Today I have a fun and simple Handmade Cute Christmas Gift idea for you. This fun Elf Mason Jar Christmas Gift! Fill it with candy and gift to family and friends this Holiday!
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 because 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 happening at the time.
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.
Elf Christmas Mason Jar Gift Idea

- Tiny Jingle Bell

Step One: Make the Elf Felt Collar
Cut a zig-zag pattern from the piece of felt. You’ll want it to be a bit wider than the mouth of the mason jar. Just “wing it” and cut the zig-zags, think, elementary school craft project LOL! Secure the felt to the jar with a bit of hot glue (be careful, the hot glue is… well.. hot).
Step Two: Glue the Buttons to the Jar
Then add the buttons (also with hot glue).
Step Three: Attach the Tag
Print and cut out your tag. Cut a piece of twine about 2x as long as your mason jar, run it through your tag and bell. Tie to the mason jar!
