Instructions

  1. Print and Cut Labels: Start by printing out the labels from our provided template. These circular labels are designed for ease of use and can be printed on cardstock for added durability. Once printed, carefully cut out each label using scissors.
  2. Fill the Jars: Take your chosen mason jars and fill them with the mini eggs or other pastel Easter candy. You can opt for a single color or mix and match for a vibrant display of Easter hues.
  3. Apply the Labels: Once the jars are filled, it’s time to add the labels. Place the thin, flat part of the lid on top of the jar. Then place the label on the lid and secure it in place by screwing on the ring.
  4. Secure with Ribbon: To add an extra flourish, tie a ribbon around the lid of each jar. Choose a ribbon that complements the colors of the mini eggs for a coordinated look.

That’s all there is to it! Whether you’re giving these cute DIY candy jars to friends, family, or colleagues, these handmade creations are sure to bring joy to anyone who receives them.

Tips & Tricks For your Easter Candy Jar Gifts

  1. Get Creative with Labels: If you’re feeling creative, you can experiment with making your own labels using different fonts, colors, and designs to match the recipient’s personality or the theme of your Easter celebration.
  2. Try Different Candy: If you don’t like mini chocolate eggs or can’t find them in stores near you, you’ve still got plenty of other options. Colorful jelly beans, Easter M&Ms, pastel-wrapped Hershey Kisses or any other favorite Easter candies will work as great.
  3. Layering for Visual Impact: Create layers of candy in the jars for a visually striking effect. Start with a base layer of one color and add contrasting colors on top for a vibrant finish.
  4. Personalize with Ribbons: Choose ribbons in different textures and patterns to add variety to your gift presentation. Curling ribbon or satin ribbon can add a touch of elegance, while burlap or twine can lend a rustic charm.
  5. Consider Dietary Preferences: If you’re gifting these jars to people with dietary restrictions, such as allergies or preferences for vegan or gluten-free treats, be sure to select candy that accommodates their needs.
  6. Add Embellishments: For even more Easter fun, add some embellishments such as Easter-themed charms, stickers, or decorative tags alongside the ribbon.
  7. Include A Recipe: For a personal touch, consider adding a small recipe card inside the jar. If you like this idea, but need a recipe, check out these carrot cake cupcakes, pastel Springtime cupcakes or Easter lamb cake.
  8. Customize Jar Sizes: Consider using jars of different sizes or shapes.
  9. Double As a Centerpiece: If you’re hosting Easter dinner, you could place the cute jars in the center of the table as a festive centerpiece. Your guests can grab one after dinner for a sweet treat or before leaving the get-together.
