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. Love Mason jars or loathe them, I thought making an easy and clever Mason Jar Halloween Costume could be tongue-in-cheek funny – and pretty cute too!
I made this Mason Jar Halloween Costume for DIY Network as one of three Halloween costume tutorials for their website. 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 Mason jar Halloween costume is easy to DIY using foam core, clear vinyl, ribbon, spray paint and a blue marker. Accessorize it by adding a “take and go” Mason jar Halloween beverage and some wide-mouth bands as makeshift bracelets.
