Day 5

Yesterday I posted a recipe for ginger cookies.  The only thing better than ginger cookies is ginger cookies dipped in pumpkin dip!  So here is the perfect companion to yesterday's recipe!
Pumpkin Dip
4 c confectioners sugar, siftied
2 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 (30 oz) can pumpkin pie filling
1 t ground ginger
2 t ground cinnamon

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar and cream cheese.
2. Beat until well blended.
3. Beat in remaining ingredients.
4. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Yields about 7 cups.

When witches go riding 
And black cats are seen,
The moon laughs and whispers
'Tis near Halloween

These jars are all over the place and rightly so!  They look fabulous anywhere in your house.  I have some on my mantel, on the piano and in my kitchen!  You can make your own labels or google to find ready made labels.  I have been using Love Manor's awesomeness for my jars since I found them last year.  
All you need for this craft is a jar, Mod Podge and a spooky label!  And just a tip- you can peel off the label when you're done with it.  So if you don't want your jar to be spook-i-fied all year, just take the label off and store it for next October!
Here are some of my personal favorite Love Manor labels.  

If you want any of these, just drag them onto your desktop.  
And I'm sure there are easier or better methods for the following steps, but this is what I do.  I just drag the label into a word document (everyone has Word), size it to fit my jar, 
print it out and then Mod Podge it to my jar.  
Then fill it with something yummy!!
Here are some other jars that I made last year:
