If you couldn’t tell yet, I love pink. Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I have more of a reason to make everything pink. My first victim? A very fun and easy to make DIY candy jar! This is one of those crafts that you never would’ve guessed was under $5. You can get all of your supplies at the Dollar Store except the Deco Pens (but you could also use Sharpies). You might not be able to find the knobs there either, but any craft store will have them just a bit more than $1.
Things You Will Need:
Terra cotta pots
Terra cotta base
Deco markers (optional)
Newspaper or paper towels
Paint everything pink! I put two layers of acrylic paint on the pots, the base and the knob.
If you plan to decorate your candy jar with your Deco pens, now is the time.
Then, you can go ahead and super glue the bottom of your pots together, glue the knob to the bottom of the base, and glue the glass bowl into the top pot.
You will want to let all of these dry over night.
Add some ribbon if you’d like to spice it up a little bit. I used the heart-themed ribbon to break up all of the solid pink.
Pour your candy of choice into the jar. If you like the craft but are on a diet, fill the jar with pistachios or almonds instead.
This would be a fun craft to make with you friends or kids (sans super glue). Girls night, anyone? Get your friends together for a craft and movie night. When you’re finished, you can sit and eat all of the chocolate!
The candy jar might even be a nice Valentine’s Day gift. People keep coming up with more and more creative ways to give candy. I think this option will turn some heads 😉
I apologize for the rough pictures. The candy jar, when fully constructed, was slightly too large to fit in my new light box. I was sad. Oh well…
Let me know what you think! Happy crafting!
