I will admit that I’m not the most crafty person in the world, but when a creative idea hits, I have to admit I get really excited about it. Mason jars are traditionally used for canning preserves, they can be used as drinking glasses, but also can be used for endless decorative gift ideas. I’m so excited to share with you this easy, and inexpensive, mason jar Christmas gift using Bernardin Smooth Jars. Their high-quality jars with smooth, sleek sides are perfect for crafting, so if canning isn’t your thing, I know there’s lots of crafty things you DIYers can think of to make with mason jars!
Mason Jar Christmas Gift
All of these items can be found at dollar stores, except the Bernardin Smooth Jars, but fear not, you can save some money on those too by grabbing a coupon here. Keep in mind this is just one idea with endless possibilities, you can put whatever you want in these jars that fit, and when they’re done, they make a great homemade gift, a gift for a gift exchange, or you can keep them for yourself. I make them for the kids rooms to use as a festive nightlight.
You will need:
- 500 ml or 1 litre Bernardin Smooth mason jars
- Christmas ornament/figurine that will fit in your jar such as bottle brush Christmas trees
- Faux snow
- Super glue or hot glue
- Button magnet
- Battery-operated tea light candle
All I did was glue the flat lid into the mason jar ring so it would stay in place. Next, I glued a magnet onto the bottom of the tea light so it could stick underneath the mason jar lid. Then I added my ornament and tree in the bottom of the jar (I glued them to the bottom so they wouldn’t move around—you can too!), added my snow and that was it! SO EASY!
I’m absolutely in love with how they look, especially their soft and flickering glow at night. So, if you’re scrambling for a teacher gift, bus driver gift, caregiver/babysitter gift or anyone else that you need a gift for, I hope you try this inexpensive and cute gift to make!
I also used the 1 litre smooth jars and you can fit more in them and I think this set is just absolutely adorable. I’m keeping them for myself! What would you make with Bernardin Smooth Jars for a decorative gift?
