Painted Glass Pumpkin Candy Jar

I found this Pumpkin Candy Jar at the Thrift Store this morning.
 
It was marked  $1.00 and I just could NOT pass it up.

 
 
 
These jars will show up from time to time. They are made by Anchor Hocking and they
 
are still available on their website. Target has these on line.
 
I found the jars on this site for a good price in case you are interested.
 
 
 
I love this jar as is but I really love the silver pumpkins from the
 
POTTERY BARN
 

 Pottery Barn Catalog October 2018
 
 
 
That's the look I'm going for-
 
 
I am going to show you how to make two different versions.
 
 
 One will be painted on the inside only, beautiful shine, looks like Mercury glass, 
 
perfect for Fairy Lights or faux candles
 
but NOT food safe.
 
The other will be painted on the outside only, and can be used for candy
 
 
 
 
We will need a Jar-
 
Plastic bag, painters or masking tape

 
 
Mirror or silver spray paint


 This paint is awesome and it's made for glass.

 
 To paint the outside, cover inside with bag and tape the open edge.
 
 
After paint is dry, flip jar over to paint the bottom.
 

Let dry thoroughly 




 
To paint the inside only, wrap bag around outside of jar and tape the edge.
 
Paint just the underside of the lid.

 
Let dry thoroughly
 
 

 
Here is a full shot of the mantle



 
 
Here are both pumpkins, on the left painted inside
 
on the right painted outside.





 
 The small glass pumpkins are from the Dollar Tree

 
This pumpkin was painted on the inside
and filled with Fairy Lights

 


 
 
 
This pumpkin was painted on the outside
and has battery powered votive candles inside.



 


 
Here are the Fairy Lights
 
 
These lights came from Target's After- Christmas sale at 90%off .... and ......

 
 
The CANDY came from Dollar tree
 
Here is the easiest recipe ever-
 



 
''PAYDAY'' CANDY HACK
 
1 Bag approx.  8  oz.  CANDY CORN
 
1 Jar  approx.  8 oz. DRY ROASTED SALTED PEANUTS
 
MIX!

If you love salty sweet YUM!

It tastes a lot like a PAYDAY candy bar.




It's official.... FALL IS HERE!



Thank you for spending some time with me today.

I hope you have a wonderful week.
