Looking for a spooky way to store your Halloween candy? Craft the Frankenstein Candy Jar from a glass or plastic jar, cardstock, paint, and wiggly eyes. This craft is great for elementary-aged children looking for something to do on Halloween! This is the perfect party favor for a Halloween party and can even be filled with candy corn, or some other type of small candy, and given to trick-or-treaters on Halloween!

What you'll need:

  • 1 small glass or plastic jar with a lid
  • Green and black paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Tacky glue
  • Black marker
  • 2 wiggly eyes
  • 2 metal bolts (optional)
How to make your Frankenstein candy jar:
  1. Using the paintbrush, paint the jar green and the top black. Allow the paint to dry completely. (see photos)
  2. Glue the wiggly eyes to the green part of the jar as Frankenstein's eyes. Let the glue dry. (see photos)
  3. Using a black marker, draw a nose, mouth, and stitches on the green paint. (see photos)
  4. Glue two bolts to the side of Frankenstein's head as his ears. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  5. Your jar is now complete and ready to fill with candy!
