Recycled Decorative Candy Jars

I purchased three little peanut butter jars from the Dollar Tree so I would have three matching candy containers. With them and a few embellishments you can make something just like it or even better!

Total Time: 1.5 Hours

Yield: 3




  1. The first thing I want to tell you is I didn't have the ability (nor should I have) to buy real candy. But I wanted you to have the same affect. So, I got on line to some copyright free candy image sites and printed some red, white, and blue ones.
  2. I trimmed them down and inserted them into the jars. I was impressed with how real they looked. You of course will use real candy. Some of the best deals are at the Dollar Tree. I looked on line as well, for 4th of July decorations and printed off some. You can do the same and stop there, gluing them on and you are set. I went a bit further.

  4. I got some patriotic straws at the dollar tree and cut them for the center, then either side, and down to the edges and glued them on. They look a little campy, but I think they turned out cute.
  5. Other thoughts went through my head to do the lids so I will list them for your consideration. Doilies, bows, confetti glued on, ribbons, mini flags, stars and anything you like that shows our wonderful colors. So there you have it. A nice dispenser or just a centerpiece for your table. Real candy or faux, it's a cute way to show your sweet side! N-JOY!
