DIY Mason Jar Gifts!

27 Dec

On a budget or just don’t know what to get a friend or a family member that already has it all? What about a homemade gift that’s from the heart? Especially when it comes to food, even those who have it all would still love it! Sorry I had to post this after Christmas, I couldn’t spoil the surprise that I made these for some of my friends by blogging about it! It was super simple and only took a few hours.

Here are some helpful tips!

1. Make a paper funnel to help you pour all your ingredients perfectly into your mason jar and not all over your kitchen floor!

2. Plan ahead of time and trial and error to see what color combination you want to see in the jars!

3. Line up your ingredients on your kitchen counter so it’s easier to put into mason jars, instead of scrambling around for the right ingredients.

I also made little printable booklets to send with the mason jars so my friends know how to bake the cookies. Along with that, I also provided ways they can reuse this mason jar after the cookies are baked! I’ve attached a downloadable pdf version of my booklet here. (Click on the image below and the pdf will download!) Hope this was helpful! Happy Holidays!
