Spider Mason Jar Craft
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we were looking for a fun halloween mason jar craft the kid could do while I made one of my own. The kiddo had an idea for a spider that held treats and we brought it to life with one of the easiest, funnest spider craft for kids that I think we’ve ever tackled together.
Although we’re may not get around to filling ours with treats (the straws ended up looking too cute to trade out), this fun spider mason jar craft is a great halloween decoration that kids can make in just a few minutes. If you’re ready to learn how to make this easy kids halloween craft, let’s get started.

Tips to Make This Halloween Kids Craft
- You’re not going to find me complaining if you want to make your spider mason jars with a large mason jar. But I gave the kiddo the 500 ml wide mouth mason jar like these here to decorate like a spider while i made some Jack Skellington mason jars in the same size.
- Let the kiddo decide if they would like this easy halloween mason jar as a treat jar for a teacher gift or a luminary to decorate for halloween at home. If they want to make it into a treat jar, be sure to grab some dishwasher-safe Mod Podge. If they go the way of the luminary, definitely use the (much cheaper) standard Mod Podge.
- We just grabbed one of every size googley eye from this kit we have here. But you could use all the same size, you could use pink. Any googley eyes. Don’t feel constrained by our black and white eyes that we chose to make.
How Do I Make this Spider Mason Jar Craft?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Hot glue gun and glue
- Mod Podge (optional)
- Paint the jar black and allow the paint to dry completely. It may take several coats to get good coverage.
- Add a sealant coat of Mod Podge (optional). Allow this to dry completely.
- With the hot glue, attach the googly eyes to the center of the jar on the front.
- Bend each of the pipe cleaners in a 90-degree angle to form a knee (of sorts) and again bend each about 1" from the end in a 90-degree angle fo form a foot.
- Glue each of the four pipe cleaners on either side of the jar to the inside edge and enjoy!
