Yesterday while at the Kmart with my children we saw some really cute mason jar’s that had tags around the lids that said things like frog poison, or witches brew,…
Today I’m going to make a DIY Halloween craft mimicking the decorative Kmart Halloween mason jars we saw using the Lace-Up Skull and Lace-Up Tags.
Poke the holes out of your Lace-Up Skull and Lace Up Tag designs.
(Tip: use a chop stick or the back of a paint brush to poke out the holes. if you poke the holes out first they’re less likely to get stuck in the chipboard with the paint.)
Paint your Lace-Up Skull and Tags! Let dry.
Paint the other side of your Lace-Up Skull and Tags. Painting Idea: you can paint your tag and skull completely black, or you can allow some of the chipboard to show through to make it look old-fashioned. Another option is to paint just the outside edges with a very rough brush stroke. In the example below I painted the backside of my Lace-Up skull with a dry brush that had very little paint on it. I just scrubbed it around the outer edges of the skull shape and the holes.Lace- up tag on the left with just the outside edges paint it black. Lease up tag in the middle with just the center painted black. And third Lace-Up tag painted completely black.
Decorate your tags with a silver paint pen or marker. Write spooky things, like cockroaches, poison, and brains for a Witches Potion.
Decorate your Lace-Up Skull with a silver paint pen.
Pop the Lace-Ip Skull out of the backboard chipboard. Save your chipboard to use as a stencil on a pumpkin or another craft project.
Lace the Lace-Up Skull and Tags with ribbon string or twine.
Tip: every time I buy new pair of pajamas, or something that has ribbon or string with it, I save it and put it in this Tupperware in the basement. That way when I have a project that requires ribbon or twine I just go dig through my ribbon box.
Hot glue your Lace-Up Skull to your mason jar. (Try not to burn yourself. Like me.)
Lace up the tags. Tie them around the mason jars and have your kids fill them up!
We used plastic cockroaches and added dead leave and grass and pine cones from our yard to make it look real.
We filled another with water and green food die for Posion.
And the last one we put cabbage in for brains!
And there you have it your very own DIY Witches brew mason jars craft for kids!

Not only can you make Halloween cards with these fun Halloween crafts. You can also use the tags to label bottles of potion ingredients. Hang they over the mantel, from a dinning room chandelier, or in a tree to create a mobile.
