Choose different sweets in various textures or keep the sweets the same and just layer the colours


Materials
Glass jar
Selection of sweets in different colours (we used marshmallows, jelly babies and chocolate raisins)
Ribbon
Optional other items to decorate - sticky labels, fabric, stickers

Method
You can buy attractive glass jars which make a nice present in themselves. An empty jam jar, washed and with the label removed will work just as well.

Put the first layer of sweets in the jar and try to leave as few spaces as possible.

There are lots of ways you can now decorate the jar. You could simply tie a colourful ribbon around it or use use your imagination to add more detail.
Why not cut a square of scrap fabric and tie over the jar lid. You could even design your own labels or emboss a gift tag.
