Update!!! I have a new tutorial with step-by-step instructions here:
Hi everyone! Are you ready to start decorating for Halloween? Well here’s a fun, easy, and inexpensive craft to make. A few years ago I made a candy jar but couldn’t find it after we moved, so this past weekend my son and I made a new one.
I spray painted the pot, saucer, and knob then glued (with e6000) the vase onto the pot. It was a little bare so I added the ribbon, which completed the whole look. This candy jar is super simple and very inexpensive. You can find all of these items at the dollar store or local craft store.
Note: The lid doesn’t get glued onto the glass jar (and don’t paint the inside). You can easily refill the jar when you’re little monsters have eaten all the candy. :)
The last time I made one I added a lot of details and glitter, this time around I wanted something simple and I actually like it a lot better. If you make one send me a link, I’d love to see your version. Thanks for stopping by!
