I saw this idea on Tatertots and Jello a while back ago and thought they were super easy and very cute!

Take several different jar sizes and wash them out really good.  I think I used a pickle Jar, a yellow pepper jar and I also had a cherry jar and another pickle jar.  I just saved them instead of throwing them away.  Once I had them all nice and cleaned off (I used a magic eraser to remove any ink expiration date stamps) I washed the jars three or 4 times in the dishwasher before using them to make sure the pickle smell was completely gone.

I set to work painting the lids white.  It took ALOT of coats of spray paint to cover those lids. I would definately prime them first next time. I found some glass candle holders at the dollar store and also painted those white to match the lids of my jars.

Here they are being spray painted:

once the lids and candle holders were completely covered in white paint and completely dry. I glued the base of the jar to a candlestick using E6000 and let them dry overnight.  Once dry I added ribbon and some candy!

Cheap cute candy jars!

These would make a great centerpiece and they add so much color to my kitchen counters!  Great gift idea too!
