I love mason jars for a multitude of reasons. First off, they are an essential item in the art and craft of canning food. Second more importantly though, they make some awesome seasonal decorations too! It is easy to find these types of glassware at dollar stores or even cheaper when you buy them in bulk; I like using my supply around Halloween time to create quick but decorative crafts such as this adorable Peeps Mason Jar that will have your kids excited about creating their very own spooky decoration with candy treats inside all year round.
The Halloween season is creeping upon us, and if you’ve been looking forward to this time of year like I have- then fear not! There are plenty of ideas for decorating the house with little effort. This article will show how to make a quick mason jar decoration that looks super adorable in just 5 minutes or less – perfect timing before trick-or-treating starts happening outside your doorstep.
Halloween Mason Jar Supplies
- Candy Corn, Fall Mix, M&Ms-anything that is harvest or Halloween themed
- Mason jar
- Halloween Peeps

How to Make a Halloween Mason Jar
Fill each jar with a layer of candy corn.
Press 4 Peeps Ghosts or your choice of Peeps along the outer edges of the center of the jar.
Fill top with additional candy corn.
Tie off a ribbon around the lid of your jar.
Additional Halloween Mason Jar Tips
Depending on the size of your jar you could even add more than one layer to your Halloween Peeps Mason Jar Craft.
I used a smaller jar so didn’t have the chance to experiment too much.
The possibilities are really endless when it comes to crafting, but I hope my Halloween craft inspired you all to get out and start making your own frugal, fun decorations.
