Holiday décor is a pretty vague title for this project …
but I’m not quite sure what to call these holiday mason jars.
Maybe holiday mason jar candy jars?
Or holiday gift jars?
Or maybe a holiday décor idea for a shelf or mantel or bookcase?
Or a fun gift card holder for the holidays?
No matter what I call them, they were really easy to make …
HOW TO MAKE HOLIDAY GIFT JARS
Step 1: Supplies
Two sizes of mason jars.
Modeling clay (found mine at Michael’s)
Step 2: Glue
Glue the lids to the bands …
and don’t forget to do this first. Not that I forgot and had to go back once my trees and figurines were already glued to the lid.
Step 3: Glue … again
Glue the figurines and bottle brush trees to the lids.
Step 4: Modeling Clay
Use the modeling clay to fill in empty spaces on lid.
Working all the way around; smooth with fingers.
In the end, the lid will look like snow.
Step 5: Glitter
I couldn’t leave well enough alone. So I applied some Mod Podge with a paint brush …
… and sprinkled on a generous coat of glitter.
And while I’m still not sure what to ’officially’ call these holiday mason jars, ‘unofficially’ I just call them so stinking cute!
