Blogmas Day 3: DIY Mason Jar Gifts

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

Hello my darlings! 
How is your day going? Today's December 3rd, and as you guys know, this calls for another Blogmas post! 

Have you ever had a mason jar laying around that you don't know what to do with it? I've got your problem solved! You can make pretty awesome gifts with them, from candy jars, to beverage mixes and even body scrubs! 
You can keep them for yourself or you can wrap some ribbon on it and give it as a cute, personalized Christmas gift! 

Here are some of my favorite ideas! 

This first idea, is  a great Christmas decoration that you can do over night. All you need is a heart shaped sticker, spray paint (in this case black), cord, a white glass marker and a candle. 
Stick your heart where ever you prefer on the inside of the car and spray the inside of the jar with your paint. wait for it to complete dry and then remove the sticker! do the outline of the heart with the marker (on the outside!), add the cord and the candle and voilá! How gorgeous is that!? 

If you've got a friend with a sweet tooth, there's probably not a better gift than a hot cocoa recipe mason jar! Take your jar and scoop in 1 cup of powered milk, 1 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 cup of granulated sugar, 1/4 of a teaspoon of salt, 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, 1/2 of crushed peppermint candy and 1/2 cup of mini marshmallows by this order. Lace them up with a note saying "Mix in large bowl and add a cup of hot water", with any kind of sweet message you desire! You'll make so many people happy! 

Another AMAZING thing you can do with mason jars is snow globes! All you need is a toy or 2 that you like, super glue, fake snow and ribbon! attach the toy to the lid or bottom of your mason jar with a strong glue, and once it is dried, put some snow on the jar. close it and tie a ribbon around it. Give it a good shake and see the magic happen!
