Happy Halloween everybody! I don’t know about you but some of my fondest childhood memories are of trick or treating with my sisters and kids from our neighbourhood. We’d get all dressed up and paint our faces and traipse round the streets stuffing our faces with as many sweets as is humanly possible.
I recently bought a box of Mason Ball jars (so expect a lot of posts about what you can do with them!) and I decided to try out something I’ve seen on a lot of American blogs. I’ve added a Halloween theme, just in case any of you are having a little party – this will work for both adults and kids alike.
You will need:
Mason Ball jars – I bought mine from an American site and even with the postage it was the cheapest that I could find. Buy Mason Ball Jars here.
1/4″ Grommets – buy grommets here.
Chalk board paint and chalk – buy paint here.
Straws – I bought Halloween themed ones from Pearl and Earl.
Toy spiders – I bought them here.
Drill with a metal drill bit
I can’t wait to make more of these for a summer garden party (oh for the return of those long summer days!). They’d be perfect for cocktails or pimms. Instead of spraying chalkboard paint, you could cover the lids in pretty paper or fabric.
Hope you have a good one (and more people come to your party than they did mine!) x
