After thoroughly cleaning and drying the jars, I cut out little snowflakes from some old adhesive labels. (I used a snowflake punch, but you could use whatever shape you want.) Then I sprayed the outside of the jars and tops with a glass frost spray. I added a gingham ribbon and an aged tag, but you can use whatever you want or have on hand to embellish.
You can use other containers as well. This is a regular Ball canning pint jar. I used the spray and decals the same way, but topped the jar lid with fabric and an artificial candy that I had on hand.
You can use these in your holiday gift giving. They would be great for mixes, candies, or even a handmade ornament. Use your imagination. What about a doggie themed fabric, with dog treats inside? Or a cookie mix with a cookie cutter tied on top? The possibilities are endless! Let me know how you decorate your jars!
