Upcycled Easter Candy Jars

About a month ago, I started saving all the glass jars that we otherwise would have put in the recycling bin in order to create a slightly different take on the traditional Easter basket:  an Easter candy Jar!

Fill it with your treat of choice -- jellybeans, chocolate, Peeps, etc.  Besides being super cute, it's actually a great way to keep the candy fresh in an infinitely resealable container!

Here's the how-to:


If you don't like the chalky finish of the paint, use a glossy top coat with clear spray paint.

I hope you'll give this project a try!
