DIY Candy Jar!

So have you ever seen those fun candy jars made from terracotta pots? I’ve seen a lot of people make them into gumball machines like the one here, but thought it would be fun to dress it up a little more! What do you think?!

These are pretty easy to make, and I think turn out really cute! Everyone could use another candy jar, right?!

Supplies needed:

Terracotta pot and lid

Glass bowl

E-6000 glue



painting terracota pots First things first is to paint your pot, lid and knob. Once it is dry you can glue the glass bowl to the pot. Then glue the knob to the center of the lid. After that you can add any other fun embellishments you’d like! I added some vinyl to the glass and glitter on the lid…just for fun!! :)
