Today I am sharing this fun Santa Mason Jar Christmas Gift with you. I’ve even included a printable Christmas gift tag!
I love to give simple yet cute Christmas gifts and think of clever ways to package them. This DIY Santa Mason jar would make a great teacher gift or neighbor gift! I’ve also included a few other Mason Jar Christmas craft ideas.

I filled mine with red licorice bites, but you can pick any red candy (like chocolates with red candy wrappers) you like.

How to Make a Santa Belt Buckle from Cardstock
Note: If you can’t find gold buckles, you can use Metallic Cardstock.
To make the buckle, cut a 1 ½″ x 1 ½″ square from black cardstock. Using a paper trimmer or Exacto or craft knife, cut two slits in the square to feed the ribbon through. The cuts should be 1″ long.
Then, simply feed the black ribbon through the buckle.
Step One: Fill with Candy
Fill your mason jar with red candy. A few ideas include Licorice, red M&M’s, red gumballs, or peppermint candies.
After you have filled your jar with red candy, secure it with the lid that came with the Mason Jar.
Step Two: Attach the Santa Belt
Next, cut a piece of black ribbon slightly larger than the mason jar circumference.
Feed your Santa Buckle through the ribbon.
Then use a hot glue gun to secure the ends of the ribbon on the back of the jar.
Step Three: Attach the Tags to the Santa Jar
Print out the Santa Tags, tie it to the jar with twine, sign the back, and you’re done!
Note: if you’re printing directly on the Avery Tags, make sure you have your printer set to print at “100% or actual size”. Also, ensure your printer does not add any margins to the document.
If you’d like to make smaller mason jars, you can too! They would be equally cute, and you wouldn’t need to buy as much candy.
