Poison Jar

I am not quite sure why, but I love to decorate for Halloween.  I even like skull decorations, as long a they aren't gruesome.  I found a really cool jar when I was out thrifting and had to make something new for Halloween this year.





What you will need:
Glass jar
Paint
Embellishments - I used skull rings
E6000
Brillo pads





First, I spray painted the jar, lid & skulls black.




After the bottle was dry, I cut the skull rings apart so just the skull was left, dabbed on some E6000, and attached them to the bottle.







I wanted the jar to have some depth, so I sprayed the black bottle with a layer of my favorite silver paint.



After it was dry, I used a brillo pad to rough it up.



Here it is when it was finished!


What are you creating for Halloween?




Thanks so much for stopping by!
