Turning a large thrift store jar into a DIY Glass Trick or Treat Candy Jar.
If you want a place to store all the yummy treats, either for your trick-or-treaters or for your own stash, here is a quick DIY project.
Now, if you are new here, we are gonna say, we love a thrift store makeover. That’s where this one started HOWEVER you can easily do this with a large glass food jar, a glass jar that you bought at the store, or even one that has a broken/lost lid.
So recently, while at the thrift store (did you ever notice a lot of our posts start this way?) Salvage Sister spotted, with her little eye, a large glass jar that was painted with chalkboard paint.
It had glitter stickers on it, but upon careful inspection, it was determined they would peel right off.
The jar, at one time, had a logo that you could still see on the inside. So get this…they recycled it and now it was being recycled AGAIN! How cool is that?
Back home the stickers were removed and the phrase “The good stuff is in here.” was added.
A ribbon (from a freebie pile) was attached and ….well that’s it!
Now, if you can’t find a random jar that was recycled and painted with chalkboard paint and had stickers on it that could be removed, don’t fret. Really, you can still do this project with a regular jar:

That can be in the pantry, filled with yummy treats, all year long. Or in your closet for your treats, no judging!
You can take a soft lightly wet cloth and change out the lettering as desired.
If you take off the orange ribbon, this really can be used all year long.
