Everyone needs to spice up their decorations once in a while, but that can get expensive. Some people like to spend the money to do that, but I am not one of them. As you’ve probably noticed from my Make Something Monday’s crafts, I’m a little bit frugal. So, for this week’s DIY project, I decided to go with a fun and frugal craft. It’s super easy to make and took about 15 minutes to make, not including drying time. AAANNNNDDD it costed about $4. It is amazing how Washi Tape can transform and decorate.
I know, I’m calling it a candy jar and putting cashews in it… but I’m trying to keep junk food out of my house, so bear with me and pretend that it’s candy in there.
Things You Will Need
Candle stick holder
You can find all of the materials to make your own DIY Washi Tape candy jar at any craft store. You might even be able to find it at Walmart.
Stretch out your Washi Tape and evenly wrap it around the top of your jar.
I decided to add one more layer around the top and one around the bottom as well.
Circle the glue around the top of the candle stick holder and press it into the center of the bottom of the jar. The candle stick holder will act as a base for the jar.
Make sure you let the glue dry for a while. My glue suggests that it dry for at least 24 hours. Make sure the room is well ventilated too… This stuff is strong!
Pile in your candy (or cashews) and enjoy!
If you wanted to get really fancy, you could make a few jars with similar colors but different patterns, and sit them on a glass candle square. The candy and Washi Tape could add a whole new level of decoration via color palette.
