This project has a Halloween theme, but I could see doing a snow man, or Santa/elf with the same idea. You use a 6″ terra cotta pot with the matching saucer, a candy bowl, a wooden knob and paint.
Paint the terra cotta pot and saucer. Attach the wooden knob to the saucer, in the center with glue – she recommends E6000, which is a good all round glue for this type of project. Put your bowl on the flipped over pot (she doesn’t say, but I would also attach the bowl to the pot with the glue to hold it in place). Add some decorations and ribbon and you have a very cute little candy jar.
She adds in Candy corn which gives it a super cute holiday look, because it is instantly recognizable.
