Mason Jars are the crafting rage right now…and I LOVE it! They are so cute and the ideas out there dazzling up and decorating these classics are endless and tremendous! Before this year, I only used or saw Mason Jars at their best holding gorgeous food that I and others had canned. However, now you see them all over the place cuter than ever, and Christine from I Dig Pinterest is here today sharing a very cute and very festive Mason Jar perfect for gift giving or adding to your Christmas decor! Enjoy!
Hi again Ribbon Retreat readers! It’s Christine from I Dig Pinterest here to share a fun Christmas craft with you! I just love giving fun and simple gifts to my neighbors during the holidays, and we all love the jolly old man who brings brightly wrapped packages on Christmas Eve, so I whipped up some cute treat jars in his honor.
They are so simple to make! You could totally mass produce these for everyone on your gift list. They’re sure to be well received!
Paint the outside of your jar red. I waited to paint the rim of my jar until the rest was done. I did two coats, allowing it to dry in between.
Now paint the rim and let dry.
Paint the lid (both pieces) black. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect. It adds character. I like that the brush strokes are visible and you can see through to the lid in some areas.
Hot glue your ribbon onto the lid. Mine wasn’t wide enough, so I layered it in two sections.
Here’s the second layer. Just make sure it overlaps the first and that you start in the same place with both layers.
Now tie another piece of red and white striped ribbon in a bow and hot glue it to the lid. I glued mine over the seam to cover it nicely.
Cut a piece of black satin ribbon, measuring first to make sure it will go all the way around your jar. Glue it to the front of your jar, making sure it’s centered and positioned where you’d like it.
Now wrap one side of ribbon around and add a little glue in a few places to keep it in place. Wrap the other side around and glue in the back.
Cut a small rectangle out of your gold ribbon and glue to the front center of your jar on the black ribbon. I love the fun metallic look of this ribbon! It’s just the perfect amount of shimmery, adding a pop of holiday cheer.
Cut a smaller rectangle out of your black satin ribbon so it will fit inside the gold rectangle and allow gold to show around the edges. This will be Santa’s buckle.
Glue the small black piece inside the gold rectangle.
Now glue two small black buttons up the front of the jar.
Fill it with peppermints or other festive treats and give it to someone you love!
How’s that for an inexpensive, adorable gift? Happy holidays!
