Quick Halloween Apothecary Jar

I have a ton of these apothecary jars on hand at all times.  Whenever Michael's or AC Moore has them on sale, I stock up because they really work well for any holiday-inspired projects.  Of course this morning, I decided to do a Halloween one.
I printed off the arsenic image from The Graphics Fairy (did anyone else notice Martha Stewart Crafts has a very similar label too?  Maybe Martha's been browsing Karen's site?!  Lol!).  I distressed the edges a bit and then mod podged it to the front of the jar.  I add another coat on top to seal it in.
Once it was dry, I added the orange rhinestone eyes and tea-stained seam binding.  I had some left over orange and black spiders from the Dollar Store so I added them in as well since I refuse to buy any type of Halloween candy just yet.  My kids would gobble it down in an instant.  Okay, okay, so would I!

So there you have it, another quick easy Halloween project for a mantel, bookshelf, etc.!

I think it looks great, even without candy! The spiders were a great idea. I love the colors in the seam binding.

Very cute! I have a jar just like this. I should decorate it for Halloween like you did.
