Etch the glass. Fill in the rectangle and over the BOO letters with etching cream. Place the jar on a paper plate or paper towel, and use a disposable plastic knife for easy clean up.Make sure to read the instructions on the back of your etching cream. BOO It Forward Mason JarLet the cream sit for the specified amount of time on the back of the etching cream jar (I find adding another 3-5 minutes creates a better look). Rinse the cream off, then remove the stickers and tape. Now wash the jar throughly.BOO It Forward Mason Jar

  1. That is a very cute idea. I would love it if someone made me a boo kit this year for Halloween!

  2. Wow, you did an incredible job with the lettering there! I absolutely love it. And I love this tradition. We never did this with my neighbors when I was a kid.

  3. I really like how the Mason Jar turned out. I thought Boo’ing was more intense like maybe hiding in the bushes then yelling “Boo” as the neighbor came…lol Treats are great too .. I would love to be Boo’d
