Halloween Jar-O-Lantern

Looking for an easy way to reuse glass baby food jars this fall? See below for an easy DIY idea for how to turn your empty Beech-Nut® jar into a cute Halloween decoration!

What you’ll need:

  • Orange acrylic paint
  • Black permanent marker
  • Thin wire
  • Pliers
  • Beech-Nut® Naturals jar

What you need


Start by soaking jars for 30 mins in soapy water to remove label from the jar. Then apply roughly 1-2 tablespoons of paint onto the outside of the jar, making sure the paint is evenly spread. Let the paint dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Draw a spooky face on the outside!

Draw the face

Take an 8” piece of wire make loops at the end (this is your handle), and then string another 8” piece of wire through it. You’ll wrap that one around the top of the jar and twist the ends together with pliers.

Add wire handle

Now you’re all set! Trick or Treat! Fill your jar with decor, candy, or a tealight!
