A few weeks ago I found a little meme that totally describes me when I’m hungry.  It went a little something like this, “I’m sorry for what I said when I was hungry.”  Yes, I admit it.  I tend to get a little grumpy when I’m hungry, especially if there is absolutely nothing to snack on in the house.  (Thank you, dear hubby!).

SNICKERS® - DIY Fall Candy Jar

So I decided to take back my snack by making a quick and easy DIY Fall Mosaic Candy Jar. It’s the perfect place to hide store my SNICKERS® bars.  I figured if I camouflaged my candy jar with a fall mosaic pattern, I could fool the rest of the family into thinking I had simply pulled out some more fall decor.

It’s so easy (and cheap) to make my DIY Fall Mosaic Candy Jar. Feel free to personalize it by using your favorite colors, shapes, etc.  You will need:

  • a decoupage medium such as a glass jar or vase
  • small paintbrush
  • tissue paper (You can find everything you need at your local Walmart store.)

Fall Mosaic Candy Jar

Cut the tissue paper into little squares, triangles, or whatever shape your little heart desires.  They don’t have to be perfect.

Use a small paintbrush and work with a small section at a time. Brush a thin layer of decoupage medium onto the vase/jar. Add tissue paper squares.

Once the surface is covered with tissue paper squares, carefully brush another layer of decoupage medium over the entire surface of the vase.  Let dry.

These DIY Mosaic Candy Jars can be used to hold candy or fall flowers – fresh or faux.

Ingredients

  • 1 glass vase or jar
  • Decoupage medium (like Mod Podge)
  • Orange, yellow and red tissue paper
  • Small paintbrush

Instructions

  1. Using scissors, cut the tissue paper into squares or rectangles.
  2. Brush a thin layer of Mod Podge over a section of the jar.
  3. Arrange the squares of tissue paper in whatever pattern you desire. Repeat until the jar is covered.
  4. Once the jar is covered with tissue paper squares, carefully brush another layer of Mod Podge over the entire jar, covering the leaves.
  5. Let dry and fill with SNICKERS®!

Head to Walmart

After my jar was completed, I stopped by Walmart to buy some full sized SNICKERS® to fill my jar.  The full sized bars are located up front near the registers.   I admit I sorta got carried away reading all the words on the back of the SNICKERS® bar wrappers.SNICKERS

I love the Drama Mama saying on the SNICKERS bar below!

Of course, once I read all the different words, I had to take the short quiz to find out who I am when I’m hungry.  (I’m a quiz fanatic!)

After taking the fun quiz, I found out I’m a princess when I’m hungry.  And I don’t think that’s meant as a compliment.  You can take the quiz right now, right here!

So, who are you when you’re hungry?

I just got to try that activity with my kid and her friends who come over here once a week! 🙂 I’m going to try other colors too! Hoping my husband will buy me some mod podge! Thanks for the ‘recipe’, rating it 5 stars! 😉 Oh btw, would love to have those Snickers too while doing the craft. 😛

I figured I would share in “recipe” format in case anyone needed to print it off to take to the store with them. 🙂 It really is a fun project. I used large circles for a couple of tall vases for the mantle, but that’s another post. 🙂

Those a really cute. I wonder if i can pull one over on my teens in thinking their is no candy stashed away. Any clues in how to hide their phones in plain view when they are grounded?

This craft is so cute. And I love the little quote at the top. I can relate to being hungry and having little patience.

Looks like it is a nice easy to make craft. The Snickers bars were the highlight of it! The glass jars can also be re-purposed as a pen holder.

Actually this gives me an idea for my bathroom, the set I bought I can’t find the right accesories for, so I may just borrow this idea and make the toothbrush holder and cup myself! Great share!

I guess I am a princess when I am hungry too! My friend and I have a warning system when we are out shopping or busy and lunch or dinner is further away than my hunger can handle so I feel you on the whole hangry issues. I love these DIY – it would be perfect to put on your desk at work and fill with nuts or little candies to munch on!

My daughter took the quiz and is a Princess, too. I guess it runs in my family. 🙂

I took the test and even though I can’t figure out how to say or spell it, something like crugeon or something. Anyways I don’t know it means, however, this project is something that I will try. Thanks for showing how its done.

Alli October 5, 2015 - 2:16 pm

That’s the one weird word in the test. I got princess and so did my daughter. I guess it runs in the family. I’m sure I’m not too demanding when I’m hungry. Wink!
