December 6th, 2011 | Mason Jar Magic!

I love mason jars so much! There are so many things that you  can do with them. They truly are magical, even when it’s not the Holiday’s. Here are some great idea’s I found floating around the internet for DIY gift & decorations for the holidays using mason jars!

Jars are great for creating simple and elegant Christmas decorations!

These look so pretty at night! I used to make them all the time as a kid. Great for gifts, or yourself!

This is SUCH a quick & easy gift idea! Just stack the dry ingredients, and include baking and mixing instructions!

Mason jar candles are my favourite! You can make a candle right in them, or use them as a holder.

Martha Stewart has a great tutorial on how to make a mason jar snow globe

Some of my other favourite idea’s include vases, using jars to package/wrap gifts in, giving homemade preserves, using for storage at a Christmas party (straws, candy canes, etc). What’s your favourite thing to use mason jars for?!

    Ooooh I love the one with the lights!  I’ve done the dry mix one with hot chocolate ingredients (I think it was just layered cocoa, sugar, mini marshmallows) for work prezzies one year.  I’ve never heard of Cowgirl Cookies but they look awesome with those labels!
