5 Festive Mason Jar Christmas Gifts
Jun 16, 2023
Nothing is more heartwarming than making a handmade gift for your loved ones. Here are some ideas to repurpose mason jars and transform them into gifts that everyone will love.
Winter wonderland snow globes
Bring your winter wonderland to life when you make these adorable mason jar snow globes! Use miniature figurines and toys, pictures, and lots of glitter.
Super glue your centerpiece on the lid of the mason jar, fill the jar with liquid (glycerine works best), then add glitter. Seal the jar with the lid tightly, shake, and watch the glitter fall gracefully on the scene.
Floating candle holders
This gift is practical, beautiful, and keeps the Christmas spirit alive! Use miniature pine trees, mini ornaments, beads or potpourris, and scented floating candles.
Super glue your miniature pine tree at the bottom of the mason jar, fill it with water until nearly full, then add your ornaments. To prepare as a gift, seal the jar tight and pack the candle separately. To use—simply place the candle on top of the floating ornaments, then light it.
Garden in a jar
Keep spring alive when it’s cold out with these stunning mason jar terrariums. There are plenty of succulents and plants you can use for this—tillandsia, jade plant, and string of pearls. They make perfect gifts for your tree-hugging friends!
Layer small pebbles and soil at the bottom of the mason jar. Carefully place and arrange your plants on the soil, then finish off by decorating the outside of the jar with ribbons, stickers, etc.
‘Sweet Tidings’ candy jars
These candy jars take little to no effort—which makes them a life-saver for last-minute gifts.
Place festive candies or marshmallows in the jar, then decorate the outside with ribbons, ornaments, and a Christmas card. Easy as that!
