These Jack-o-lantern treat jars can be filled with sweet treats and look so cute on display!
Are these jack-o-lantern treat jars not the cutest? I was definitely inspired by my DIY Pumpkin Jars when I created these. You can fill them with orange treats to decorate your home (and sneak a snack periodically), or stuff them with orange tissue paper to give them that pumpkin look.
They are really simple to make with just a handful of supplies! And who doesn’t love a good Mason jar craft?
To make these Jack-o-lantern treat jars you need:
Jars (I like the quilted jars for this project)
Green spray paint (I used Krylon Seaweed)
Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses (or some other orange candy)
Fill the jars with the Hershey Kisses. The Pumpkin Spice Kisses are perfect for this with their orange wrapping.
Cut Jack-o-lantern faces out of the black felt and glue them to the jars.
You can stop here, or continue on by adding a decorative stem to the top of the jars.
I scoured my backyard for a twig of just the right width to look right on the jars. When I found it, I cut it into ~2.5″ pieces. One end I cut flat and the other end slanted to look more pumpkin stem-ish. I sanded the twig so the ends would be smooth. I also sanded the sides to remove any excess debris that might be holding on to the twig. Hot glue the flat end of the twig to the center of the jar lid.
You may also want to add some raffia or ribbon to the base of the “stem” for decorative effect.
