Mickey Mouse Candy Jar

This craft project combines two of my favorite things: Mickey Mouse and candy. I’ve made a candy jar before, but this one was much more fun because my family and I are huge Disney fans, and we are planning on taking a trip to Disney World next summer.

Here’s a list of supplies I used to create this candy jar:

    • Red and black acrylic paint
    • Candy
    • Glass bowl
    • 6″ Clay flower pot and lid
    • Mickey Mouse figurine
    • Elmer’s® Ultra Stix-All Adhesive
    • Mod Podge

I started off by painting the flower pot red and the lid black. I applied three coats of paint to get the right color. After the paint was dry, I sealed the pot and lid with Mod Podge to make sure the paint didn’t chip.

When the Mod Podge dried, I applied the Elmer’s glue to the bottom of the flower pot then added the glass bowl. I also glued the figurine on top of the lid.

The instructions on the glue stated to wait 24 hours before handling the project, and that maximum strength will develop in 72 hours.

Here is the finished product:

I loved making this candy jar. It was a big hit with my family. I was especially happy with how inexpensive the supplies were. I was able to find everything at dollar stores for a total of about $10. I also enjoyed using the Elmer’s glue because it wasn’t runny and didn’t have any of the fumes that are so common with glass glues.

 

I hope you all enjoyed reading about my new candy jar. Feel free to leave comments and share with others!
