Here is the video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made them:
1. I found these candy jars at Dollar Tree. Love Dollar Tree!
3. I stuck the vinyl on the inside of the glass jars. You can skip this step and just put the vinyl on the outside at the end. I’ll get into that more later. My intention was to put the vinyl inside and remove it when I added the gold on the inside.
10. What happened was originally, I wanted all of the pumpkins to have gold faces, which is why I wanted to remove the vinyl after the first paint colors. The vinyl would not remove, without removing the paint, so I left it. When I painted the gold, the vinyl pulled away from the green and the ivory ones. I removed the vinyl and sprayed the insides again. Turns out, I don’t like the gold face with the green because there isn’t enough of a contrast. The solution: put black vinyl on the outside of the jar and cover up the gold face.
