I saw a cute gum ball jar on a friend's Facebook page the other day and I couldn't resist, I had to make my own version. This treat jar is made from a terra cotta pot and an inexpensive jar. Filled with some candy, or whatever you prefer.
Flower pot with drainage saucer
Antique Matte Mod Podge
Wood ball or knob
Sponge applicators or paint brush
Candy (or preferred filler)
Sand paper or file
2. Paint the pot and saucer the color of your choice.
3. I also decided to add a coat of antique matte Mod Podge. This step is optional. It's hard to see in the photos the difference this made, but I thought it added just the right touch to the color.
4. This is after the Mod Podge step. You can see how it yellowed it out a bit along the edge.
5. Add your stenciled word(s) to the front of the jar and using a clean sponge and your choice of ink, blot over the letters. For the stenciled letters, you can use a Cricut or Big Shot, etc. or you can purchase them already made. Glue your jar to the bottom of the flower pot. Tie the ribbon around the middle. Fill with candy and put your lid in place. Voilà! A fun treat jar made for only a few dollars.
