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.

Assembly Instructions

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!

  1. Even though I have subscribed, I haven’t received a “password”… I tried a few times more and also checked my spam folder. Am I doing something wrong??

    1. You know the email that contains the link that says “Activate your subscription to: Polka Dot Chair”… it’s in that email, just below the link. Let me know if you don’t see it.

  2. Oh this is SO cute! I’d love to download the adorable tags, but unfortunately, I don’t have the password. I’m already an email subscriber, and I followed the instructions for the password, but no email was sent. I’m lost…

    1. Did you get the email that said ” Activate your email subscription to: The Polka Dot Chair” ? It’s in that email, just below the activate link.

  3. I’ve been subscribed for awhile and no longer have the activate email with the password. How can I get it now so I can download these cute labels for the mason jar?

  4. I went to the link and registered but I cant find the elf tags shown in the photo. The “Holly jolly Christmas” link is for a round tag. Help?

  5. i would like to see a reindeer tag with chocolate pretzels these are neat ideas i’am making them for our cookie exchange

  8. These are soooo cute! Thank you so much for sharing. Do you remember how many bags of M&M’s you used for each jar? I’m just trying to calculate how many I need to buy. I’m thinking you used the 16 oz. jars, right? Thanks!

  9. I have tried to print these labels. I bought the correct labels. I have waited about 4 sheets of these labels so far. They are not lining up right. I can only get two labels per sheet right. Help! I don’t want to waste $18 on labels.

    1. When you are in Acrobat make sure you have page scaling set to “none” or “actual size”. Do not click “fit on page”

  11. How many m&ms did you use for the Elf? Trying to figure out how much i need to buy for 12 elfs…. they come in 8oz packages

    1. I wouldn’t buy 8oz packages, you’ll need way to many. My local Target had big bags of them. I think it takes about 1 1/2 -2 per jar, depending how full you want them.

      1. I love this idea and I LOVE the font that says Elf Mason Jar Christmas Gift! (on the picture of the jar) Would you share which font it is? Thanks so much! I love your blog!

  27. Even though this post was 2 years old, I loved it! I purchased your cute label set because I didn’t want to make my own. lol. Sparkle-tastic! Thank you.

  28. I tried to order tags – unfortunately you do not ship to Canada. Don’t know why since it’s a digital file. Disappointing!

    1. It’s due to taxes. I can’t file them in Canada for products I sell. You can order them on etsy (they take care of the taxes for me) etsy.com/shop/polkadotchair
