats, letting each coat dry about 20-30 minutes. Then let to jars dry overnight, especially if the paint has pooled at the bottom.
You can see that the jars are kinda streaky because I didn’t do thin coats. The one on the left is really bad, but I think it will actually look more interesting when lit up.
