Happy Thursday, everyone! This post is a throw back from a few years ago and is still one of my favorite DIY projects. Come see how simple it is to turn sliced pimientos jars into Halloween Candy Jars! These make cute gifts and decorations, too!
This easy do it yourself project is simple and inexpensive. I used an assortment of 4 ounce glass jars, but you can easily substitute a plastic container or one of a different size. So, it starts with a 4 ounce jar of Goya sliced pimientos. If you like you can make your own homemade Southern Style Pimento Cheese
1-Empty the contents of the jar and wash thoroughly. I usually run the jar and lid through the dishwasher and allow to dry. ( Empty 4 oz. glass jars here )
2-Take the clean, dry lids outside and prepare for paint. I like to make several at a time.
These are the paints I like to use for this project. They are both Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch products. The black is a Satin finish and the Orange a gloss finish. ( Rust-Oleum Satin Black Paint here ) ( Rust-Oleum Gloss Orange here )
3-Spray paint the lids orange and allow to dry. Make sure you paint around the edges. A few light coats of paint usually does the trick.
4-Paint the knobs black. I used wooden knobs I had on hand but you can find some similar here: ( Wooden Knobs here )
5-Once dry, glue the knobs to the center of the lids with E6000 glue and allow to dry. ( Hot Glue Gun and glue here )
6-Fill the jars with your favorite Halloween candy! You can tie some jute or raffia around the neck of the jar to jazz them up a bit. Or use some fun Halloween themed ribbon. ( Candy Corn here )
Aren’t these the sweetest little jars? And they fit in perfectly with any fall decor.
I used candy corn because it looks so festive with the colors of the jar, but you could also use candy pumpkins or any other Halloween candy.
I gave a few of these to my fairy-godchildren since they love candy corn and I love them.
These are so cute and fun to make. And they are fun to give away too! Because this is so simple, let the kids in on the fun! Perhaps a gift for your child’s teacher or a sweet neighbor? Just remember, these are made of glass and are breakable so obviously exercise caution when giving them to young children. Safety first, right?
Thank you for stopping by and please stay safe in the storm. xo Dell
