Trying to think out of the box is the idea for Inexpensive crafting so this project is no different check out your local dollar tree in your party supply section a

to make this cute candy jar or light up lantern let’s get started

Here you can see step by step

What do you need is:

black spray paint

East 6000

hot glue


mini candle wreath

candy dish

candle stick and any embellishments you like to use for your lantern also you might check out purchasing battery operated lights to put inside

Next you’ll take outside to a well ventilated area and spray paint the candy dish lid and the glass candle stick I used Home Depot‘s flat matte spray paint in black you could do any color of your choice

Just like this let dry for next step

Next I added some greens and berries to lid to just give that extra touch

I added the candle wreath around the bottom of the cans dish. It's super easy, just cut a small slit on the wreath and slide it around the bottom. To see me do it watch my YouTube video.

Once you slide the wreath over the container just add a bow to finish! Tada! This less the $3 DIY is done.

Here is the finished product.

Now you can add candy or the battery lights to light up any area or Christmas village
