Turn a Dollar Store Jar into a Personalized Candy Dish


Dollar Store jar turned Candy Dish
I am always finding really cool jars and containers in the dollar store. They are inexpensive and fun, but I who doesn't want to turn them into something FABULOUS? Take that Dollar Store jar and turn it into a personalized Candy Dish using etchall® etching creme, Joy® Iron on Letters, and Plaid Multi Surface Paints.

Because this is a curved surface it requires a little more prep before applying the etching creme. Once the stencil is applied I used masking tape to build a "dam" around the area to be etched to contain any creme that migrated off the top.

 Applying etching creme to a curved surface

Once you have your dam in place, apply the etching creme and set your timer for 15 minutes. Remove the creme and return to the jar (it's re-usable!) and rinse the jar under cold running water. Leave the stencil in place, and dry with paper towels.


Plaid Multi Surface Paints are perfect for etched surfaces
I used cheap make up sponges to apply paint, starting from the outside edge and working my way to the center. Plaid Multi Surface Paints are AMAZING - they dried very quickly, so keep that in mind.  I used a very tiny paintbrush to add a thin line right next to the stencil. Remove the stencil while the paint is still wet, set aside to dry.

  1. I love how the storage container now looks more fun and attractive which is perfect for children. This storage container project would also be perfect for a fun activity with children who are looking for a fun activity during the holidays or even just the weekends.
