Homemade Candy Buffet Jars

Posted: October 6, 2011 in Crafts, D.I.Y, Party
there are some things i just can’t throw away.
glass jars…. are one of those things.
why?  do you ask.
because first of all i store all sorts of stuff in them.
embroidery floss, buttons, pom pom trim, etc…
and secondly…
you can make things with them.
i took these jars and turned them into….
these jars.
and of course it’s so simple.
i just spray painted my candlesticks and lids.
 (with a grey primer first. helps to cover the writing on the jars)
then used some E6000 glue and glued the jars on top.
fill them up with whatever you’d like.
i found some gumballs and sixlets at party city. love how they are so bright and fun!
then i just added some green shredded paper and some candies to the other jar.
and the fun part is
i can switch them out with the holidays/seasons!!
gotta love it!  🙂
  1. […] This is another rendition of a candy and gumball machine. It is a simple yet creative tutorial and they can be used at parties on the table either as decors or can be stored with candies and gumballs. What you will need are glass jars, white paint, strong adhesive glue and some pretty candle stands. Firstly clean the glass jars and then let them dry completely. Then paint the jar lid and candle stands with white color and also let them dry completely. Then stick the glass jar to the candle stand using strong adhesive glue. There you go pretty jars ready to be used. You can then decorate it with candies, gumballs and then place them on the table. No sooner you place them on the table you will realize how fast they attract people’ attention.source. […]
