Ho ho ho and hello! It’s Toni over from Design Dazzle. I love any opportunity to work with the great girls of U-Create, so when they asked me to share a quick and easy under $5 Christmas gift, I was more than happy to!
With all of the hustle and bustle of this wonderful season, it’s a total lifesaver to be able to finish things quickly! As you’re looking over your long to-do list, and checking it twice- an easy neighbor gift is exactly what you need to help get everything done. This simple gift is as easy to make as it is beautiful! Your neighbors and friends will love to add this “Just Add Water” candle mason jar to their Christmas decor!
- mason jar
- fresh cranberries
- artificial or real greenery
- floating candle
- “Just Add Water” or “To: & From:” printables!
Step 1: Wash your mason jar and put the greenery and cranberries in the jar. If you are planning to use the “Just Add Water!” printable, don’t put water in the jar. If you are going to use the simple “To: & From:” printable, go ahead and fill the jar with water to just below the lip of the jar.
Step 2: Cut a long strip of ribbon. Put the ribbon over the mouth of the jar and screw on the jar top without the lid. This ribbon will hold the candle on. Place the candle on top of the jar and tie a tight bow over it to secure the candle.
Step 3: Print out the “Just Add Water” printable! Cut the tag out and using ribbon, attach it to the jar.
If you want to add the “Just Add Water” tag, give the mason jar without water. If you want to add the “To and From” tag, fill the mason jar with water.
There you have it! 3 steps later, in under 5 minutes, you have a darling, inexpensive gift to share with your friends and neighbors. This beautiful mason jar gift is sure to light up your friends’ homes at this special time of the year!
