witch's brew ingredient mason jar pumpkins

ahh. mason jars.
chances are if you are reading this, 
you love mason jars as much as i do.
i have about a million of them lying around.

so i wanted to do some sorta mason jar halloween thing and nothing original came to mind seeing there are about a gajillion halloween jars in blogland already.

so i compromised and made these pumpkins instead.
 
yup i carved the mason jars instead.
and each pumpkin only took me about 15 minutes. 
easy peasy.

sorry no pattern for the jar-i just drew it freehand. but it's better i think, to have the jars look different anyway.
i got the eyeball candy at dollar tree too but one bag was not enough to fill the pumpkin. 
so i used the kisses i already had to fill it up.

i colored the lid as shown to give it more interest. and to look more halloweenish cuz i don't think witches have nice clean mason jars with nice clean lids lying around.
then i made 2 more. 



any kind of candy will work for these pumpkins, this is just what i had on hand at 10:45pm when i started these (yikes!). 
just let loose and be creative and before you know it you'll have a whole slew of ingredients to make your witch's brew.
okie dokie, good luck with that!
