How to Make Pumpkin Mason Jars

1. First, paint the mason jars.

You may need to do 2-3 coats depending on the type of paint you are using. Paint until it does not look transparent.

You can also do a base coat in white which will cut down on the number of colored coats you’ll need.

Optional: Once the coats of orange are finished, you can brush on a coat of orange glitter paint.

2. Once all the base coats of paint are dry, the final touch is adding your Jack-o-lantern faces.

Make them as silly or as traditional as you’d like!

3. The final step is to add a coat of mod podge on top to seal the paint.
