DIY Mason Jar Christmas Gifts


I just love mason jars.  They make any gift come together.  In this blog post, I will show you how I make these waterless snow globes and hot cocoa jars.  In the past, I’ve even used mason jars in substitution of an easter basket.

The hot cocoa in a jar is so easy, I just added a few extra twists.  I added crushed candy canes and called it “candy cane cocoa”.  I jazzed it up with some stickers I made on my Cricut Explore and some images from design space.  I love being able to personalize anything with my Cricut Explore, including hot cocoa.


Making the waterless snow globes was even easier.  I always love the idea of making your own snow globes during the Christmas season, however, the idea of water inside a container that I can’t 100% guarantee will stay filled with water deterred me all these years.  I decided to try out the waterless snow globes, and they are festive and surprisingly delightful.

I found some tiny evergreen trees at a craft store, along with some paper cranes I’ve made, and other holiday knick-knacks I have lying around the house like jingle bells and bits of gold tinsel.  Check out the video below to see how the whole process went for me!


Happy holidays and thank you for reading my blog!

Sincerely, Amy ❤
