I want to bring more DIY and creative blogs to Passion Locked. I mean arts and crafts are truly a passion of mine. So today I will be showing you how to make these cute little candy jars from clay pots and fish bowls.

This is a great DIY projects for your home, office, and gifts. Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I think this candy jar will be great to decorate your home or office with, or give as a gift. I will be making three of these Candy Jars, all different colors.

Here’s what I am using:

  • 4.25 in Clay Pot and Saucer from Home Depot (0.78 each, pot and saucer sold separately)
  • Mini Fish Bowl from The Dollar Tree
  • Wooden Ball from Hobby Lobby ($2.99/ 4pk)
  • Acrylic Paint and Sponge brushes, for this project I am using 3 colors: CraftSmart Red, Anita’s Royal Fuchsia, and Folk Art 676E Inca Gold
  • For decorative supplies I am using Gold Adhesive Diamond Wrap and Red Diamond Wrap from The Dollar Tree
  • Loctite Super Glue
  • Parchment Paper

To start, paint the clay pot and saucer and wooden ball. I painted one coat, let it dry then painted a second coat.

Side Note: I used the parchment Paper to protect my table top from the paint.

Then, using Loctite super glue- glue the wooden ball to the top (center) of the saucer. As well as gluing the fish bowl to the (bottom) clay pot.

Now, it’s time to decorate. I am using the adhesive diamond wrap around the bottom of the gold candy jar and the red diamond wrap around the bottom of the red candy jar. You can personalize the candy jar with other decorative stickers or letters. I plan on actually personalizing these candy jars for special people- so I’m not going to post the finished product in this blog. But closer to Valentine’s Day I will post the finished look on my IG (@passionlocked) account.
