Happy Halloween!!  This is Julie of http://mommys-playroom.blogspot.ca/.  I have a simple Halloween themed candy jar I made for my daughter to share with you today.

 I started with an empty canning jar and a pile of Smarties.  It was so tempting to eat them but I resisted!



 The lower portion of the jar is made from a piece of bright yellow cardstock cut at 3" x 15".  The old fence was cut at 2 1/2"  from Mini Monsters.  I cut the fence four times and adhered it to the yellow cardstock using one of my favorite adhesives, a Stampin' Up 2-way glue pen.

I used a pumpkin from Chic & Scary and cut it at 2 1/4".  The ribbon is American Crafts Premium Ribbon.

 Have a spooky Halloween!!
