What a Scream! Floating Head in a Jar DIY
Make a bit of Halloween decor that will really turn heads with this fun DIY. We know you already love taking selfies, making this a spooky way to put one on show. And this project is so easy, which makes it fun to do with your nieces or nephews — creating a collection of mini heads in a jar!
What You'll Need
- Printed picture of yourself
- Sealable glass jar
- Craft moss
- Green food coloring
- Take a picture of yourself against a white background and then size to fit the jar you're using. Print on glossy film paper, or head to your local copy center and get a bit of help. My jar was six inches in height, so I created a horizontal image to roll into the jar. Trim around the picture and drop in the container.
- Now you can sprinkle some craft moss into the jar to add a bit of icky texture along with a few strands of burlap, which looks a bit like hair floating in the water.
- Add two drops of green food coloring to the jar and then fill with water. Close the lid and enjoy your mini floating head! If you find a few bits floating in front of your face, you can easily move with the help of a wooden skewer. Place on your mantel or nestled in with your Halloween decorations for a spooky-good time.
