Looking for thoughtful, creative, quirky and inexpensive gifts?
Not to mention ‘gift-wrap-struggle’ free! Mason jars changed my life. And I mean it. Do you know how much time we spend wrapping gifts? With kids and errands and cooking — 4 out of 5 of those gifts wrapped don’t really look half as good as the ones we find on Pinterest.
But gifts in jars are perfect ways to give love this Christmas. They’re easy to make, gorgeous, thoughtful and it looks like you’ve put much effort.
1) Make a Mason Jar Lantern
Jars are perfect containers for anything girly! All you need is some spray paint, some glitter and/or some bedazzling. Can be used to store pens, candles, nail polishes, whatever that can fit — it works and it’s super pretty! You can always add a bit of wire and a tealight candle to make an amazing mason jar lantern for your outdoor areas!
2) Candle Holder
Candle holders are perfect and a DIY one won’t hurt. Some bedazzling and some glitter and spray paint — voila!
3) Sweet Yummy Licorice!
