Welcome to part 2 of the Spring Thyme Recipes & Style Blog Hop hosted by my friend Tamyra at Positively Southern. If you’re coming over from Swirls of Flavor, welcome! I know you enjoyed Gwynn’s post as much as I did. Along with the other participating bloggers, we’re bringing you more spring and Easter inspiration today. I’ve listed all of the bloggers at the end of the post so make sure to stop by each blog and see what everyone is sharing.
Today I’ve got a fun and simple Easter gift idea for you.
One of the things you might not know about me is that I like to take the road less traveled. And when it comes to creative projects, I like to put my own twist on things. Take for instant Easter baskets. This year when it came time to make Easter baskets I wanted them to be unique. An ordinary woven Easter basket wasn’t going to cut it. This year I decided to create Easter Candy Jars instead of a traditional basket!
Aren’t these the cutest candy jars ever? And boy are the easy to make.
Once the idea of Easter jars struck me, I headed to Hobby Lobby for glass jars. There were a lot of styles to choose from but these jars with a rope handle caught my eye. The jars come in three sizes and with my 40% off coupon the largest jar was less than $7.
sale alert: next week all the jars will be 50% off.
I filled each jar with Easter grass, a chocolate bunny and candy. And once that was done I tied a pretty ribbon on the handle.
Just think of all the ways you can customize an Easter Candy Jar by using different candies, ribbons and grass. And once the holiday is over the gift recipient can use the jar to hold a candle, pencils or whatever they want. #twogiftsinone
Part of the fun in creating unique gifts is giving them out. I can’t wait to deliver my Easter jars to friends and family so they can enjoy their special treat.
