How cute are these?! We're calling them candy terrariums, and we're giving them out as gifts this Valentine's Day! You can fill them with candy and small treats to personalize them for each of your friends. Here's how you make them…

You'll need…
16oz jars
plastic animals
star picks
heart candle picks
– assorted candies
– spray paint 

Here's how…
1. Spray paint lids of jars. We chose to do an assortment of colors. Let dry for 30 minutes.
2. Fill jar about 1/4 of the way with mixed candy.
3. Trim down the picks on both the stars and the hearts to fit the height you'd like it to stand in the jar.
4. Put picks and animal in the jar on top of the candy (if you have any gummy candies, it helps to stick the picks in the gummy to stand them up.
5. Add the lid!

  1. Hello! These are adorable! When I click the link for the jars, it goes to a boot from Anthro (which are also adorable!). Can you provide the source for the jars? Thank you.
