I can’ t believe Halloween is just around the corner.
Today I have some fun little jars for you… yet another thing to do with mason jars! Does the list ever really end?
I’m pretty sure mason jars are on my top 1o list of “Favorite Things”
Just in case you missed the announcement, I am on the design team for PSA Essentials.
If you follow me on facebook, then you might have already seen these, but just in case I thought I would share here too!
I kinda forgot how much I LOVE candy corn until I put these little jars together. I’m not even sure why I like it… it’s really not that good, but I just couldn’t stop popping them in my mouth for some reason!
Needless to say…my pretty little candy jars are no longer filled to the top.
Ok, fine.. you caught me. They are empty!
EMPTY EMPTY EMPTY!
I LOVE CANDY CORN!
Can you sense the guilt here? lol
Ok, enough about the candy corn, I promise… but doesn’t it look so pretty in the mason jar?
So to make these pretty little candy mason jars here is what you will need:
Wooden tags (I got mine from Pick Your Plum)
This is probably one of those self explanatory projects, but for all those people out there like me who need baby steps here is how I did it ; )
First I just stamped my Halloween images on the wooden stamps
Next you just wrap some baker’s twine around the top of the mason jars and slip on the tag, and tie a knot.
Here is the hard part…
Put the candy IN the jar… not in your mouth. You have to take a picture first ; ) Then you can eat it!
You’re kids will love these,
you will too…
I think I like them more than my kids!
I’m all for easily accessible candy!
What is your favorite Halloween Candy?

very cute- its true- so many things you can do with a mason jar.. I luckily am not a candy corn fan, but i do think they are cool looking! Smacking myself for not getting the wooden tags!
I’ve had those wooden tags forever! I kept saving them for something and not using them… time to use them : )

I love your mason jar candy containers, they are darling! I also like the way you’ve used the twine for your tags, very nice!
My blog post today is about mason jar decor too, you’re right they are popular!
Thanks Jan! I could use baker’s twine on everything! : ) Have a great day!
How cute! Mason jars are good for so many things. I love the look of candy corn but if I filled a jar full of candy corn I could keep it year after year! Now chocolate is a different story,
I found your blog from Sugar Bee–thanks for choosing my Witchy Pillow, she is a cutie!
Thanks for stopping by Cindy! You’re pillow is quite adorable! : )
I love this!!! I love the little tags you put on the jars – very cute

Thanks Lucy! Always love linking up with you lovely ladies!
Thanks Lucy! Always a pleasure : ) So glad you liked them!
These candy jars are so colorful. I like the simplicity of the mason jars combined with the colorful candy corn!
Thank you Doreen! The candy is all gone now ; )
Thanks Doreen! My jar isn’t so colorful anymore… I ate all the candy corn : ( lol!
Cute idea, Ashley! Congrats on joining PSA design team.
Thanks Johnnie! It’s really stretching my creativity using stamps in so many ways ; )
These are adorable — what a fun gift for someone at ANY age — and yes, I agree that the hardest part would be getting the candy into the jars :)
Thanks Lauren! There is definitely no more candy in my jars : (
Bonnie and Trish @ Uncommon says
The little tags are perfect Ashley!!! they turned out adorable!!
Thanks ladies! I love those wooden tags. Good thing I bought more : )
Kelly @ Eclectically Vintage says
Finally, another candy corn lover – my kids won’t even eat it (more for me)!
Anything in a mason jar with kitchen twine is my kind of project.
OMG, I don’t know what it is about candy corn that is so dang good! lol. Thanks for stopping by!
So simple, yet SO cute! I like how you could personalize these with any holiday. PSA has some adorable stamps. :)
Thanks Crystal! I love a good simple quick project : ) Something I can actually finish, lol!
