Today I am going to share with you this fun Santa Mason Jar Christmas Gift. I’ve even included a printable tag for you!
I love to give out simple yet cute gifts at Christmas, and I love to think of clever ways to package them. This Santa Mason Jar would make a great teacher or neighbor gift! I’ve also included a few other Mason Jar Christmas Craft ideas for you as well!
I filled mine with red licorice bites but you can pick any red candy that you like.
If you like the Santa Mason jar then you might also like the rest of the “family”. I’ve also created Reindeer Mason Jars, Elf Jars, Angel Jars & Snowman Jar gifts.

How to Make a Santa Buckle from Cardstock:
Note: If you can’t find gold buckles you can use Metallic Cardstock.
To make the buckle, cut a 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ square from black cardstock. Using a paper trimmer or Exacto knife, cut two slits in the square to feed the ribbon through. The cuts should be 1″ long.
Simply feed the black ribbon through the buckle.
To Assemble the Santa Mason Jars:
Step One: Fill with Candy
Fill your mason jar with red candy. A few ideas for you include, Licorice, red M&M’s or red gumballs
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 simply use a hot glue gun to secure the ends of the ribbon on the back of the jar.
Step Three: Attach the Tags
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, make sure your printer is not adding any margins to the document.
If you’d like to make smaller mason jars you can as well! They would be equally as cute and you wouldn’t need to buy as much candy.
