These treat jars were inspired by some I made for The Centsible Life last fall using leftover Halloween candy.

Supplies needed to make scarecrow treat jars

  • 4oz canning jars
  • Goldfish® crackers
  • Paper baking cups – the narrower ones work best with the small canning jars
  • googly eyes
  • card stock – orange and black
  • glue stick and scissors

Instructions to make scarecrow treat jars

Place the paper baking cup on top of the jar and secure the lid over the top. This is why the narrower baking cups work better because the regular size will hang down too low.

Attach the googly eyes using a glue stick.

And then cut out a nose and mouth from the card stock and attach those using the glue stick too.

Note: the reason we use a glue stick is that it’s easier for the recipient to remove these from the jar later and re-use the jar for something else.

Goldfish crackers are a great snack that kids love to eat and play with so they will love these little jars as a gift, or place setting at the Thanksgiving table. And Goldfish seasonal crackers add some extra fun around the holidays with a fun look for a snack your children already love.

Do you have any Halloween candy left? We still do, although I have no idea how. If you get loads of little bags of Whoppers or other chocolate-covered candies like those, then this is a fun way to store them and gift them.
