Pumpkin, pecans pumpkin Seasoned in glasses

This is one of those DIY food gifts that children can make! Try this pumpkin pecans seasoned in-painted pumpkin jars. Make them every year.

That doesn’t love receiving gifts of food? I’ll eat all day long, and this seems to be one of the most popular gifts for the holidays. I’ve got a gift for you, that even kids can help: pumpkin, spiced pecans in a painted pumpkin jars! This idea is cute from Dixie Crystals kids in the kitchen and it’s SO. It's the perfect gift idea for teachers, friends, neighbors, grandparents . . . anyone who appreciates a delicious seasoned nut in a seasonal jar (raises hand).
So that's where the Mod-hodgepodge, you ask? You’re going to your favorite Mod hodgepodge formula for closing the glasses. So the color lasts, and you can re-use. I recommend Hard Coat or dishwasher safe – or even Glitter, if you want to give your project a seasonal flair.
spiced pecans very easy to – you’ll just pour the ingredients in a slow cooker or in a pot on the stove. Children can definitely help with this part, and, of course, you can paint the small pumpkin-jars and seal it with decoupage medium. Here’s how you’ll find this awesome food and gifts!
