Mini makes: sweet gift jars with PlastiKote spray paint

Make a couple of these little sweet treat gift jars and keep in the cupboard for those unexpected visitors – they’ll be so impressed! It’s a great way of making a box of wrapped chocolates or sweets go further but look extra special.

1 - Red Place Setting Before

You’ll need a clean glass jar and lid, a small ornament (a little Christmas dec, cone or seed head for example), a can of PlastiKote spray paint (Fast Dry Enamel) and some sweets or chocolates.

Hot-glue the little ornament to the  lid and, when dry, apply the spray paint following instructions on the can. The paint will be completely dry in a few hours and it is recommended to leave for a 48-72 hours to harden off. Finally, fill with sweet treats or chocolates.

It’s a great way of recycling old jam jars and makes a few chocolates look extra-special. And the lucky recipient can use the storage jar when they’ve eaten all the sweets!


If you’ve a bit more time, why not make these little snowmen for the children? Spray a clean and empty juice bottle with white spray paint and allow to dry. Decorate with permanent marker to make the face and buttons, add a little felt scarf and fill with their favourite sweets.
