You can fill the jar with the candy from the packet for a quick gift.

What you need

Candy bag wrapper
Glass Jar
Oven gloves
Craft Glue


Start by taking your candy wrapper and placing it onto a oven tray. Some wrappers shrink better than others but it will still look great placed onto the lid.

Place the tray into a hot oven. The temperature does not matter as long as you watch the oven at all times. Make sure to shrink your wrappers in a well ventilated room.

Watch your wrapper carefully to make sure it does not shrink too small.

Once it begins to distort take it out of the oven and allow it to cool slightly.

Using the oven mitts mold the warm wrapper around the lid of the jar and allow it to cool in place.

You can secure the wrapper with glue and finish off the lid with a piece of ribbon.
