I love Halloween y’all. I have already started my Halloween crafting with these Halloween mason jar toppers. You will love to make these for Halloween party favors or even a large jar for a Halloween party hostess gift. However you use them, these Halloween mason jar toppers will be the hit of the party. You can use any Cricut machine to cut paper into spooky shapes that will be perfect for the tops of these small mason jars. These would also be great in a boo bag for your neighbors so be sure to make quite a few!

This one was first published on September 4, 2014, however, I am republishing it with more information.

Halloween Mason Jar

I choose a snake and lizard for the tops of my jars, however, any spooky shape will be perfect for this project. You can even use this ghost SVG file. Whatever you think will look great on your jars is perfect for this project.

Supplies needed:

How to Make Mason Jar Halloween Toppers

  1. Cut all of your pieces from glitter cardstock. The shapes that I used are no longer available, however, I have a Cricut cut file here with similar shapes. For each jar, you will need a circle to cover the mason jar lid as well as a spooky shape of your choice.
  2. Prepare the eyes by removing the post on the back. I used an old pair of scissors to cut them off. If your google eyes do not have a post, you can skip this step.
  3. Use hot glue to secure everything to the top of the mason jar. Add the circle to the top of the jar lid then add your shape as well as the cat eyes. You might want to also secure the band to the lid so it will all stay together when removed from the jar.
  4. Then just fill your jar with the candy of your choice and put the lid on top. These are ready to be delivered to your neighbor, friend, or handed out at a fun Halloween party.

Perhaps lizards and snakes are not your thing? Replace them with a ghost, skull, pumpkin, or any other shape that you love for this time of year.
