Christmas Decorating on a Budget Idea #4

Christmas Decorating on a Budget Idea #4
Everyone loves candy, right?
Here’s a way to have candy out for your guests (or in my case my kids) and also have it look fun and festive. 
 My bestie drinks a Kombucha everyday and they come in these lovely glass bottles.  She buys by the case and saves me the bottles.
Another great bottle to reuse is the Starbucks cappuccino bottles.
 I sprayed the tops with a little red paint and filled them with candy.
The vinyl word JOY was made using my Silhouette machine, but you could easily buy stickers or paint a word on by hand using a paint pen.

  1. I love this! Yes…I would love some “joy” from you Dawn!!! Do you use your silhouette machine a lot? I hear you make mention of it frequently, so I am thinking you do.
    I may need one?? Love those bottles. My daughter drinks it too, so I will have her save me some bottles. But I have a wonderful glass jug that I got at the apple farm that my cider came in. I think that would be pretty with the letters too!!!

  2. Such a great idea. I’m afraid all the M&Ms would be gone as I would have eaten them by now. The peppermint not so much. I’d have to put candies I don’t like. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.

  3. Thanks for sharing! I have a stash of Starbuck’s bottles that would be perfect for this! It would give me great JOY to be picked by you!

  4. So cute and simple. Love all your decorating ideas. Keep them coming.

  5. Hi Dawn, yea, I would love the JOY letters! Such a cute idea, I love the red caps. Jean

  6. Dawn, they are darling. M&M’s would last about 5 minutes here:} Olive

  7. Adorable! I think the letters spelling joy make it perfect. Now I’m craving M&M’s!!! Cute project!

  8. I agree with the comment above it would make a cute teacher gift or to anybody for that matter. Looks like I’m to late for the JOY letters but do love them!

  9. These are absolutely adorable!! Your a creative genius 🙂

  10. Your little jars are just adorable, Dawn! I would love a set — still haven’t pulled the plug on getting one of those machines, & I don’t think Santa is too interested…..lol 🙁

  11. A very nice idea for displaying Christmas candy. Simple but very effective. I’d love to be entered into your draw to win a set of the letters.

  12. Great idea! Someone in my family would enJOY the letters.
