Here’s what you need to make Candy Jars in 5 Minutes:
- Small Glass Jars with Metal Lids – Dollar Tree
- Ceramic Easter Painting Sets; Bunny and Chick – Dollar Tree
- Americana Multi-Surface Craft Paint by DecoArt – Chick Yellow and Sky Blue
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Ribbon – 3/8” wide Satin Pastel Rainbow
- Needle-Nose Pliers
- Scissors – I love my Fiskars!
Here’s how to create 5 Minute Easter Treat Jars:
To begin the 5 Minute Easter Candy Jars, gather all materials and remove supplies from packaging. Using needle-nose pliers, remove the metal loop from the top of the ceramic bunny and chick figurines. Attach the bunny and the chick to the metal lids of each decorative glass jar with a glue gun and glue sticks. Let the glue cool completely before moving on to the next step.
Basecoat the bunny and lid with Sky Blue Multi-Surface craft paint and the chick and lid with Chick Yellow Multi-Surface craft paint. Let dry. The Americana Multi-Surface craft paint will adhere to the metal lid and ceramic figurines without chipping or peeling like acrylic craft paint will. Topcoat the bunny and lid with Sky Blue Multi-Surface craft paint and the chick and lid with Chick Yellow Multi-Surface craft paint. Let dry, and apply additional coats, if necessary.
Once dry, screw the lids onto the decorative glass jars. Tie pastel rainbow ribbon around the neck of the glass jar and finish with a bow. Trim ends of ribbon diagonally to prevent fraying. I love how this variegated pastel ribbon goes with both projects. Perfect for all your Spring crafting!
Unscrew and remove the lids from the glass jars, fill with a handful of fun colors of Easter grass and add an assortment of your favorite Easter candies and chocolates from Dollar Tree.
