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!
Thank you, Amber!
Aren’t these jars adorable and perfect for gift-giving? If you like this craft, you’ll like these ideas too!
