Mason Jar Gifts – DIY

mason jar gifts

My cupboards are overflowing with mason jars. My mason jar hoarding drives Mike completely crazy, but they’re just so useful. Each week, I stock my freezer with 6 to 8 mason jars full of my Green Glowing Smoothie, but I also use them to store leftovers and pantry items. They’re also great for making easy mason jar gifts.

For crafting, I especially love the pint-sized mason jar mugs, but any mason jar will work. I like to try to get all of my mason jars for under a dollar each, and have found lots at second hand stores, so each of these mason jar gifts works out to just a few bucks a pop.

A few coats of glass paint (I use this kind) is all it takes to transform those mason jars into inexpensive, personalized gifts.

  1. I’ve always wanted to try out chalkboard paint.
    Also that last one… so wonderful!
    I’ve never actually tried Bailey’s in hot chocolate, but I can’t imagine it being anything less that delicious.
