Peanut Brittle

Peanut brittle is a grand gift idea around the holidays that looks very nice in a decorated Mason jar. Either make the peanut brittle from your own recipe or buy peanut brittle from the store and fill the Mason jar with it. Tie a ribbon around the lid of the jar or add a bow to the jar for decoration.

Almond Bark

Making almond bark yourself is an easy way to fill several jars. Toast the almonds, peanuts or any other type of nut you choose. Spread them out on waxed paper and pour white, milk or dark chocolate over the nuts. Allow the bark to harden and break the bark into small enough pieces to fit inside the Mason jar.

Bead Kit

Fill a mason jar with layers of different coloured beads, creating your own look to the jar. Tie plastic string or bead wire several times around the lid of the jar for the complete bead kit. This makes an excellent gift for children.

Love Notes

Write or type 365 love notes. Fill the jar with the love notes. Tie a red curled ribbon around the Mason jar and attach a note explaining to remove a love note daily from the jar. The recipient of this Christmas gift will have daily reminders of how special he is.

Rainy Day

Collect coins and fill the jar with them. Layer the coins starting with the penny on the bottom and ending with the quarter on the top. Tie a ribbon around the jar lid and attach a note explaining to use the coins in the Mason jar for rainy day funding.

Homemade Candle

Melt your own wax into the Mason jar and complete it with a long-lasting wick. This gift will keep the room smelling good for months. Tie a bow or ribbon around the jar and attach a holiday card to it.

Bath Salts

Assort different coloured bath salts in layers of the Mason jar. For a special Mason jar craft, attach a small bottle of body spray to the Mason jar with curled ribbon.
