Let’s Turn Dessert Toppings Into Art!

I’m sure we’ve all seen those cute, decorative glass jars and bottles that can be found in kitchens and restaurants that look like this….

Well, it’s time to switch things up!!!

Here’s what you’ll need:

*Glass jar or bottle of any size.

*Enough sweet goodness to fill it up with like sprinkles, brown sugar, chocolate chips, crushed oreos, candy, etc., etc., etc.

*Optional-get some puffy paint and fake sprinkles to decorate your jar or bottle after it’s been glued shut. Otherwise, grab whatever you want to decorate the lid with and make it less boring.

*Oh, yeah and glue 😉

Let’s get started!

By the way, this step by step process will not contain pictures for every step because it’ll just be me typing, “Step 1, pour in your first topping….Step 2, pour in your second topping.” LOL. I won’t do that to you today so let’s just see the finished product and I’ll give you some tips…

I have a few of these three ounce jars in my craft stash that I want to put to good use and this is what I plan to do with every one. Sprinkles and brown sugar are all I have around at the moment but just imagine what you can do with the toppings and candy you choose in the jar or bottle you choose!

You can even gift one to a friend or family member that’s not glued shut and filled with their favorite candy all stacked in a decorative way just before they eat it all ;-).

The biggest tip I have is just make sure each layer is exactly how you want it before moving onto the next. That way you don’t have to worry about pouring that shit out and starting over again. Haha.

Decorate the lid how ever you want but I love the frosting and sprinkles look so that’s where the puffy paints come into play. Make it look like frosting dripping down over the lid. Get your FAKE sprinkles from Amazon or Ebay or Etsy and sprinkle them on top and let it dry.

You can obviously use the fake sprinkles inside the jar as well but that’s no fun, is it? go for the real deal. Real ones will bleed onto the paint, by the way…trust me, I’ve tried it. So fake sprinkles outside and real sprinkles inside, por favor ;-).

So that includes this quick tutorial of something super fun you can do with your friends and family. Or just do it alone so that everyone around you thinks you’re a badass who is amazingly talented ;-).

You know, maybe I’ll make a bunch to sell and market them as a weight loss tool with the following instructions: “When you’re feeling like you want to reach for that extra cookie or cupcake you don’t need, just stare hard at this jar of sweets while drinking a glass of water. You’re welcome.” Hahaha.

My goofy-ness aside, thank you all for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this one. I know I can’t wait to make more! Bye!….
