DIY Candy Jars

A few of you noticed my candy jars from Madison’s Valentine’s preschool mini sweets table on Facebook and wanted the 411! I have been saving every glass jar after we finish the food. So I have so many jars from pickles to jelly jars. SAVE YOUR JARS my peeps…..there is so many things you can do with them!! Here is a pickle and a jelly jar. I keep E-6000 on hand~permanently bonds anything!! The glass candlesticks are from Dollar Tree. I simply sprayed the candlesticks and the jar tops. (this took several coats)
Viola…lovely candy jars!
I just added the felt flower with double sided tape because it match my other table decor. I used tape so I can take it off easily and use this jar for another time.

    Love this idea! I usually save jars, too, but I do have a question: How do you get the pickle smell out of pickle jars? It seems like even after going thru the diswasher cycle and sitting with the lids off, they still smell pickle-y! Any advice? Thanks!

    First, wash the jars well in hot, soapy water and rinse completely. Then pour in a solution of equal parts vinegar and water (or make a paste of baking soda and water and apply with a sponge to the inside of the jars). Let stand overnight with the lids off. Rinse, dry, store with the lids off, and that should do it.
