Halloween Mason Jar craft costs about $5 to make 2. Looking for a cheap Halloween DIY you can do with dollar store supplies? This quick Halloween Peeps Mason jar is easy and deliciously sweet. Your kids will love creating this fun Halloween candy display!
I love mason jars for a multitude of reasons. First of all, they are a must if you are into the art of canning and preserving foods. Secondly, they make for some of the best craft, decor, and DIY projects.
Best of all, you can now find them at the dollar store or even cheaper when you buy them in bulk. I love using them to make seasonal decor because they can be made into such versatile decorative pieces that reflect the very essence of the seasons.
The folks at Peeps recently decided that the members of the Blogger Recipe Challenge were a great fit for crafting, and creating delicious ways to use Halloween Peeps.
They sent us each the entire Halloween 2013 Peeps Collection. Ghosts, Pumpkins, Cats, and chocolate covered Peeps were all sent to each of us. We all bring something different to the table so no two projects or recipes are alike.
To be honest, I am not a fan of the way Peeps taste. They are always fresh, and cute, but I am not one for marshmallow. My girls on the other hand LOVE Peeps-I love that they are gluten free because that means my little girl can enjoy them.
I do love the decorative aspect of Peeps though! They are always so alluring, and eye catching–they make for some of the best, kid friendly Halloween projects.
For my Halloween Mason Jar Craft project, I decided to make a Halloween Peeps Mason Jar Craft. I knew it would be fun, easy, and the perfect little touch to my home. I was thinking of using it as a treat incentive jar for my girls too! The certainly are attracted to it!
Plus, did I mention you can buy everything at the dollar store? Now that is my kind of craft!

I used a smaller jar so didn’t have the chance to experiment too much.
