My friend gave me this idea. I always save my glass jars for food storage, shaking homemade salad dressing, etc. I had plenty to pull out for this project.
Make a pumpkin face on the jars with masking tape. Then paint the entire jar orange or whatever color you wish. Black (bat), green (alien), white (ghost) or purple would be cool. Let the paint dry, peel off the tape and you have pumpkin jars! The boys LOVED it. And to my surprise not one has crashed on the floor and shattered.
