Annabel’s Pre-K teachers are really amazing. Their personalities are so perfect for a chatty kid like Annabel – they’re great at encouragement and discipline without making the kids feel like they’re being singled out. They also went above and beyond this month, taking care of an unexpected problem in a way that made me so grateful that my daughter is in their class. I wanted to give them each a little token of my appreciation, so I put together these pumpkin candy jars. SO easy to make, the hardest part is not eating the candy you put inside!
Pint Mason jars
Black paint pen
Start by painting the outside of clean mason jars. I covered the jars with a layer, waited until it was dry, and then painted on another layer.
Next, paint the mason jar lid and ring. These also both needed two coats of paint.
Paint the cork.
Put hot glue on the bottom of the cork…
..and press it firmly onto the lid of the mason jar.
I drew a face on each jar, but you could also leave them plain and use them for Thanksgiving gifts!
Fill up the jar with the treat of your choice!
Annabel and I wrote her name on the bottom, and we’ll attach an appreciation note to the ribbon I tied around the neck of the jar.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
