Feel like you’ve seen every possible incarnation of a Mason jar? Yeah, me too! Mason jars are the current Prom Queen of Pinterest – wine glasses, soap dispensers, makeshift chandeliers, wedding reception tables, pantry storage, and on and on. Whether you love Mason jars or loathe them, I thought that making a funny Mason Jar Halloween Costume could be tongue-in-cheek Halloween costume idea — and it’s pretty cute too!
Make a comfortable lid hat
This Mason Jar Halloween costume for women features a show-stopping mason jar lid hat that ties in a cute bow on under your chin. The lid hat is surprisingly comfortable to wear, and it’s made with just cardboard, poster board, ribbon, and a bit of spray paint with a bit of padding. Really, this entire Mason Jar Halloween costume is super cheap to make at home.
I made this Mason Jar Halloween Costume for DIY Network as one of three of my original Halloween costume tutorials at DIYNetwork.com. First for the DIY Network was a Watercolor Paint Box Halloween Costume for my preschool daughter, Elise. Then a Bull In A China Shop Halloween Costume for my toddler son, Liam. And now it’s time for mommy.
Except this is not me – this is my friend Cristin. I needed a model so that I could photograph the Halloween costume and Cristin is one of the most photogenic people I know (and a pretty talented DIY-er as well). I’m very grateful that she agreed to let me dress her up for these shots. Isn’t she a good sport?

This DIY costume is easy to make — it’s just foam core! This Mason jar Halloween costume for women is easy to DIY using foam core, clear vinyl, ribbon, spray paint, and a blue marker. You wear it on your front, so it fits all sizes of women from plus size to regular. Accessorize your costume by adding a “take and go” Mason jar Halloween beverage and some wide-mouth bands as makeshift bracelets.
