These fun Christmas mason jars are one of the best holiday crafts to ring in the festive season. Grab some paint and a few jars, and let’s get started!
Quick Holiday Craft Ideas: Christmas Mason Jars
The nights are long in late fall into winter, and here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we’re filling them with fun (and quick) Christmas crafts.
These character Christmas mason jars are one of the fun, festive holiday crafts we’re sharing this week. The paint is on the outside, so they are perfect for gift giving. You could fill these mason jars with:
- a stack of cookies
- Christmas bark
- dipped pretzels
- holiday candies
- money (please send this one to me…)
Supplies to Make a 30-Minute Christmas Mason Jar Set
This is an easy craft, perfect for when you’re watching a television show you’re only half-interested in…
- 3 mason jars, any size but we like the 24-ounce wide-mouth ones
- acrylic paint in brown, red, white, black
- glitter glue or puffy paint (or regular acrylic paint) in red glitter, black, and gold
- foam brushes
- optional, ModPodge to seal (use dishwasher-safe or regular)
How to Make Christmas Treat Jars
I’m not sure this actually needs a step-by-step tutorial, but here goes…
- Paint one jar red, one jar white, and one jar brown.
- Let dry completely and repeat with another coat. Let dry.
- On the white jar, add black paint to make three black “buttons.” You could also hot glue on real buttons.
- For the red jar, use the black paint to form a belt for Santa’s coat. Once dry, use gold paint for an open vertical rectangle for the belt buckle.
- Rudolph’s mason jar is complete with a painted red circle in red acrylic or glitter paint.
- If you’re sealing, use a foam brush and ModPodge to protect the paint from scratches. Two coats will keep the jars looking great.
