Upcycled Dollar Tree DIY Halloween Glass Jars

Upcycled Dollar Tree DIY Halloween Glass Jars

Happy Monday evening, everyone!

A few days ago while at Dollar Tree unsuccessfully looking for more potholders, in the same aisle I found these small jars.

I’d say they are about one- or two-cup size.  They are similar to old-fashioned candy jars that can either stand up straight or tilted.

I can never walk out of there empty-handed, so I bought them.

When I got home, I thought about adding the same transfers that I used on the enamel cups I made for my kids but changed my mind.

Instead I went with the same ones I used on the Halloween Treat Bags I made earlier this month.

I keep one set of transfers in new condition for photos.

I didn’t need to “fuzz” them before since they were being used on fabric.

This time I fuzzed them several times since they were going on glass.  I have a really fuzzy dish towel I use that I believe also came from Dollar Tree.

Here’s how I positioned them on the jars.

And here’s how they turned out.

The lids were done with the remaining two transfers that weren’t used on the jars..

Super cute, right?

And super easy!

The nice thing is, since I used chalk paste instead of ink, after Halloween I can just wet the paste, wipe it off, and put new designs on them.

Of course, if you want to make the designs permanent, just spray with a clear sealer.

There are only a few supplies needed to make these jars: *links are to my Chalk Couture shop.

You can do this project without purchasing full-size chalk pastes, which I know is a little pricey for some folks.

Let me know if you want the transfer with 3 sample-size packets of chalk paste that will include enough paste to make the two jars as shown for $18 (tax and and shipping included).

I’ll send you an invoice through Paypal to purchase.

If you would rather have full-size chalk pastes, just click on the links above.

    This is a cute idea and so easy and you can change it with the seasons instead of having a bunch of jars for each season. Very space saving idea.

  2. I love this!
