Cling Boo Jars

Project Description: Create your own ghost jars with Grafix Cling Film, an easy craft that is perfect for kids of all ages.

Designed by: Tami Sanders

Difficulty: Easy


  • Grafix White Cling Film
  • Sharpie: Black Ultrafine Point and Black Fine Point Markers
  • Mason Jar
  • Black and Orange Twine
  • Battery Operated Tea Light
  • Ghost Template
  • Google Eyes
  • Computer
  • Copier Paper
  • Printer
  • Scissors
  • Circle Punches: 1 1/8”, 1”, and 7/8”

Steps to Make This:

  1. Start by copying a black and white ghost design of your choosing then paste it into a Word document.
  2. Adjust the size of your ghosts based on the size of your jar.
  3. Then print the ghost template on a sheet of copier paper (it is important that you have a black background).
  4. Partially peel the Grafix White Cling Film from the sheet liner, then place the template on the liner and replace the Cling Film.
  5. Use the Sharpie Ultrafine black pen to outline the ghosts and to fill in the mouth. (You will need 2 sets of the ghosts).
  6. Remove the template, and clean up any outlines that need it by going over the lines with the Sharpie Black Fine Point Marker.
  7. Cut out each ghost with the backing intact, it’s easier that way.
  8. Add google eyes to the ghosts (you can glue them on if you want).
  9. On the remaining portion of the film use your circle punch to make several circles of each size.
  10. Write “boo” at the center of the circles, draw eyes in both “o”s, and then outline the circles.
  11. Peel off the backings from the ghosts and the circles and begin applying them to all sides of the jar.
  12. On another piece of the Cling Film draw a circle on the back of a piece of White Vinyl using the inside of the jar lid as a guide.
  13. Cut out and write “spooky” at the center of the circle.
  14. Then place the spooky circle on the inner lid.
  15. Place a tea light inside the jar for some spooky illumination.
  16. Screw-on the lid of the jar and add twine in a bow.
