Christmas in a Jar - Mason Jar Crafts for the Holidays
You can use mason jars for all kinds of crafts to make and sell. They can be turned into fairy lights, or solar lights or anything your imagine. You can get accessories that make it easier and quicker to get creative too especially online.
I love this really lovely Christmas in a Jar video and hopefully this can get you inspired to create a few for your Christmas craft show. Mason jars are perfect for this project because they have the wider mouth making it easier to work with. You can also get the battery flickering candle to keep things safe, and watch things glow at night. Check it out!
Check out the above video for ideas, I especially like the actual cutout that is glued to the outside of the glass for the contrast but both work well.
Mason jars are not only good for crafts they also make great containers for wrapping your Christmas gifts! If you are looking to sell a craft idea at your show, you could sell these as themed gifts. You could have a craft jar filled with pens or small bottles of paint, or a sewing jar filled with some supplies for example.
Decorate the jars and paint the lids and these could be sold as a "Secret Santa" gift at your shows. Many work places do the secret santa and it would be nice to buy something a little different. You can set a budget for the items inside and reflect that in your price.
Spa in a jar
Another awesome gift idea for your mason jar is a Spa in a Jar. These jars can be filled with smaller items for pedicures or manicures and chocolates. You could fill with nail polish, or even gift certificates for a day out at a spa. These jars can then be reused and it is a great way to reduce wrapping paper.
If you are selling these at craft fairs they can be presented as beautiful spa gifts. I think this is an awesome idea to use the gifts as part of the decorating. The customer has everything they need for their gift giving in one jar.
These jars can be used as gift holders such as the two videos above, or for Secret Santa ideas, you could have different price ranges, don't forget to keep track of your expenses and add your profit. It would save people time shopping and it is definitely something different, a spin on the gift basket days. At least the jar can then be used for another purpose when done.
Mason Jar Christmas Candle
These can make awesome gifts for anyone, so they would sell quite well. In this video she simply decorate a jar then adds the flickering battery candle. But you could take this one step further and add a hanger to the jar to hang them up. You can get these online.
These are a very quick craft and would make a cute gift for a party. Add the hanger below and they can be hung in the tree as you use the safe battery lights in these jars.
You can have a lot of fun with these jars, and since Christmas is the biggest season for craft shows and fairs, you can take some of these ideas and hopefully do well. I really love the idea of the gifts in the jar or the spa in a jar as the shopping is already done!
These jars are so versatile, and can add to your bottom line in your craft business.
