Mason Jar Christmas Gift Idea

Hello there! My name is Melissa and I’m the girl behind the Polka Dot Chair Blog. My goal at the Polka Dot Chair is to inspire you to want to make something! Whether it’s a sewing project, a craft or a yummy recipe I want you to leave feeling inspired to create!


Today I am going to share with you this fun Mason Jar Christmas Gift. I’ve even included a FREE printable for you! Stop by my blog, say “hello”, enter the giveaway and download your free gift tag printable.

I love to give out simple yet cute gifts at Christmas, and I love to think of clever ways to package them. I think this “faux” Santa Mason Jar would make a great teacher or neighbor gift. I filled mine with red licorice bites but you can pick any red candy that you like.

To make it you’ll need:

A Mason Jar that is not marked

Black 1” wide ribbon

Brass Buckle (you can buy these very inexpensively at a craft store in the notions section)

Mason Jar Christmas Gift Idea

Simply feed the black ribbon through the buckle and attach to the back of the Mason jar with a bit of hot glue.

Print out the gift tag and tie it to the jar with twine, sign the back and you’re done!


I’d love to connect with you on Facebook, Pinterest or BlogLovin’ ! Make sure you stop by and enter the giveaway!

Hi Melissa! Lovely idea, I'm thinking of doing it but instead of candy I'm using Cherries. I live in Argentina and it's Cherry season here (also it's summer and hot as hell). Thank you so much for sharing, it's an inexpensive, nice gift for friends.
