Good Clean Halloween Fun!

Have I ever mentioned how much I love mason jars?

Well, my family and friends know how much I love mason jars, at least that's what I am assuming since they give them to me for crafting purposes. They save other glass jars for me as well, which is awesome because: a) there are TONS of uses for glass jars and b) they are free and everybody should know how much I love FREE!

So while I was baby-sitting, my nieces used the last of the jelly to make their school lunches, I quickly cleaned out the jar and took it home. (They know their Aunt Bethany is a little weird, but they love me anyway.) 



Amazing Boyfriend eyed my jelly jar with the deepest suspicion when I brought it home and wanted to know why I was bringing yet another glass jar home. So I had to let ABF in on my idea, especially since he won't let me use his precious drill that I would need for this project. Sadly, I found out that he didn't have a drill bit big enough for what I was planning on doing. 


But my Dad did! 


So I painted my jar with glass paint and baked it, so that it was permanent. I painted the lid as well. Then I took everything over to my Dad's house, and when we were finished, this is what it looked like. 




Doesn't that face make you giggle?


But wait, this little guy has another side to him... literally. 



Yeah, he's a little two faced, but I love him anyway. 




Just a little silly, Halloween fun to add to our bathroom... which is kinda scary because I share it with 3 guys...Eek!

    Both of my girls are out of that trick or treat age, but they still love that I decorate their bathroom. I will have to make one of these for them.
