    Holidays are my favorite time for baking and crafting! Probably because there are so many different and creative things you can do. And one of my favorite brands to craft with is Sweetworks! They have an amazing array of some of my favorite treats that are just perfect for Holiday crafting and baking! Since in October I created delicious Leaky Cauldron Brownies with Sweetworks I wanted to do something crafty this time. So this time I made a Frosted Christmas Candy Jar that is sure to please your home!

    Frosted Candy Jar Tutorial

    Supplies needed:

    Note: I used a Matte Satin finish on my project because the Crystal Clear was out of stock. But if I did this again, I would have chosen the Crystal clear finishing spray instead. But it is your choice.

    To begin you need to clean the apothecary jar and make sure it is dried thoroughly.

    The fun part is that you can make fun designs through your jar by adding elastic bands around the jar in a fun pattern. However you arrange them, just make sure that they all lay flat and there is no twist in the elastic.

    In a well ventilated area spray the jar with the Frosted glass spray according to the directions. We have a great place out in our garage set up specifically for this type of project. So I popped open the garage door and started spraying away.

    Then allow the paint to dry. I did 2 coats and only had to wait about 2-5 minutes between each coating

    Then wait about an hour or two to ensure that the frost is completely dry to the touch and you will remove the rubber bands. Gently to ensure it doesn’t break off any of the frosted paint still on the glass.

    Then apply the finish spray. This is where I said I would rather have used the crystal clear finish. Because the matte gives a soft frosted look itself so the design I created isn’t as noticeable. But if you use the clear coat, it will show up a lot better.

    Again, you will want to do 2 coats and wait about 2-5 minutes between each one.

    Then wait another 1-2 hours to ensure it is completely dry.

    You will now glue the Apothecary jar to the candle stand with the pro-bond glue. Put a little on the base of the jar and attach to the stand. Allow to dry.

    Seriously, you will spend more time waiting for things to dry than you will spend actually working on this craft. It is a great “in the background” craft because you will show up for a minute or two at a time to do the next step and then walk away while you wait for things to dry.

    After the pro-bond glue is dry then it is time to attach the tinsel. Carefully add a ring of Hot glue around the outside base of the stand.

    Then very carefully add the tinsel and ensure it is in contact with the hot glue. I used a bamboo skewer so I could have precision and wouldn’t burn myself.

    Trip off any excess of the tinsel and then allow the hot glue to cool. If you have any other garnishes you’d like to add, now is the time.

    But otherwise the candy jar is now complete and ready for the best part of all. Filling it with Sweetworks Candy! Oh yum!

    Sweetworks has a lot of different candy you can choose from Gumballs to Sixlets (yeah, we already know that is my favorite) and even cute little wrapped Santa chocolates! But we also absolutely love the Mint Ovation Sticks! The husband tried to sneak off with that one! But I caught him! Yeah, don’t be taking my mint ovation sticks! They are so amazing! Even though they don’t fit in my candy jar; but that’s OK, cause I don’t plan to share them anyway! lol. OK, so I’m sharing them with the husband..but that’s only cause I love him so much.

    Just fill it all up with your favorite Sweetworks candy, and set the dish out with the rest of your Holiday decor! The kids will love it and even your guests will have fun!
