Mason Jar Candy Corn!

This week's PapertreyInk Make it Monday video was a tutorial about sprucing up your Mason Jars.  I don't have the kind of Mason Jar that Melisa shows in her video - but I do have a ton of other kinds so I got to work ......

I decided that I would make my Mason Jar into a LARGE candy corn - I don't even like the candies but I really wish I did - they look so pretty!

I basically followed the video when painting the jars....making sure to add a bit of a vintage look by sanding the paint when dry, to show the jar label.

I used the stamp set Fall Elegance to create my tag.  I die cut the Bookmark Die and then cut it a  wee bit shorter, rounding the corners with my Corner chomper.

To emboss the gold dots on the Mason Jar, I used an older set, Shapes by Design.


  1. So beautiful! I just adore the candy corn look :). Perfect in every way. Thanks for playing along!

  2. What a great idea making it the colors of candy corn... genius! This is so sweet!

  3. Love the colors and your ribbons! Very creative and the tags are perfect!

  6. Looks like we were thinking a like Bonnie! I LOVE candy corn so it was an easy decision for me! I really like the tags you added to yours and that black & white gingham ribbon is just perfect for the jars...great job! :0)

  7. Super cute hard Bonnie! Perfect for Halloween! Love how you painted them!

  8. Your Candy Corn Jars are...SO CUTE!

  9. When I saw this video, I had thought of doing a candy corn jar, too, but changed my plan to something more understated that could work with my decor for a longer period of time. I do love how your jars turned out. They're very festive.
