Mason Jar Goodies for Cold Weather

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

I love fall and winter. It’s a time when you stay huddled at home with people you love, and friends and family spend more time together. Today’s Mason Jar goodies are all about cold weather and all the get-togethers you’ll hopefully enjoy this season.

Whether you have them at the ready as little gifts for those who drop by, or you use them as rustic additions to your decor, I think you’ll agree that they’re completely wonderful.

I can picture these sitting by the door in a rustic basket. I predict they’d be a big hit!

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]I’m absolutely crushing on this simple Hot Cocoa mix in a Mason Jar. I love the colors, the simplicity, and the varied textures of the hard chunks of peppermint next to the soft, fluffy marshmallows.

The snacks are the “art” of the jar and you could change the way they look based on what you put inside.

At Thanksgiving, I could see peanuts and yellow M&M’s, and maybe some candied orange peels.

Christmas could be all sorts of things in red, green, gold, silver… all the beautiful jewel tones of the season.

You’ll want to visit 100 Layer Cake for sure.

Right?

These custom labels from Etsy Shop “KudzuMonster,” are so darling. And, less than $20 for 20 labels![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_blank” image=”12121″ img_size=”full” style=”vc_box_shadow_3d” link=”https://www.etsy.com/listing/190021299/set-of-20-custom-lemonade-limoncello?ref=sr_gallery_17&ga_search_query=mason+jar+labels&ga_ref=auto7&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Mason Jar Wedding Ideas!

Spring is on its way – thank goodness. Lots of couples will be tying the knot this spring, and oodles will be looking for Mason Jar wedding ideas. Mason Jars are perfect for a wedding because you can use them in so many ways, and they are really inexpensive to buy in bulk and dress up.

Mason Jar wedding ideas shared on MasonJarCraftsBlog.com.

Mason Jar Wedding Ideas for Spring Weddings

From Bubby & Bean She cut up an old catalog and began decoupaging Mason Jars to create candle holders for her wedding. She shows you exactly how she did it and how you can, too.

From August & After: I know you’ve seen these Mason Jars with photos in them before. But, I think her tutorial is so great and that she continues to enjoy them long after the wedding is so special, you should give these another look.

This last one is from me – and while it’s not a Mason Jar, I’m including it here because I think it could very easily be adapted to become a darling Mason Jar wedding idea. I made several of them, and when I light them at night, they are so pretty.

Wedding Center Piece idea using Dollar Store candle holders, keys and vinegar. :-)

First, I took some keys I had – just silver colored regular keys you probably have laying around – nothing fancy, and soaked them all in white vinegar for a couple hours. It gave them a nice rustic patina that I love. Once they were all dry, I coated some of them with Mod Podge and sprinkled them with a very fine glitter dust.

I took an old book and tore out some pages and decoupaged a Dollar Store candle holder with it. While the Mod Podge was wet, I wrapped some twine around the holder several times. When it dried, I added another all-over coat of Mod Podge to the entire thing and sprinkled it with some very fine glitter – the same I used on the key.

Then, I tied my rustic key to another piece of twine, wrapped it around the twine I’d already wrapped around the holder, and secured it with a little knot.

In honor of my all-grown-up darling daughter, let’s celebrate the holiday she loved with some St. Patrick’s Day Mason Jars!

Yummy Valentine’s Gifts in Jars

I adore jars, and even though I’ve never been a real “Valentine’s Day” kind of girl, I find these lovely examples of sweetness and love completely irresistible. Forget a card someone else wrote! Make your Valentine something special with these gifts in jars.

Sweet Valentine gifts in jars.

Lovely and simple Valentine gift in a jar. You can make it, too!(via ~ Shaken Together Life )

I love the look of this lovely pink popcorn filling a large jar as a Valentine’s gift. It’s so unexpected. You can buy the strawberry popcorn at Amazon, or I’m sure you can make it yourself. And how cute would it be to tie a couple movie tickets around the top?

Delicious strawberry candy coated popcorn in a jar makes a sweet Valentine gift.

 

 

I think you could add all sorts of little embellishments (like these I found on Amazon) to the outside of your jars,  toss something wonderful on the inside, and you could create something entirely precious to give your Valentine as a gift this year.
