Jack Skellington Halloween Jar

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**
