Jar pumpkins-my version

I am sure that you have seen these in blog land and on Pinterest.

Well, here is my version.

My daughter just ended another season of Softball and I usually give her teammates something.  When I found these, I knew that they would be perfect for what I wanted to do.  I have a bunch of the Homemade Chili Sauce jars cuz I think they have such a cute shape.  I thought that they would look awesome as pumpkins. 

Well, as it turned out, I only had five of these {I have used several in my craft room} and I needed eight gifts. Enter the ghosts.

I found these jars, and made them into ghosts.  I painted them the night before her last practice {she couldn't go to the game because of another fun event-SIBS Day*}.  So, they didn't dry all the way. That is why the candy is underneath them in the packaging.  She had a lot of fun helping me out with this project.  She is getting more and more creative everyday. I can't wait to start showing you what she has been creating.

*SIBS {Super Important Brothers and Sisters} Day Workshop is sponsored by Primary Childrens Medical Center and is a support group specifically designed to meet the needs of siblings of children with chronic illness or other disorders {her brother has High Functioning Autism}.
