Mod Podge Colored Jack-O-Lantern Jars

As if I haven't made enough Halloween decorations yet...especially Jack-O-Lanterns...last year I didn't even decorate at all...

DSCN4019Mod Podge Rocks is seriously going to get me in trouble if I keep slacking on my chores because of all the fun ideas she shares! Months ago I saw the idea to use Mod Podge to color jars, and Halloween seemed like the perfect time to try this!

All you need is jars, tea candles, food coloring, dark fabric or paper and a few teaspoons of Mod Podge (a little more if your jars are big, but it seriously doesn't take much).

Cut out a Jack-O-Lantern face from your dark fabric or paper. Use a bit of Mod Podge to adhere it to your jars. Let dry.DSCN4013 Add desired amount of food coloring to some Mod Podge in a separate container such as a baby food container. If you're using small jars, a few teaspoons will be plenty.  DSCN4014Spread your colored Mod Podge all of the jar and let dry. DSCN4015Add another coat or two and let dry.DSCN4017
Light your candles and bask in the gentle glow of your adorable Jack-O-Lanterns.
