DIY Snowman Mason Jar Christmas Gifts
I chose to fill my jar with white chocolate pretzels, as I’m totally unable to resist those buggers… something about the salty-sweet combo gets me every time!
You could also fill them with white wrapped candies, white gumballs, or muddy buddies (that’s Chex coated in chocolate and tossed in powdered sugar- google it, you can find a recipe easily).

How do You Make a Snowman Mason Jar?
Step One: Fill with Pretzels (or White candy)
Fill the jars with your choice of candy or treat. Secure the lid that came with the mason jars. These would be so cute done in a pint size and filled with tiny marshmallows to use in hot chocolate.
Step Two: Glue the Buttons to the Jar
Next, use a bit of hot glue to glue 3 buttons to the front of the jar.
Step Three: Make a Scarf
To finish it off tie a scrap of red fleece around the neck for a scarf. My scarf is about 2″ wide. To make the scarf cut a scrap of fleece or felt 2x the width of the jar. Fray the ends with scissors. If you don’t have a scrap of fleece fabric, you can also use several strands of red yarn.
Step Four: The Tag
Print out the tag. The last thing you’ll want to do is print out your Snowman “I’d Melt for You” Gift tag! If you want to make the gift a bit more “special” you could easily attach a gift card under the tag!
Lastly, just attach the jar’s lid as you normally would. If you’re feeling extra crafty you can spray paint the lid black or white, but I like to leave mine gold.
Quick and Easy!
