Simple Halloween Utensil Holders for Spooktacular Entertaining

Are you planning a fun Spooktacular celebration this Halloween?  I have a fun and simple DIY Utensil holder idea that your guest will go batty over or maybe even  get  google eyes over.

 Step 1:  Gather needed supplies

Step 2: Paint jars

Choose a location to spray paint your two medium sized mason jars.

Place on a drop cloth or layers of newspaper under Jars to protect surrounding areas

Spray entire jar and allow to dry until paint is dry to touch or overnight

Step 3:  Attach Ribbon around rim of mason jar

Measure and cut enough ribbon to place around the top opening of the Mason Jar.  Use either the Weststcott Mini Hot Glue Gun or Westcott Hot Glue Pen to glue the ribbon onto the jar by placing a thin layer of glue around the outside mouth of the mason jar then quickly place the ribbon on the jar thence into a bow once its in place.

Step 4:  Use a Westcott Glue gun or Wescott Glue Pen to glue on your choice of craft foam or wood pieces

Choose which style you want to create – Spider, pumpkins, bats or google eyes  jar.  Then glue your chosen pieces around jar to create your fun utensil or start holders for your spooktacular  celebration.
