Ingredients

  • Mason Jars
  • Red Ribbon
  • Mint M&M's
  • Red heart-shaped Buttons
  • Hot glue gun + glue

Instructions

  • Fill as many mason jars as you want with the mint-flavored M&M's. 1 bag of Mint M&M's fills an 8-ounce jar about 3/4ths the way full so I use about 3 bags per 2 8-ounce mason jars.
  • (To cut down on cost if you are making a lot use smaller mason jars or a less expensive green-colored candy)
  • Tie a festive red ribbon around the top of the mason jar.
  • Using hot glue and a hot glue gun, glue the heart button to the right side of the jar (right from where the tie of the ribbon ends up.)

Ingredients

  • Mason Jars
  • Black Ribbon
  • Metal Belt-Buckles
  • Red candies I use chewy cherry sours
  • Hot glue gun + glue

Instructions

  • Fill as many mason jars as you want with a red candy of choice.
  • Cut a black ribbon the width of the jar and then thread on a "belt-buckle"
  • (I found the belt buckles at a craft store)
  • Using hot glue and a hot glue gun, glue the ribbon with the belt-buckle around the mason jar. (I only put glue on each end and pull it tight to attach it around the jar).

    Love these! I think these will make great gifts for my kids’ bus driver & teachers. I think I might add cotton balls to the lid for the Santa jar! I hope it will look okay 🙂

    I love these decorated jar crafts! The Grinch & Santa are for sure my favorites and so simple to do. What plugin are you using to add these crafts to your post? I like the plain print option and star ratings.

    1. Thanks Gloria! I talk about the buckle right under the picture of the Santa jar — there is a link to purchase buckles on Amazon or you can check your local craft store (I found them at Hobby Lobby in the sewing section)

  4. I’m going to make these for my children’s teachers gifts. I’m using chocolate covered star cookies for the reindeer.

    Cute idea! My 6 yr old gson gave me this idea to share. When showing him the grinch jar he said it looked kind of like santas helpers if it had an elf hat on top. He’s more creative than I!
