I love to do crafts, but honestly I don’t always have a lot of or extra time to invest into time-consuming projects. I am all about squeezing in a little craftiness when you can! Luckily, this little DIY project was perfect for that! The total time invested, not including the drying time, was probably about 15 minutes. It seriously could not have been any easier.
What I really love about this project, however, is that though I wanted to make them to display Easter candy, they are neutral enough to work for other holidays too–just swap out the candy!
I’ve also seen people paint plastic rabbits (and other animals) glued to the lids to use as handles and they look adorable!
SO simple to make & so cute! Fill them up with whatever you’d like. I found some pastel M&M’s, gum balls and malt balls and love how they are look in these jars! Then i just added some green shredded paper in the bottom of the jars.
Here is what you need:
- 3 mason jars, in varying heights (You could also use clean pickle or other jars if you’d prefer)
- 3 lids & lid rings
- 3 glass candlesticks (from the dollar store)
- hot glue (optional)
- E6000 glue
- spray paint
- chalkboard paint (optional)
