Gifts in a Jar DIY

While Sierra and I were out and about “Targeting,” (Target Shopping- It’s a sport. LOL) we came across some cute jars filled with candy for $3.99. Sierra decided to get them and spruce them up for her daughter’s jazzy jar entry. As soon as I saw them, I knew I could make them and for a better price.

See I have a Starbucks addiction, so I go thru a lot of Starbucks bottles. I do recycle them and usually have some on hand at any given time. So you will need a recycled Starbucks bottle, candy of your choice, cute ribbon. The good thing about Starbucks bottles, is they are shaped similar to old milk bottles and they are easy to spruce up. Hot soapy water should get the label off. I used “goof off” to get the residue off after the label came off. Could use goo gone or any other adhesive remover. Give them a good wash or run thru the dishwasher. I did paint my lids but you could leave as is and tape a label on the top.
