All you need are
- a mason jar
- black paint
- elmers glue
I also painted some of the black paint in the outside the jar, especially the lip for extra dirt.
For the cloudy exterior, take elmers glue, dab it onto a paper towel, and rub that over the jar. That really makes the jars look like you dug them out of the back of a rusted and haunted farmhouse.
Here are the jars with the candles in them prior to me adding the glue.
Here are the jars after the glue.
I think I'll string a few on wire and hang them up high while the others I'll put electric tealights in and use to light our steps for Halloween.
Oh, and thanks to a few smashed fingers and some structural damage to the hair I am now the proud owner of a mannequin. It's insane that I could get a fully standing, human sized prop for $25. Yup.
