Too Early?

I have been dying to send a Halloween treat to my son's teacher this year. Some people might say "there's still a month left until it's even October!" I say "bring on the black and orange!" I don't think it's ever too early to start decorating for Fall and making Halloween treats.
I found these containers at the dollar store. I love them because they have the clip on the side to make things air tight! I had some ribbon laying around in my craft room, and I own a vinyl lettering cutter, so I knew this project would be easy! :)


Fill the jars with candy, add your ribbon, and lettering.


I love this one with the black polka dot ribbon and tulle!


Super easy and cute!
... and all for just $1!
