DIY Halloween Gifts in a Jar
We love chocolate in our home! In fact, I don’t think we are ever without chocolate (*raises my hand* I, Shannon Gosney, love chocolate and have a constant stash in our home). While my family and I love to eat chocolate, I also find that chocolate makes great gifts. So I wanted to come up with an easy and fun craft for both kids and parents to make and give to others. I wanted a gift idea that was easy, budget-friendly and cute. I thought the Do-It-Yourself Halloween Gift in a Jar would be perfect!
As part of this project, I received a large box of Hershey’s candies. Oh my gosh, I was so excited to break open the box! I wasn’t the only one though. As soon as my boys noticed it, they immediately began asking for some to eat – ha ha! Ok, yes, I definitely did give them some and of course had a few myself. Their favorites were the Orange-Colored Kit Kat Candy Bars, the Hershey Snack Size Candy Bars, the Pumpkin-Shaped York Peppermint Patties and the Jolly Rancher Caramel Apple Lollipops.
Aside from snacking on these delicious Hershey’s candy items, it was time to create my DIY Halloween Gift in a Jar. And of course I had to have a bowl of candy on the side to snack on! Here are the items you need to create your own DIY Halloween Gift in a Jar.
DIY HALLOWEEN GIFTS IN A JAR

1 – Remove the lid (disc and ring) and fill the jar with multi-colored candies.
2 – Place the disc on top of the jar.
3 – Cut a square shape of a Halloween napkin (or fabric) and place over the disc.
4 – Thread the ring on over the napkin.
5 – If you are making this gift with kids, consider letting them decorate with the Halloween foam stickers.
6 – You can add a tag or special note to the jar.
