What You Will Need


  • Fill the mason jar with the candy of your choice.
  • Prefill the feeder with candy, then add remaining candy to the jar until full.
  • Quickly, tilt the jar and feeder toward each other to attach.
  • Screw jar on to feeder tightly.


You can also add decorations to your jar with ribbon, paint, stickers, and more.
If you attach the empty feeder to the jar directly, then flip it over, the jar will look a little empty as the candy filters down into the feeder. I recommend pre-filling the feeder, then tilting the jar and the feeder together (quickly) so your jar stays relatively full and minimal candy spills.
Jelly beans are a great option, but small candies like M&Ms, Skittles, Hershey Kisses, Reese’s Pieces, and other small candies will work perfectly, too.
