Mason Jar Holiday Gifts

Plain glass jars are decorated in festive colors and filled full of SPICED NUTS make for the perfect party favor and that's just what we gave away at OUR THANKSGIVING DINNER.

There are so many ways to get creative with this crafty gift. Fill mason jars with anything from spiced nuts to dry cookie ingredients to homemade jam. Tied off in holiday theme ribbons and adorned with a dainty gift tag, they're a wonderful way to share some love and holiday spirit with friends and family.


Small glass jars - mason jars are inexpensive and can be purchased by the case
Silk leaves
Craft paper, stickers, paper punches


Step 1: Decorate the jar's lid with circular shapes of color cut or punched from craft paper. Add a Thanksgiving stamp, stickers, or your own personalized message to the top.

Step 2: Tie a silk maple leaf around the jar with ribbon. Small key embellishments that we found in the Scrapbooking section of the craft store dangle from the leaf and gave this little favor some added dimension and a vintage touch.

Step 3: Fill with spiced holiday nuts or anything else you want to gift!
