Last year I shared a very simple Santa Claus Mason Jar Christmas gift idea, today I’m going to share with you an Elf Christmas Mason Jar Gift Idea and Craft… I was astonished how popular the Santa Mason Jars became, I posted it and next thing I knew it was all over Pinterest and stayed there all year long. It was funny to me becuse of all of the things I’ve made it wasn’t what I would have picked to go viral. Later in December last year I made it a “friend” this snowman mason jar, inspired in part by the Frozen phenomenon that was sweeping the nation. This post includes affiliate links
This year I thought that the little mason jars needed one more friend, and since you all seemed to like the others so much, I decided to go ahead and add an Elf to the mix this year.
It’s the same idea as the other two. Very simple mason jars filled with colorful candy and easily embellished. I also included a printable Christmas gift tag to go with the jar.
To make this you’ll need :
1. Elf Tags: Due to the popularity of the tags last Christmas I am simplifying the process for you to download ALL of my Christmas Mason Jar tags.
The Ultimate Christmas Tag Bundle offers ALL of the Christmas tags (including the one for this craft) plus a bonus of 5 other tags that are not offered with any other project! (including Santa, Reindeer, Merry Christmas, Snowman etc). It’s only $1.99 and you do not need to subscribe to this site. It’s a one time purchase.
A link to download the file yourself will be sent to you immediately after you complete your purchase. This file includes versions of the tags formatted for BOTH cardstock and pre-scored Avery Tags.
2. Avery Tags or Cardstock —the tags on plain cardstock or save yourself some effort and print on perforated tags (the printable is formatted for these tags, they are my absolute MUST have Christmas wrapping item, no cutting out tags!!)
All you do to make the jar is cut a zig zag pattern in the red felt and glue it around the neck of the mason jar. Then add the buttons (also with hot glue) and tie the tag on. To add an extra touch I tied a tiny jingle bell onto the tag.
