Create Fall Harvest Candy Jar

Now that we're getting to the hottest part of the summer, we're all about ready for a little bit of Fall.  This week's theme is "Create Fall".  While this is a specific stamp set in the Stampendous catalog.  I don't have this stamp, but I do have a way to create fall with different stamps, a stencil, and an old mayonnaise jar.  Check out the instructions to find out how.

Double Sided Mounting Paper
Scotch® Removable Tape by 3M®
Chameleon™ Markers (Royal Blue, Fawn, Bark, Seville Orange, Hot Cocoa, Bisque, Summer Sun, Warm Sunset)
Twine by May Arts
Sharp Scissors
5" Machine and Permanent Adhesive by May Arts
Empty Mayonnaise Jar
Handmade Hawaiian Soap

1)  Stamp on the paper

2)  Use Chameleon Pens to color image
3)  Cut around Stamp
4)  Send the label through the Xyron
5)  Adhere to jar
6)  Trace around the jar lid on the Double Sided Mounting Paper, so that you can get it close
7)  Cut out the circle
8)  Soap the back of the stencil 
9)  Adhere the double sided mounting paper behind one of the leaves
10)  Cover the areas you do not want to see
11)  Sprinkle gold and copper glitter over the stencil and push into the well created by the stencil.
12)  Use the stencil brush to brush off extra glitter
13)  Place the stencil upside down on a flat surface and carefully remove the Double Sided Mounting Paper from the stencil.
14)  Cover the paper with the Crystal Glitter
15)  Brush off the excess glitter with the stencil brush
16)  Use your scissors to trim the paper to fit inside the lid and adhere
17)  Use the wet glue to run a quick rim around the paper and cover with the Gold Halo Glitter'
18)  Attach the ribbon

Now that you have checked out my "Create Fall" project, check out the rest of this week's players:


  1. This is so cute! I especially love that you decorated the top of the jar, and not just the side. Love it!

  2. This is so adorable! What a great idea for a jar on the desk.

  3. What a great repurpose project! The Harvest Owl looks so nice on a jar and then the embossed lid is, wow! What a sweet candy jar, thank you for sharing!

  4. Cute project Laura! Of course, I just cleaned out my cupboard and got rid of my extra jars!
