Spray paint lids & pumpkins

Start by spray painting your plastic candy jars lids & the small foam pumpkins. I used 3 different colors for a little variety, just be sure you have a matching lid & pumpkin set.

Hot Glue Pumpkins To Candy Jar Lids

Once they dry it’s time to attach the pumpkins to the top of the candy jar lid. Just a little dab of hot glue will do the trick (see what I did there).

You could also use colored glue sticks for a fun design addition to the lids!

Fill Jars With Fun Halloween Candy!

Now all that’s left is to fill the Halloween candy jar with their favorite trick or treat candy! My favorite fall candy is candy corn. I know I know it’s not a popular Halloween candy choice but I just really like them, & I am forcing Eli to like them too since he’s young & impressionable! Parenting at its finest yall!
