How to Make DIY Mini Candy Jar Party Favors
- Mini Candy Jars
- Acrylic Paint or Spray Paint
- Themed Jar Topper
- Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue or Super Glue
- Ribbon (optional)
Paint the lid of the jar to complement the jar topper/your party’s color scheme. Only paint the top and outside of the lids, not the part that will be inside the jar, to keep the lid food-safe. Let it dry.
Glue your topper to the painted lid. Depending on what your topper is made of, you can use hot glue or super glue for this.
Fill the jar with candy. Choose candy in the party color scheme, or a kind of candy that makes sense for the party theme/topper. You can also use a mix of candies as well.
Step 4 (Optional):
Tie a themed ribbon around the top of the mini candy jar for some extra flair!
That’s it! These favors are so simple to create but guests love how personalized they are for any specific party. Plus, once they finish all the candy inside, they can use the empty jars to hold any number of small trinkets.
