Day 14: The Thing In the Jar...

Just a quickie today kids!!! And this one is a doozy! Here's a homegrown Halloween decoration I put together myself with an awesome toy that I actually got at Goodwill and was considering getting rid of... when I recently got a Really Great Idea!!!

Ooooh! See what the heck this thing is after the jump!

So it turns out when you take a:

Fill it with:

Add a drop or two of:

And then find one of these at Goodwill for .99 cents:

It's a King-Kong toy. The Scorpio-Pede from Skull Island.
 It ends up looking like this:

I added burlap and twine to the lid... but you get the idea. 

Personally, I think it makes a great and creepy looking addition to any collection of Halloween potions and vials in a mad scientist's lair or otherwise. Here's a shot of it in the Halloween display at our house! 

From top to bottom you can plainly see it is divided into categories: 

Shelf #1: Er... bowls I guess? Man, one of them isn't even facing the camera! ...And Fez Monkeys. 

Shelf #2: The Mad Scientist and/or alchemist's shelf. 

Shelf #3: The Haunted Cemetery Halloween Village Shelf.

Shelf #4: Halloween Toys and other goofy looking things shelf!

Shelf #5: Trick Or Treat Buckets shelf!

Shelf #6: Halloween Books! (Well, and there's some Thanksgiving books down on the end... but we can ignore those for today).

That's it for today guys! Just a quickie! But I'll be back soon with some more Ghoulish Goodwill Goodies! Until then Happy Haunting!

    1. I suppose if I took it out of the jar... it would be pretty slick. With water.

      HA! Kidding! Thank you!

  2. Looks awesome! Very creative. Now I'm inspired to do something similar, but I don't have any weird-looking toys. I bet a bunch of gummy worms would look pretty gross in a jar like that...
