How to Make Mini Monster Treat Jars

I try to keep a stash of clean, empty jars in a variety of sizes in my craft closet. They’re great for using as a no-cost art material or for keeping supplies organized. However, every now and then my jar stash becomes a bit too big, so I find myself filling them with treats and surprising friends and family with them. Take a cue from me and have your child turn a small jar into a mini monster treat jar this Halloween season.

This silly vessel can hold a few delicious treats or serve as a holder for some non-candy options a friend is sure to love.

Materials

Instructions

To get started, unfold your piece of craft fur and turn over so that the rough side is facing up. Place your jar onto the fabric, just below the neck. Create a mark where the bottom of the jar is on the fabric; continue doing this all the way down so that you have a cutting line. Cut the fabric.

Next, apply a healthy application of tacky glue to the jar on one side. Apply the fur and add more glue as you work your way around the jar. Press the fur firmly into place to create a strong bond.

Trim away any excess fur if the piece you cut from the fabric is long.

Give your mini monster a colorful top for keeping treats safe! Glue the jar lid to the jar band with the tacky glue. Set aside and let dry.

The finishing touch for this Halloween accessory is a fun googly eye. Add one (or more!) to the front of the jar with your tacky glue. Hold in place for a few seconds. Once dry, add your surprise to the inside of the jar, screw on the bright lid and get ready to share a fellow monster lover.
