After I made these cute Halloween jars a few weeks ago (using this tutorial on this Not So Idle Hands post), I finished up a jar of pickles leaving me with another empty jar that I could make another one with. But, I had to figure out what I wanted for it to be. Then, I had the great idea to make a Jack Skellington one! I am using flameless tealights that I got at the Dollar Tree (3 for $1), but that's just because I didn't have any string lights handy that I could use in them (they look much better with the string lights). These really don't take too long to make. I actually made this Jack Skellington while I was waiting for the Mod Podge to dry on my dishwasher sign project. ***Update: I also made a template for his face, which I have included below***
I think his eyes need better placement, but it was too late since the glue was drying and I would have ripped the paper. I think he still looks good, though! With all of the different facial expressions that Jack makes, I may have to make more of these for next Halloween. Guess I'll have to start eating more pickles!
**Update: Here is a template (it's a .JPEG file) I made for his face in case you'd like to make your own**
