This week’s From Pinterest to Project post is actually courtesy of my mom. She saw some pumpkins made from jars in a magazine and spent the last year collecting jars to do the project. No matter how hard I try, I just can’t get my mom on the Pinterest bandwagon. So, I had to go out and find a post that included her project. Was I am to find one? But of course. Here is the general idea of what my mom was going for – Halloween painted jars.
My mom painted all of the various sized jars different shade of orange, and then painted on the faces. She also painted all of the lids so that they matched. Then she put the little battery operated tea light candles in then. Here is what they looked like after she painted them all.
And here is what they looked like once she put them all out on display. Aren’t they just the cutest?
In case you weren’t sure, I got all of my crazy craftiness from my momma 🙂 On a side note, a really funny thing happened while my mom was working on this project. She had sent me an email telling me that she had finally gotten around to making them. When I read it a couple hours later I was writing her a response asking her to send me a photo. While I was still in the process of writing the email I got a text from my mom. Can you guess what that text included? Yep, a picture of the pumpkins. I just about died laughing. I told her what happened and she couldn’t believe it either. I guess smart minds really DO think alike huh?
