I did last year during Christmas time for a little extra spending cash and made close to $300 just for making a few candy jars.

1 mom liked this

     Those two I made for Christmas time


Then I also made a few of these mini ones for Halloween and they sold well too.

Thanksss! I didn't think they'd be a hit but everyone wanted one at the last minute, so I was a hard working little elf in my shop 2 weeks before Xmas lol

Those are so cute! How do you sell them (like, online market like Etsy, craft fairs, storefront, etc)?

Thankkksss! 

I *had* a shop open on Etsy and sold a few on there. But, a lot went to friends of friends, that either had kids (so they bought them as teacher's gifts) or people that bought them for their parents/grandparents.

I might try doing it again this year. The twins' birthday falls in December right before Xmas so a bit of extra money would be totally awesome!

Ah, ok. Well good luck! That must be tough for you guys to have TWO birthdays so close to a major gifting holiday!
