If you work at a desk during the day, or you just like having candy/treats around, you are probably familiar with the different ways people store their candy/treats.  Here is a simple yet fun Candy/Treat Jar that was made from things I had just lying around the house.  You could keep it for yourself, or you could make and give it as a gift to someone else.   This one lives by the side of my bed.  It is devoted to Jordan Almonds.  Hope you like it.

Step 1:

Supply list:
Clean bottle with lid
A short glass candlestick or something like it (Mine was a base for a cake plate, which I kept around once the plate part died.)
Some wood that could be used for a knob on top of the lid, ( I used a base ring, for use with old school clothes pins, the top was an empty “Squinkies” shell http://www.squinkies.com/.)
Black spray paint
E-6000 glue
Curling ribbon
That's really cute! I like that you painted the top black, it draws more attention to the candy and the jar.
Thanks for looking. I like the top the best too.
Cool, I love how you made the lid.
I was despirately looking for a piece of wood turning to make the knob. Didn't find what I wanted, so I went with what I had. And it worked. The black paint made all the difference. Thanks for looking.
