Candy Corn Milk Bottles and Jars

By | October 26, 2014

Halloween is all about the candy, right?  I’m in love with candy corn, especially.  Not so much the candy, but I love the look. The three colors are bright, cheerful, and Fall-ish. And that makes these Painted Candy Corn Milk Bottles perfection!

I was inspired by these cute candy corn mason jars at Mason Jar Love. When I found these milk bottles at Michale’s, I knew I had to have them. At the time when I bought them I had no idea what I was going to use them for, I just knew I had to have them…….like 20 of them.

I bought them on sale and they were only $1 each!  I couldn’t pass that up!

Candy Corn Milk Bottles

Are you ready to see how to make them?

SUPPLIES

Milk bottles or any other jars you prefer

White acrylic paint

Orange and yellow enamel gloss paint

Ribbon and flowers

Step-by-Step Tutorial

first steps

 1.

Make sure your jars are clean and completely dry

2.

Pour in white acrylic paint inside the jars.  Turning the jar so that the paint covers all the sides.  Then set the jars upside down to dry.  this will take a few hours.

final steps3.

You will then paint 3/4 of the jar with yellow paint. I gave it about 4-5 coats.

I recommend placing tape at your stopping point so you will get a nice even edge afterwards.

4. 

After the yellow paint has completely dried, pour orange paint in a larger jar or cup. Fill it about 1/4 inch full.  Then dip the bottom of the jar in the larger cup of paint to coat the bottom of the jar.

5. 

Place them on a wire rack to dry.
