So we are short on funds this year for Christmas so I got the idea to take empty pickle, salsa and jelly jars and turn them into decorative candy jars. This ended up being more of a struggle then I thought it would be, not because the project was hard but because my Mother In Law kept trying to recycle all my glass jars. She couldn't get it that I needed them for a project she kept telling me there was nothing that I could possibly do with them. Wait till she sees her gift then she'll think otherwise. lol This project is very simple any can be done anytime of the year to be used as gifts. They do not have to be candy jars depending on the size they can hold pens/pencils, paperclips, potpourri just about anything actually.
Here are the supplies you need to do this craft:
Empty washed out jars
Glue - I used regular Elmer's
paint brush and paint sponge
gold glitter paint
If you decide to make one of these please send a picture of it and I will post it under my Crafty You section. Also let me know what you used your jar for. Email the picture to firstname.lastname@example.org .
