I made a fun holiday decoration this weekend that I thought I would share with you. It's an inexpensive and easy holiday candy jar centerpiece. You can fill it up with different candy to match the season. For example, I have Halloween candy in there for October, which also happen to be my favorites-- dark chocolate m&ms, reeces pieces, and candy corn! (This tempting project wouldn't be the one to make if you are on a diet, ha ha.) In the Fall I'll fill it with fall-colored candy, Christmas will be red and green, Easter will be pastels, July will be red, white, and blue. So cute!
Here's how you make it:
1) Get three glass candle holders. Two of these I found at the dollar store and the third smaller one I found at Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
2) Collect three jars. It's more fun if they are slightly different sizes from each other and they should stay under 3" in diameter. I used a jam jar, a smaller pasta sauce jar, and a hot-fudge topping jar.
3) Spray paint the lids of the jars and the glass candle holders white. If your lids have something printed on them, you may need to spray them with a darker color first and then spray them white. Keep coating the jars and candlesticks in 1 minute intervals until fully covered. It may take several layers.
4) Glue the jars onto the candle sticks. I used a hot glue gun. I think something like Gorilla Glue would also work.
5) Fill your jars full of candy!
