Halloween Mason Jar Craft – Mason Jar Ghosts

Halloween Mason Jar Ghosts


I’ve had a Martha Stewart Glass Spray Paint Kit in my stash since the summer, and have been itching to try it out. Then a few days ago, inspiration struck – Mason Jar Ghosts. These Mason Jar Ghosts are a super quick and easy Halloween craft that you can knock out in just a few minutes, not including drying time. I love these, because they utilize googly eyes, just like my Googly Eye Wreath from last year. Googly eyes are my all-time favorite crafting supply!

I’m going to keep these cute little ghosts and reuse them every year, so I used Martha Stewart glass paint, which is made for painting glass. If you are going to buy a glass spray paint kit, make sure you use a coupon. It’s around $24 for the kit.

Halloween Mason Jar Craft Supplies needed:

Mason jars in various sizes

Rubbing Alcohol

Googly Eyes

Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paint in Gloss Opaque – Wedding Cake color

Martha Stewart Crafts Spray Paint Kit

Plaid Mod Podge Jewel Glue, or a clear drying glue

LED tea lights


Ghost Mason Jars


Step 1: Clean jars with rubbing alcohol.

Step 2. Assemble glass spray paint kit. Place mason jar upside down on a disposable surface, and spray with light coats. Once dry to touch, flip over and spray any area not covered.


Step 3. Once jars have dried – I left them out overnight – attach googly eyes using glue. The Martha Stewart glass paint is really gorgeous in person. It’s glossy and opaque, and, of course, Wedding Cake is the perfect shade of white.

Step 4: I picked up some LED tea lights from Target, and popped them in the jars to make Halloween lanterns. They flicker like real candles, but you don’t have to worry about the jar getting too hot and cracking. They look really cute all lit up.

Mason Jar Ghosts - an easy Halloween craft!
