Easter candy jars, it's a good thing!
We have never lost our of love going into the candy stores and seeing all the candy in the old fashion, vintage looking jars. All the bright colors and different shapes and textures are amazing! The jars are something themselves! We got our inspiration for our Easter candy jars from the craft mother herself, Martha Stewart. Just some colorful candy and some pretty jars, it's a good thing!
We love the jars Martha used in her Easter candy parade, unfortunately, we did not have any like that, nor were we going to go out an purchase any. Loving our apothecary jars, we decided they would work for us and give us a similar look, yet, be our own style. Any type of jar would work fine though.
Instead of using chocolate bunnies inside our jars, we opted for chocolate crosses and a chocolate lamb which to us, have a more significant Easter meaning. Use whatever type of candy happens to please you.
We used a variety of Easter candy to fill the bottoms of the jars. Edible Easter grass, jelly beans, malted speckled eggs and Lemon Head cream flower candy. We simply layered the grass, then the cross or lamb, and added in last the jelly beans or speckled eggs.
The white chocolate cross reminds us of our Savior's love for us.
Hello down their!
Followed by the dark chocolate cross. Which is a reminder of our sinful nature.
And here is the Lamb, reminding us that He took away the sins of the world.
Be inspired, get creative!
Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
At the presence of the God of Jacob,
Who turned the rock into a pool of water,
The flint into a fountain of waters.
