Looking for a quick last minute Christmas goodie for your friends, neighbors or teachers… Here’s a cutie last minute gift a Santa Candy Jar, that’s high on wow with Styled by Tori Spelling and yet, super easy to make!
I’m always looking for fun and easy gifts for those special people in my life and this one is too cute. Here is what you need to make this fun candy jar…
- Large Mason jar
- Krylon Cherry Red Gloss spray paint
- 1 1/2 inch black ribbon
- Styled by Tori Glitz Pendant
- White yarn
- Clover Pom-Pom maker
- Hot glue
First thing you need to do is paint the lid of your jar with the Krylon Cherry Red Gloss…
I wrapped the jar in a plastic grocery sack and then screwed the lid on, right on top of the bag. It was perfect! Then I sprayed the lid with slow even strokes using my spray paint trigger. Let the lid dry for a few hours. It will be “dry” after about 10 minutes or so, but will need time to cure.
While you are waiting for the paint to dry, you can make the pom pom for the top of the lid. I used a few different types of white yarn and some Divine Twine bakers twine to tie it off for mine…
I used the handy Clover Pom-Pom maker to make the perfect pom for the top of Santa’s hat. If you haven’t used the Pom-Pom maker before you should check out this video on how to use them. They are fabulous!!
Next, I measured out my ribbon and and prepared my pendant…
If you want your pendant to lay totally flat, you will need to take some needle nose pliers and with a little muscle, break off the hook on the back of the pendant. Then use your hot glue gun to glue the ribbon onto the jar along with Santa’s belt buckle (the Styled by Tori Pendant.)
Now, all you have to do is top of the “hat” with the pom-pom. Tack it down with a little bit of hot glue and you are good to go. Fill the jar with some red candy and your Santa Candy Jar is good to go. Include a nice little note and your friends will adore you!
It’s so pretty, you may find that it stays out for display for the entire season!
