painted christmas canisters

These candy jars please me on several levels. One, I love the technique Jess from Mad in Crafts used to transform dollar store jars into bright and colorful holiday candy jars. Two, the cheeky labels on the jars almost trick you into breaking your diet and eating a piece or three of your favorite holiday treat. Of course we all need a set of these canisters for ourselves, but they will also make cute gifts for friends, teachers, neighbors, or anyone, and each one will cost you just about a dollar to make.
