DIY: Desktop Candy Jar for The Manly Man (valentine craft)

Desktop Candy Jar for the Manly Man

I giggled so hard when I saw this mustache themed scrapbook paper at Michaels.  I really love "the rich uncle" design.  We designed this quick and easy craft for Plaid as a part of our Valentine's Gifts for Him series.  You can see all the designs here.  I know my dad would love this!  He always has a "stash" of Jelly Belly candy on his desk.

For the candy/peanut jar we first painted the jar with Folkart Enamles Glass paint and then we Mod Podged the paper to the outside of the jar.  To make the tattered painted edge we used painters tape torn in half.

Rubbing alcohol
Glass canister
Painter's tape
Spouncer paintbrush
FolkArt ® Enamels™ - Berry Wine, 2 oz.
Moustache themed scrapbook paper
Mod Podge ® Matte, 8 oz.
Foam paintbrush


1. Wipe the canister with rubbing alcohol to clean it. Peel a strip of blue painters tape. Tear the tape in half lengthwise. Tape off the top layer of the canister with the torn edge facing down. This will create a tattered edge.

2. Dip the spouncer brush into the berry wine paint, tap off the excess and tap all over the canister. Allow to dry. Follow the instructions on the bottle for setting the paint.

3. Trim the paper to fit the top of the canister and around the canister. Coat the back of the papers with Mod Podge, position onto the canister, smooth any air bubbles with your finger, wait 15 minutes and top coat with a layer of Mod Podge. Allow to Dry.

Thanks for stopping by!
