This project is so easy to make!  It’s basically 3 jars with lids on 3 candlesticks in various sizes. Such a versatile project and they can be filled with lots of goodies for any holiday or occasion.
Here’s my version I created for a customer.  I used 3 candlesticks from my crafting stash.  (You can also find inexpensive ones at discount stores like Ross and just spray paint them.  Or even unfinished wooden ones at the craft store.) I also used finials from Lowes, and glass jars with lids from Hobby Lobby.  I adhered all the pieces together with a tube of Liquid Nails.
Halloween ideas … fill with plastic spiders, candy, licorice sticks, candy corn, eyes, a crow on a nest of shredded paper, etc.Boo
Christmas ideas … fill with hot chocolate fixin’s (marshmallows, hot chocolate mix, peppermint pieces),  nuts/candy, jingle bells, cinnamon sticks, big fat peppermint sticks, ‘snow’ and bottle brush trees, small cardinal on a grapevine wreath ‘nest’, snow globes, snowmen, gum drops, ornaments, tinsel, cookie cutters, etc.
Valentine’s Day ideas … fill with red hots candy, Hershey’s kisses, red licorice bits, chocolates, etc.I Heart U
Easter ideas … fill with jelly beans, Peeps marshmallows, Easter grass, plastic eggs, birds, bunnies, seed packets, faux carrots, faux bluebonnets, etc.
July 4 … fill with lemonade fixin’s (lemonade mix, straws, drink umbrellas), silver tinsel, USA flags, red/white/blue ornaments, popcorn, faux sunflowers, stars, etc.USA
