A couple of weeks ago I guest posted over at See Vanessa Craft and today I get to bring home another fun Halloween idea. This DIY treat jar is quick to make, uses things you probably already have around the house (except maybe the knob), and could be easily adapted to any time of the year.


Good morning! I’m Lisa Mabey from Mabey She Made It, a DIYcraft, and sewing blog. I’m so excited to be here today sharing a fun Halloween project with you.

I don’t now what it is about Halloween, but I have a VERY  narrow aesthetic for decor. I don’t like scary; I don’t like macabre. I don’t like cartoony; I don’t like cutesy. I like what I’ll call Romantic. This made-up-style a bit classy, mostly black and white, and a bit untraditional (i.e. it could easily pass as not-Halloween decor). With candy corn thrown in because I love it.

And with that disclaimer, I introduce my Halloween DIY Treat Jar.

It’s really easy and simple, and yet the result looks quite refined–it doesn’t even need to qualify as Halloween decor!

You’ll Need:

Let’s Get Started:

  1. Clean and take the label off your jar. If your jar has some glue residue on it, try a little peanut butter on it and rub it in until the oil breaks down the adhesive–then wash it off!
  2. Spray your jar lid using your spray paint, and set it aside to dry.
  3. Adhere the lace to the jar using the double-sided adhesive. Halloween Treat Jar | Mabey She Made It | #halloween #halloweendecor #decor #masonjar #candycorn
  4. Tie the ribbon around the jar, and place a little adhesive behind the knot to keep everything in place. Trim your ribbon as desired. Halloween Treat Jar | Mabey She Made It | #halloween #halloweendecor #decor #masonjar #candycorn
  5. Drill a hole in (or pound a nail through) the middle of the lid then screw the crystal knob into place. Halloween Treat Jar | Mabey She Made It | #halloween #halloweendecor #decor #masonjar #candycorn
  6. Fill it with treats! Halloween Treat Jar | Mabey She Made It | #halloween #halloweendecor #decor #masonjar #candycorn

It’s something that I can call Halloween decor, but really I’ll use it year round just because I like it. You could even put it on a little pedestal and it would look so elegant with white butter mints in it…Okay now I need white butter mints…

I agree with you – I am a great fan of the “romantic” look of Halloween.
