I was so excited to see the new Halloween sizzix zombie die cut! They also have some other ghoulish monsters available. I decided to use the sizzix zombie and turn into a Halloween mason jar. I enjoy making holiday themed mason jars and I can’t wait make many home this Halloween season. One of the many reasons I enjoy using paper craft during the holiday season is because it can be easily stored or made again if it gets damaged. I do have two little kiddos and enjoy making crafts with me and paper crafts is something everyone can enjoy.
The first thing I did one I got my zombie sizzix die cut from Tim Holtz I believe, was take everything out from the package. It might seemed a little over whelming at first but it does come with basic instructions.
I used my big shot to do all the die cuts. I also used Tim Holtz line of kraft paper to do all the pieces.
Once everything was cut I looked over the instructions and started to glue everything together. I used pop up glue dots to make thing more dimensional.
I then needed something to help my zombie head stay standing. I took a piece of paper and folded it in half followed by also folding the ends. I then glue the ends together and to the zombie head.
Now I needed to do the base of the mason jar. I took paper and red felt with my hot glue gun and glued it to the base.
Ta-Da! You are now done!! You have the perfect zombie head to display with all you wonderful Halloween decor! Its time to make your very own sizzix zombie mason jar this Halloween.
Its the holiday to be spooky with Jack Skellington mason jar. I just love the movie and make Halloween seem that much closer. Every year I try to do different Halloween mason jar crafts and this year my home theme is Nightmare before Christmas. The story of nightmare before Christmas has long be debated if its a Christmas story or a Halloween one. I just believe it perfect for both holidays.
The first thing I did was use my cameo to cut out Jack’s face. I use a general silhouette I found online. Afterwards I remove the cut outs.
I then attached the vinyl to the mason and spray painted it white.
Once it was all dried I went a head and removed the vinyl.
I went shopping at my craft store and purchased a ribbon to match my Jack. I hot glued it on and now I have my Jack Skellington Mason Jar. Its super easy and looks great, however he does look a little lonely. I might have just have to do a Sally to match. I will be having more Nightmare before Christmas inspired craft coming a long the way so stay tune. I do love Halloween!!
Ghost are one of the frightful things during Halloween. I decided to make my own tortured soul ghost and place him in my mason jar for safe keeping. I used little things around the house. I sometimes get very surprise what you can come up with when you are in need of it. I love making Halloween mason jar every year. I always want to top the year before mason jar.
I have wooden skewer and for the life of me I could not find them anywhere. I own two different size skewers and I could not find one of them in my craft closet. Some might say maybe I have too many crafts but I just think maybe I just need to reorganize it. hehe. I had a dilema of what to use to get my littl ghost head stand up. I then saw my son juice box straw and light bulb went off. I used the straw and attached it to a small foam ball. The foam ball I found seemed to have gotten a little bit beat up. I believe at one time my son might have gotten his hand on it at one time or other.
I hot glued the straw to the lid. I used cheese cloth to cover the foam ball. I made eyes and a mouth with a black sharpy.
I added a tea light to add a glow to my little Halloween mason jar ghost. It fits perfectly with my Halloween decor.
