Hi friends! This is Amber from Crazy Little Projects here to kick off the holiday season with a fun, cute and simple Christmas project.
I’m excited for the holiday season (truth is, I am already fully involved in baking, shopping, and crafting for Christmas!) – I love putting little gifts in jars and I love covering things in glitter. Put those things together and throw some chocolate inside and it can’t be beat! Here are some Christmas Treat Jars:
Three cute little friends for you! Santa, Reindeer and Snowman:
Christmas Treat Jars:
- Jars (get them from a craft store or use baby food jars)
- Glitter – Red, white and brown
- Googlie eyes
- Red pom pom
- Black ribbon
- Silver foam sheet
- Black beads
- Orange paper
- Hot Glue
- Brown pipe cleaner
Start out by covering your jar with a layer of decoupage. Pour glitter all over your jar, fully covering it. Set aside to dry.
Once your red glitter is dry, wrap a piece of black ribbon around the jar and hot glue it in place. Cut a square slightly larger than your ribbon and cut out the center of the square to make a belt buckle. Hot glue that in place and then fill it up with candy!
Cover your jar in white glitter. Glue two small googly eyes on and then cut a small carrot nose from your orange paper and glue that in place as well. Grab your small black beads and glue them to create a smile:
Cover in brown glitter. Hot glue two googly eyes in place and add your pom pom nose. Cut one brown pipe cleaner in half. Snip off another 1-2 inches and wrap them around the other piece to shape it into an antler. Hot glue this to the lid and you are set!
Today I am sharing another fun jar gift idea for Christmas with a free printable tag! Check it out here!
