Hi! I’m excited to to be guest blogging here with you today on the Lil Luna blog.
Do you love these IKEA jars as much as I do?
I like to keep a few on hand because there so so many things to do with them.
Even though Halloween is still a couple of months away, I wanted to get a head start on some of my Halloween crafting and thought I’d share one of my ideas with you here today.I decided that I wanted to turn the jars into pumpkins and fill them this candy. A group of these would make a great centerpiece or they could be given out to friends, teachers or neighbors.

I started off the project with this Pumpkinhead font from Dafont.com. I used my Silhouette to cut out a few of my favorite faces from the font from vinyl. Next, I just stuck the vinyl faces onto the jars.

If you don’t have a die cutting machine, you could just cut the faces from paper and glue to the jars.

Then you just fill the jars with candy and finish off with a ribbon around the top. You could fill the bottom of the jar with tissue paper or shreaded paper if you don’t want to fill the entire jar with candy. Very fast and easy!

If you are looking for a healthy trade off for the candy, you could give this a try…


Thanks to Kristyn, I discovered an amazing new candy store, Sweeties Candy, only 10 minutes from my house. I walked around the candy store and found so many different orange types of candy. These would all be great to use to fill up pumpkin jars.

Here’s a look at some of the orange goodies I found at the candy shop. Yes, one of the candies is a REAL scorpion inside of hard candy!

Thanks for letting me share with you today!
