Jar top picture frame

Estimated Reading Time < 1 Minutes


  • 1 Mason jar with two-piece lid
  • scissors
  • ribbon
  • glue
  • your favourite candies


1. Trace around the outside edge of the jar lid’s flat disk onto the back of your picture with a pencil.

2. Cut out.

3. Decorate the screw cap with ribbon glued around the outside rim.

4. Turn the lid upside down, then drop your photo face down into the screw top rim. Plop the metal disk on top of the back of your picture. You can glue the photo in place if you like, but if you don’t glue it, you can easily update the photo.

5. Fill the jar with candies and screw on the lid. Makes a great-tasting frame!
