DIY Spring Candy Jars

So... I am not going to lie...I put ALL my spring/Easter stuff up on the 18th :) I just couldn't wait any longer!
So...one day this week...at, well... LATE at night...I fell asleep....only to be jolted awake by a phone call...

 It was my sister...who...shared an idea with me that I HAD to do according to her....:)

This was the idea....

So...I went to the DOLLAR store and bought the candle stick holders...
I found my jars at Walmart cause that is where I was that day...

I took the rubber piece off the lid that suctions it down....

SPRAY painted(it was 70 degrees :)) the lid and the candlestick holder....

Let it dry...used E6000 and glued the jar on the candlestick holder...added candy...put on the cute lid....and you have...
 
A super cute turquoise jar...recognize the jelly beans...the left overs :)
 
And a super cute pink candy jar...
 
So...as long as my sister calls with a good idea....I simply can't be mad she WOKE me up :)!

Happy candy jar making!!!
