Here is another simple (but messy) Halloween Craft!  You need just a few supplies.  My Mod Podge has gone bad I think, so we used it along with Elmer’s Glue (My daughter sorta mixed it together—she is 3 so this wasn’t exact science).  I think Mod Podge alone would have been fine.  We were using items we had so we used orange crepe paper on a roll for the pumpkins and white tissue paper like you use to wrap a gift for the ghosts.

My daughter coated the outside of the baby food jar with glue/Mod Podge.

She then took pieces of crepe paper and put it on the jar. We gave the whole thing another coat of mod podge. It is important to dab gently so you don’t tear and wipe the crepe paper away.

We  made faces with scraps of black construction paper and then waited for them to dry.

Once they were dry I thought they probably could have used another coat of Mod Podge, however that could be because mine was old.  I didn’t want to get it back out so I just gave them a shot of clear spray paint.

It is starting to look a lot like Halloween around here!
