How to Make Candlestick Candy Jars is not only fun, it’s easy. It involves a little scrounging, spray painting, glueing, and best of all, filling with fun candy. I found my glass jars in my cupboard, the candlesticks at a local thrift store and I picked up the spray paint and glue at a craft store. The whole project only took about an hour, and that’s only because I had to wait for a few coats of the paint to dry. The end result is so worth the time and money (under $20) and I love that it’s totally versatile and can be used regularly in my home and for parties!
Candlestick Candy Jars
My inspiration came from this jar that was given to my family. It’s been awfully lonely for a few months and so I decided it needed a few colorful friends.
- Assorted Candlesticks – Ceramic ones seem to spray paint the best.
- Spray paint in desired color (s) – I used a quick drying, satin finish paint
- Adhesive – I used E-6000 glue
- Glass jars – I used an assortment of recycled glass jars with labels removed and jars washed
- Candy to fill the jars
- Ribbon if you’d like to embellish the jars
- Clean jars
- Spray paint candle stick bases and jar lids
- Once paint has dried, glue jars on candle stick bases
- Fill jars with candy
- Embellish jars if wanted
- Voila! You’re done! Enjoy.
