DIY Candlestick Candy Jars

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!
