These ornaments are super easy to make. You could get them done and on the tree in less than an hour. This is an excellent activity to put an older child in charge of with the little people, so you can get some wrapping done. All mamas need to multitask sometimes not just large family mamas. Yes and amen.
Gather all your materials in one spot. Take the corks out of the bottles. Add a screw eye to the center of each cork. Fill the jars with the small candy of your choosing. You don’t have to use the same candy for each one. If it fits in the opening then you can fill the jar with it. M&M, Mike and Ike, and Skittles are perfect. Press the cork with the screw eye attached firmly back on the jar. Add a decorative ribbon then hang on the tree.Print
Looking for a fun way to add treats to your Christmas tree? These candy jar ornaments are sure to make your kids squeal.
