After I made these cute Halloween jars (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 drew out Jack's face & cut the pieces out of black card stock. Then, I Mod Podged them onto the jar, right on top of the white tissue paper. Here is the template for his face:
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).
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!
