DIY Easter Candy Jar Centerpieces

Easter decor can be hard to get right, but these Easter candy jars make fabulous centerpieces for your Easter table. Or just keep them around the home for a fun and festive reminder of spring!

It is lots of fun to decorate for seasons, holidays and other special occasions. These bright candy jars with nesting peeps are adorable for Easter and for spring! They make great centerpieces for Easter dinner, or you can give them as gifts, a sort of grown-up Easter basket! These are easy to make if you know the right tricks. Let me show you how.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Decorative glass jars
Your choice of candies
Easter grass

TIP: You can purchase these beautiful glass jars online or at home stores. Want them at a discount? Look at stores such as Home Goods and TJMaxx!

I love these ones from Amazon. They are so perfect!

Candy can be pricey, but the dollar store has great options for less. The flower gummies were there as well as malted milk balls and Easter Grass.

The gumballs are sold at some craft stores, candy stores and other retailers like Target. Most party stores have a huge assortment of candies in every color. Or, once again, you can head over to Amazon and search for Easter Candy.

Making them is SUPER simple. Just layer them in any order you like! Easy, eh?

Of course, it can be a little challenging though to get everything to stay put so I have a cool trick for you. Put a drinking glass upside down in the middle of the candy jars. This way you can build around the drinking glass which helps hold your layers in place and also lets you use less candy!

Top your jars off with a “nest” of Easter grass and a Peep! You can buy regular Easter grass or edible too!

There are so many combinations, it is unreal. You can do some that are all chocolate or some that are mostly fruity. You can use jelly beans or gumdrops. The options are truly endless.
