I am so honored to be sponsored (and inspired!) by SweetWorks Inc. today for these recycled jar Valentine candy bowls! This is a super easy upcycle you can do in literally minutes.  It adds a unique and clever twist to your Valentine’s Day spread.

Here’s what I used:

  • Clean baby food jar
  • Clean small jelly jar
  • Pink ribbon
  • Three dollar bin heart shaped plastic bowls
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • SweetWorks candies

I found these three plastic bowls in the dollar bins at Target the other day and I couldn’t pass them up.  I wanted to add height to them because I think it looks nicer when you display them.  At first, I was thinking of looking for thrift store candle holders, but I had these jars and had an idea.

You can by individual bags of Sixlets in many different colors.  I thought it’d be fun to make the stands multifunctional.  They would display the pretty pink color of these candy coated chocolate candies, AND have a candy bowl on top. SO, I filled the jars and put the lids back on top.

I wanted to cover the lids, so I added a pink ribbon around them.  Next, I hot glued the candy dish on top.  This way, you can still eat the candy inside of the jar.

Note: To open the jar, you have to twist from the lid and not the bowl.

There you have it! A fun and easy multifunctional Valentine candy display!  Pictured here are the silver, pink, and read, foil chocolate hearts and the pink candy coated Sixlets.
