DIY Candy Jars with Chalk Labels

Turn a simple glass Mason Jar into a candy jar with a Chalkboard label. Perfect for parties and table centerpieces.
 
I love Mason Jars!  I think they are so cute and so simple.
 
I know I am not the first person to use mason jars as candy jars or even to put labels on the front of them.  But I think they turned out so cute so I had to share!

 I made these cute jars for my Bunco night when I also made Gift Card Boxes for my prizes.  You can see those here.
 
There are 3 tables and each table needs their own little jar of treats.
 
This is how I made them.
 
I had some scraps of Chalkboard vinyl left over from another project and used my Decorative Label Punch to get the 3 shapes.

The white one is the same as the others, I just didn’t remove the transfer paper before I punched it.  I wanted to see if it would make a difference.  It didn’t.  The shapes are small enough that you don’t need the transfer paper to transfer the vinyl.
 
I took off the paper backing and stuck it to my jar making sure it was straight.

My daughter helped me write on the labels.  She thought that was pretty cool!

I found some scraps of pom pom trim ribbon and tied them around the bottom lip of the jar.
