Today we have one of our mason jar crafts for with designs for Halloween and fall. I worked on painting mason jars and other jars I collected over a bit of time. I wanted to decorate mason jars for fall. I went to the garage to see what I could find in the way of spray paint colors so I wouldn’t have to buy any this time around. Perfect I thought to myself a leftover apple green spray paint, buttercup yellow spray paint from previous projects and orange spray paint thanks to the Mr. working construction.

DIY Fall and Halloween Mason Jars
This is an older post so the photography wasn’t as skilled (plus, I didn’t have a good camera) but, the tutorial is easy and you will have pretty jars to decorate when you are done by following the steps below. Let’s decorate Mason Jars for Halloween and mason jars for fall.
How to Spray Paint Mason Jars
- First Wash and dry your jars.
- Grab a large piece of cardboard or plastic bag to protect your table or work surface
- Paint outside or in a well-ventilated garage
- To spray place jars upside down on mouths
- Coat lightly, ensuring there are no drips
- Make sure to allow the paint to dry in between sprays
- I set them in the sun so it was pretty fast.
- After several coats hold up in the sun to see if you missed any spots. It will show through if you need a touch-up.
- Spray as needed.
- Next, I sprayed the lip of the lid which was covered when upside down.
- Let dry completely and decorate!
Honestly, this is an easy project with fun results.
Tip: Just make sure if using multiple colors to grab the same color when you are spraying a second time! Remember to let dry completely between coats! Spraying spray paint heavily only creates drips and problems.
Mason Jar Crafts – Fall
You can keep it simple with ribbon or as I did on the orange jar cut out felt then sewed a leaf line through the leaves. I just used a pretty pin to tack leaves in place but you could sew it or tie it into a bow.
Mason Jar Crafts Halloween
For this jar, I thought a black wire spider web and some black and white skull ribbon would be cute. I had the ribbon and webbing leftover from last year that I picked up on clearance. The wire webbing 5.5″ size for a standard mason jar.
Now I did decorate a few smaller jars and was thinking I could add colorful lollypops in them. Either for a special gift for someone or for the kids to grab and have a treat. I forgot to get the lollypops to stick in them for the photo. Oops! No treats today!
I hope you are inspired to create your own version of these decorated mason jars. Use them for treats, flowers, holding your creative tools and decorating your studio for fall or Halloween! Just don’t be a scared y cat to try this, as it is super simple!
