Gold Candy Treat Jars
This post contains affiliate links and I received compensation for this post. Whether for Saint Patrick’s Day treats or a pirate birthday party favor, gold candy treat jars are a great way to create some fun. They are so easy peasy to make thanks to the Cricut Joy and vinyl that doesn’t require a mat! There are so many wonderful things about the Cricut Joy and to be honest, I am having a blast using it all over my house. It is SO portable and easy because it hooks up to Design Space on my PHONE! Okay, let’s get too making.
Supplies to Make Gold Candy Treat Jars
- Cricut Joy
- Permanent Vinyl (White or Gold) for Cricut Joy
- Weeding Tool (Cricut of Course)
- Glass Jar
- Gold Covered Chocolate Candy
- Ribbon or Fabric in Rainbow Colors
If you plan to add any card stock embellishments, you will also need the mat for the Cricut Joy.
Directions to Make Gold Candy Treat Jars
Start by spelling out GOLD in Cricut Design Space. There are tons of great fonts to choose from. I used one of the DJ fonts that comes with the Cricut Access Standard Monthly Subscription. The BEST part (well one of them) about the Cricut Joy is that you can work it totally from you phone or tablet.
Once you have your word spelled and sized, use the matless vinyl and cut it out.
Once it is cut out, use a weeding tool to remove the insides of the letters.
Apply the vinyl letters to a jar.
To create a shamrock for the top of the jar, use a scrap of decorative green paper AND the adorable tiny mat made just for the Cricut Joy. There are shamrocks RIGHT in Design Space.
Fill the jar will gold candies and put the lid on. Using twine and ribbons, create a darling bow around the top of the jar.
Here is a fun St. Patrick’s Day printable word search puzzle that you can download and do while you eat the candy!
Cheers to the Cricut Joy,
