One of our crazy family traditions is on the Sunday before Halloween we all dress up in our Halloween costumes and have a dinner of hotdog mummies, worms, brains, bones, pumpkin poop, and whatever else we can come up with. This may sound crazy but it is a lot of fun. It all started with our granddaughter, because she loves Halloween so much. She always says it is her favorite holiday, but who doesn’t love free candy.
To prepare for the festivity we always decorate the house, watch a few scary movies and make some sort of homemade decoration. Last year it was a wreath for our front door. This year my husband found this cool idea for heads in a jar. We found jars at the dollar tree that were perfect to get the projected started. What I like most about them is they have no writing on the jars. When we were finished we put the Jarheads on the decorated fire place mantel. Since the picture inside the jar is laminated it can be used year after year. Our granddaughter loves it!
- Take pictures of the front and sides of your head
- Then take the 3 images into a photo editing program and splice them together
- Print out the image and laminate it
- Put it in the jar and fill with water
I got the idea from Best Buy, follow this link to see their video
