Gifting D.I.Y Mason Jars are my favorite! It’s a fun, affordable, and totally adorable gift.

The best part is, you don’t have to be a crafting wizard to complete this DIY project nor have a ton of time. These jars are very simple to assemble. All you’ll need is a mason jar, ribbon, and maybe a label.

My favorite: THE SPA KIT


First, choose the jar size you’d like to use. The large jar above is from Target for about $15.00. Whatever size you decide on will dictate what can be stuffed into the jar. To make this Spa Kit, fill the jar with everything a person would need to pamper themselves. Visit a store like Target because they will have regular and travel size products. The Spa Kit Jar is always a total hit!

Just thinking of you: THE CANDY JAR


Literally, the easiest jar of them all to put together. Just fill a mason jar with candy. I make these all the time for co-workers, family members, & friends. People love receiving these! I try to use candy that I know will be look pretty along with ribbon. I love going to an actual candy store and picking out candies that are colorful and/or have texture.



I really enjoy making mommy survival kits for baby showers, because while everyone else buys things for the baby, my focus is on the soon-to be-mother. This jar is fun to put together. Whatever store you decide to purchase everything from, I do suggest taking the mason jar with you to the beauty/toiletry section. This way you will be able to see exactly what will or will not fit into your jar. Its easy to over-purchase. Believe me, I’ve done it plenty of times! Purchase things like, travel size Lysol spray, tide sticks, mini deotarant, lotions, chapstick, mouthwash, mints, medicine, wipes, and other cool items. I also pick the new mother up some mascara, lipstick, nail polish, and eyeshadow just to add a little glam to the kit.





Remember Mason Jar DIY gifting the next time you’re struggling to think of a cool gift to give someone.

Until next time,
