I adore the colors of these treat jars. I get a retro vibe from the colors used here. I agree with Delphine Bryant, there could have been more detailed directions for this project. For some, the stretch of the imagination may be enough.

Love the idea but the directions are really sparse.

gave me ideas..take small flower glass vases and glue onto glass or painted candle holders.

What a great idea to decorate some jars to make them look nicer than just plain jars and I can see them used in so many different rooms for different things. You can decorate some for a babys room and put in pins, cotton balls, q-tips etc..,a sewing room with supplies a kitchen and then the candies the liist goes on. A great tutorial on how to do them and so easy to do. Thanks.

Perfect jars for kiddie parties! I love that these jars come in different sizes. You can use them at home or for parties.

I love The Dreamiest Treat Jars. They are adorable and would look really cute on a dining room table, a change from the flower arrangement. I love spring flowers, so I think I'll make a smaller arrangement to work with the jars when I get them made!

What a very cute idea. I have seen these jars for sale but never know what I could do with them. This is just the ticket. I would like to get the smaller ones to put into my bath room. Then put the words cotton swab, puffs, etc. on them. I can paint them to match the colors in there. Thank you so much for sharing this great idea.

#bestideaever-The best idea I can give you is make sure that when you give us a recipe that it can tweeted or googled or facebook and etc.. sometimes it only be printed and everyone doesn't have one.
