This project is nothing new. Homemade candy jars are a simple project, and can cost you just pennies to make. The most expensive part is constantly keeping them filled with candy.
Normally I don't like anything on my counter tops. I'm odd like that. However, with candy season starting tomorrow, I thought I would make an exception.
My city doesn't pick up glass recyling. If I want to recycle glass I have to drop it off somewhere. I don't know where that is, so I usually keep all my glass jars. You never know when they are going to come in handy.
The jars for this project were a large peanut butter jar, a large applesauce jar, and a bouillon jar. I had the paint and primer on hand. All I had to buy were a few candlesticks from the Dollar Tree.
I didn't have a lot of white spray paint left, but I did have a lot of primer. I decided to prime my lids and candlesticks first. I figured I would need less paint if I did that. When the primer was set, I sprayed everything white.
While I waited for the paint to dry I cleaned my jars up. I was too lazy to look for the Goof off, so I just used a Clorox wipe. It worked really well.
When the candlesticks were ready, I glued them to the bottom of the jars with some strong adhesive. Let it dry and you are done. Oh, then fill your jars with candy.
These candies are disappearing fast. Maybe I will put carrots in the first empty jar. I wonder how fast they would get eaten?
