Oh, the good ol’ days of taking that HUGE bag of candy to your room and sorting through for all the “Good Stuff”!
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 use to have a logo which you can 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!
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. You can still do this project with a regular jar:
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR TRICK-OR-TREAT CANDY JAR
- Large Glass Jar
- Chalkboard Paint (recommend this)
- Chalkboard Markers
- Stencil (if needed-this was done freehand)
THE HOW TO:
- Clean jar and make sure it is completely dry.
- Spray paint the outside with the chalkboard paint. (Follow handling instructions)
- Repeat spray paint, applying as many coats as needed.
- Once allowed to completely dry you can add whatever wording you want.
- Add ribbon
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.
Let us know what you think by adding your treats (no tricks) in the comments. We love to hear from our readers!
