Hooked On You Candy Jar

DIY Gift for Dad: Hooked on You Candy Jar

Does Dad have a sweet tooth?  Then this gift is perfect for him!  Create a Hooked On You Candy Jar using his favorite candy.

Supplies:  Mason jar, gummy worms (peanut m&ms optional – to look like worms are in rocks), decoration for jar and chalkboard paint with paint brushes.


Step 1: Draw a rough outline on the jar so your child can keep the chalkboard paint inside the lines. Paint on the jar! Two coats were perfect.

Step 2: Fill jar with layers of worms and m&ms if you want to add those.

Step 3:  Add some ribbon for decoration. We used some of dad’s fishing items for decor too – bobber, hooks etc.

Step 4:  Write “We’re hooked on you” with chalk on the jar! Finished project and great Fathers Day gift!
