DIY Candy Jars from My Covered Bridge {Homemade in December}

Welcome to the second day of decor week!! Holiday crafts are so fun, especially ones that can be re-purposed after the celebrating is done!!!

Kristen has a wonderful one to share with us today!!


Hi!  I’m Kristen from My Covered Bridge!  I’m really excited to be guest posting today at Delicate Construction.  I want to thank Michelle for having me!  I’m sort of new to this blogging world, so let me introduce myself.  I’m a happily married stay-at-home mom of four.  My husband, Craig, and I are completely remodeling and decorating a house we bought six years ago.  I love diving into these projects – and now I love sharing them on my blog! 
I love to find inexpensive ways to decorate for the holidays and I want to share a couple of those projects here.  
I started out with a hurricane and a candlestick from the dollar store – 
I glued the hurricane on top of the candlestick using E-6000 adhesive.  Then I taped off a few stripes with painter’s tape – 
I gave it a few coats of white spray paint and filled with red filler (red M&M’s would probably work better though…)-
Here’s another spin on that project – a Pedestal Candy Bowl
That’s right – everything came from the dollar store-
I spray painted the candlestick with Rustoleum chrome spray paint- 
And glued the votive holder on top with E-6000 adhesive.  So Easy.
And it looks great with my larger DIY Pedestal Bowl – 
I hope you stop by My Covered Bridge to see all of my holiday (and non-holiday) projects!  And thank you again, Michelle, for having me over here today!  It’s been a lot of fun!
Make sure you go check out the awesome posts today over at my co-hosts’ blogs!!
