DIY Halloween Candy Jars


 DIY Halloween Candy Jars

 These cute and easy to make DIY Halloween Candy Jars are perfect for storing that extra Halloween candy in.  I first saw a version of these on Uncommon Designs and just loved how fun they were…and you can’t beat the price!

 DIY Halloween Candy Jars


DIY Apothecary Candy Jars…but they could hold so much more!
They are so easy to make and require just a few supplies.


3 lidded jars (I purchased these at Hobby Lobby)
3 round unfinished wood pieces (Hobby Lobby 2/$1.00)
3 finials (1 of mine is from Hobby Lobby, 2 from Lowes)
3 candlesticks (I used glass ones from the Dollar Tree. You could also use wooden ones from Michael’s or Hobby Lobby)
Unfinished wood letters (Michael’s or Hobby Lobby)
paint colors of choice for jars and letters
ribbon of choice


1. Paint your candlesticks, round wooden pieces, finials and the lids of the jars using spray paint or any latex paint in the color of your choice.  You will need to apply at least 3 coats for good coverage.
2. Paint your wooden letters if you choose to use them in the color of your choice.
3.  Once paint is dry.  Using a strong adhesive such as gorilla glue or liquid nails attach the candlesticks to the smaller routed side of the wood rounds.  The finials to the top of the lids and the glass jars to the flat larger side of the wood round once the candleholder has dried and is stable.

4.  Fill jars with candy of choice.
5.  Tie letters onto jars with ribbon of choice to spell out your word.
