Red apple painted mason jar gift

Share this post

It’s apple season.  I just love apples, their beautiful colors, delicious flavors and the amazing smells that come from the kitchen when I bake with them.  I am looking forward to my first honey crisp of the year very soon.  I love incorporating apples into my early fall decorations too. I currently have a bowl full of apples on my table and red accents on my mantle.  I thought it would be fun to create a simple apple jar gift using a mason jar and one of my favorite candies, M&M’s.  Who wouldn’t want to receive this red apple painted mason jar gift.

Create this red apple mason jar gift filled with candy. A perfect fall or school gift.

Here is what I used for this apple jar gift: Some of the links below are affiliate links.

I started by spray painting the jar scarlet red.  This chalky finish spray paint is so easy to work with.  I did 2 coats, about 20 minutes apart, and I ended up with a smooth matte finish that completely covered the jar.  This paint comes is a variety of colors and I highly recommend it if you want to avoid brush marks.

Then I sprayed the lid and pull a metallic gold.

To assemble the lid I used hot glue to attach the leaf then the pull on top.

I filled the jar with M&M’s, I am loving the dark chocolate right now but I’m also very excited for their new fall flavors like pecan pie!
