Halloween Treat Jar

I’m not sure if I’m obsessed with all things fall because I really do love the season or if I’m so over the heat in the Phoenix area. Either way I look at it, I’m excited to break out all the fun decor for autumn and get crafting some new items. Today I’m excited to share my newest project: a sweet Halloween Treat Jar using Plaid’s new Martha Stewart Glass Paint!

Keep reading to get all the details to make your own!

Can I just start first by saying how impressed I was with the line of glass paints from Plaid and Martha Stewart? I was lucky enough to receive a box full of goodies that included a good selection of paints, stencils, screen prints, and a whole smattering of tools to help make the painting process a breeze. Love.

But let’s get to what you’re here for; the tutorial!

1. Make sure your surface is cleaned with alcohol to ensure the best application. Place silk screen on the glass and press it firmly into place.

2. Place a thin line of the Pacific Iris across the top of the screen.

3. Using the squeegee, drag the paint across the silk screen.

4. Cover the entire stencil with paint and remove the silk screen immediately. Let the paint dry for at least 30 minutes before starting the next screen. Repeat the process until the lace wraps around the jar.

1. Repeat the same process as above to add the black lace silk screen using the Black Nickle paint. Do you see the small spot where the purple and black connect that got a little messed up? Now it’s time to fix that!

2. With the Opaque Sterling, I created a small circle over the area in question. This will be the body of our spider.

3. Use the glass paint brush to drag some of the paint that created the circle to fill it completely in.

4. Apply four curved lines on each side of the circle to create the legs of the spider. Allow to dry fully. I let mine dry overnight.

To add a little more pizzazz, I added the Fine Glitter Sterling paint. Add the glitter paint directly on top of the dried circle. When the glitter layer was tacky, I added two small dots of the Black Nickel paint for eyes.

Once the paint is dry, your spooky Halloween Treat Jar is ready to go! Load it up with your favorite sweet treats, but make sure to share the fun!
