Here at the Sitcom, we do silly Halloween.  I am opposed to scary simply because being scared is not one of my favorite things.  After seeing the Monsters University Movie, I was inspired.  I was not only excited to see a monster movie that makes me smile, but inspired to create!

My creation?  A Jar O’ Monsters!

Inspired by this hilarious prequel to Monsters, Inc., I decided to create a Jar O’ Monsters emulating some of the wonderful characters from the movie!

For this project I used:

6 wooden spoons
1 recycled glass jar
acrylic paints in bright colors
glass cabochons (for eyes)
Pipecleaners, paper scraps, buttons
hot glue
clear acrylic sealant

I have been collecting these salad dressing jars for a while now.  I love the shape of them!  And now I have a project in mind for one!  Begin by painting the jar a bright green.  It will take more than one coat of paint and you will need to allow it to dry between coats.

While the jar is drying, paint the wooden spoons some bright monster-like colors.  Also in preparation for creating the monsters, paint a bunch of cabochons white.  Again, it will take several coats of paint.

Once the eyes and spoons are painted, begin by gluing the eyes in place with hot glue.  As you can see, there is a never-ending variety of choices as to placement and numbers.  No two monsters are alike!

Now lets make some monsters!
