Mini Chalk Painted Jars


Christmas is here and I made this cute jars back in July for gifts for my family.  They are made with small mason jars and chalk paint with pull knobs.  I purchased all the supplies from Walmart and the jars and lids I gave three coats of chalk paint allowing them to dry after each coat.  Sand the jars when all coats have dried for a distressed look.  Add a pull knob of your choice see Witches Jars. The jars are filled with wrapped candy.  Werther’s  Original Hard candy.
