Gather These Supplies

Apply the Labels to the Jar

Print and cut the labels to fit the jars of your choice. Regular weight printer paper will work. Print with laserjet if you can, but if not, print with inkjet and then let dry.

Then spray both sides of your inkjet image with either acrylic spray sealer (preferred) or hairspray. Let dry overnight. When I do this, my printouts don’t smear.

Painting a layer of glow in the dark Mod Podge onto a clear jar

Once you cut out your labels and decide which size should go on which jar, add a thin layer of Mod Podge to the jar (in the area you want to adhere your label).

Applying a label to a jar for Halloween party favors with Mod Podge

Place the label on, and add more Mod Podge over the top of the label.

Note: if your jars are curved toward the top, you can cut a very small triangle in the label so you can overlap a small portion – basically like making a dart in a skirt. You can see a visual here.

Applying a top coat of Mod Podge to Halloween favor jars

Continue to coat the entire jar with Mod Podge. Several thin layers is better than one thick layer.

Drying jars with labels attached

Let the jars dry for about thirty minutes to an hour, then add another coat. (The glow-in-the-dark effect seems to work best with a couple of coats!) Let dry completely.

Fill the Jars

Once you’re satisfied with the level of glow-iness and the jars are completely dry, fill with confetti and ta-da!

It might be fun for everyone at the Halloween gathering to fill their own confetti party favors . . . or even make their own confetti. But other little trinkets or treats can fit in these jars as well!

Or if you want to purchase, the shop has lots of fun confetti options for you, and you can even order custom confetti.
