Recycle old jars to make the cutest Halloween treat – these would be great to give to friends or teachers around Halloween!
- Acrylic paint made for glass (Enamels by Folk Art), yellow, orange, white
- Glitter I used Twinkles Crystal by DecoArt…it’s not as messy as glitter!
- Gloss Interior Varnish (sealer)
- Ruler and tape
- Candy treats
With tape, tape off the center of the jar. I divided the jar in thirds. I found by putting a ruler in the jar, it’s easier to keep the tape line straight.
You are ready to paint, paint the bottom yellow and top white. You will need two coats. Remove tape and paint center orange (2 coats). Read the directions on the glass paint, you can bake it or air dry (I baked mine). Next step is to glitter. I like to use Twinkles Crystal, which is paint with glitter in it (it’s not as messy as glitter) but you could use white, yellow and orange glitter. Let dry, then brush a coat of your sealer, and let dry again. Then just get your treats ready – I filled clear bags with candy and closed the bag with a ribbon.
Now I’m wondering, what other type of candy can I paint on a jar?? 🙂
