Halloween Sweetie Jar/Favor

Halloween Favor
I’ve used a small storage jar from Poundworld for this idea.  There are four jars in a pack (that’s only 25p each) and it’s hard to tell them from ones they sell in IKEA.  The only problem is Poundworld don’t have them in very often, so when I see them I pounce and buy in bulk!

I’ve written on both sides of the tag which is made using my Stampin Up scalloped and plain circle punches.
Halloween Spider favor
The spider is part of a big bag of Halloween bits also from Poundworld.
Halloween Spider Sweet Candy favor
I’ve just added a pair of red flat backed gems to him for eyes.  The jar contains gourmet jelly beans from Aldi – 69p per bag.

I've seen these jars and wondered what could be done with them - now I know. Great idea Helen.

What fantastic idea! I have used these before for sweets etc for birthdays and it always goes down a treat (no pun intended!!). I love the way you have decorated these ones!! xx

These look fab! Have you thought about stamping your labels? I've designed a range of Halloween craft stamps to fit the Spellbinders dies but they can be used without or with other craft punches - www.craftysoandso.co.uk

I bought some IKEA jars last month and they are very similar to yours - gotta love a Poundland bargain :)
