1. Hello,

    I know this comment is super late. But I’m making very similar favors. Did your jars also come with the canning lids? I got mine from Ace and they have the 2 part lid with the deal. Your photo looks like normal 1 piece lids. If this is correct, where did you get them? Thanks so much!

  2. What a great blog post! The mason jar favors looked so great on the tables at your wedding! I’ve been trying to put together mason jar favors myself for my upcoming wedding in July, but came across the same issue of the jars seeming to be a great deal online…until you add shipping. So the tips on Ace Hardware and the cheap label website are much appreciated.

  3. Hi Jamie,

    I love your ideas! My wedding is in September 2014 and we are marrying in a barn. It’s a rustic country theme and our invitations are in the shape of mason jars. I will order the mason jars from Ace as well. I’m curious as to how may pounds of candy you purchased? I am looking to purchase plain M&Ms. If you can give me an idea of how many pounds you ordered and how many 4oz mason jars it filled, that would be great! Thank you!


    • Hi Elena!

      Congrats on your upcoming wedding, your theme sounds just beautiful! We made 225 of the 4oz jar favors, and I believe that we ordered 20lbs of jelly bellies, however I ran out and wound up having to supplement with some matching color sixlets I got at Party City, so I would recommend at least 25lbs for that many jars. Hope that helps! Best of luck to you!

      • Hi Jamie!

        Thank you very much!!! I can’t believe that you made 225 favors! I don’t have close to that many to make. Based on your numbers (25lbs for 225 jars), I am going to average out that I will need approximately 1lb for every nine 4oz jars.

        Also, for any of your followers that live near a Wegmans grocery store, I accidently stumbled across the same jars that you got from Ace at Wegmans for $7.99. The down side to this is that my Wegmans only stocks 2 cases on the shelf, so I’ll need to make a few trips. However, I have Ace Hardware as a backup ๐Ÿ™‚

        Thank you for all of your great ideas!


  4. Thank you for sharing your ideas. Could I have both templates for the labels and thank yous?

  7. I would also love the template for the top of the jar, please! what a great idea, I’m getting married in October! thank you!

    • 3oz of jelly beans fit comfortably in each 4oz jar.

    • Hi Teresa,
      I had 220 jars to fill, and I ordered one 10lb bag of each color (so 20lbs total) but I actually ran out and had to get some extra candy to fill about another 20ish jars, so I would recommend if you’re doing 220 jars, you need at least 25-30lbs of jelly bellies.

      Hope that helps!

  8. I would love to have the thank you note and jar top as well!! love them ๐Ÿ™‚
