5 Little Monsters: Christmas Candy Bottles

Christmas Candy Bottles

As I was thinking about Christmas craft projects and ideas a couple of weeks ago I sat down and looked through some of my craft supplies to get some inspiration Sometimes looking through materials and supplies will spark an idea. It is one of my favorite ways to get project inspiration. Sometimes it will be a specific item that will give me an idea, sometimes the color of something, a material, or a combination of those. Sometimes when I feel like I have no creative ideas I like to go wander through a craft store and I am bound to find inspiration as I walk through the aisles.



In this case I came across some little glass milk bottles I had filled with candy for Valentine's Day. I still had several bottles left over from that project (I think they came in a box of 12). I thought, why not do the same thing but for Christmas?


So I bought a few different bags of Christmas candies that I thought would look cute in glass jars and filled up the bottles. I chose M&M's, Cadbury Chocolate Balls, and Hershey's Kisses. You could use any smallish candy that would fit well in the jar, and I wanted some that would look Christmasy too, so I chose candies that were red and green.



Then I created a few small designs that I could cut out of vinyl and stick on the front of the bottles. I also added a circle of vinyl to the lids to add a little bit more color.


The 3 designs I came up with are:


Merry Christmas, with a little Christmas tree, and a green lid.


Joy to the World, with a gold star, and a white lid with a gold star there as well.


And, Merry & Bright with some red accents and a red lid.
