It's that time of the year again. It's time for a joyous reunion with friends and family! Need a last minute gift idea or want to spice up your holiday beverages? Holiday Mason Jars will have your loved ones gushing with merriment! Liven up your holiday party with a few simple steps to create your very own Snowman, Santa, or Elf D.I.Y. Holiday Mason Jars.
Here's what you'll need:
Hot Glue Gun or Tape
Scissors or Xacto knife
Ribbons or fabric
Milk or Eggnog
Cranberry Juice or Fruit Punch
STEP 1: PREPARE YOUR MATERIALS
The first step is to create the clothing for your Holiday Mason Jars! For the Snowman, all you would need are buttons and a piece of fabric or ribbon to fit as a scarf.
For a jolly Santa, we used construction paper to create a belt. Cut a piece of black construction paper in the shape of a long rectangle so that it can fully wrap around the mason jar. Then, cut another piece of construction paper in the shape of a square for his buckle.
For the Elf's outfit, we used both buttons and construction paper. Simply cut construction paper into two long rectangles so they can wrap around the mason jar. On one of the papers, cut a small triangle in the center to create a nice collar for the Elf.
STEP 2: PLACE THE MATERIALS ON THE MASON JARS
The best way to make sure the materials will remain on the mason jar is to use a glue gun! If you don't have one, that's not a problem! Tape will also do! Both of these methods should keep your holiday decorations on through the end of the year, but come off without damaging your mugs so you can continue to use them year round.
STEP 3: FINISHING TOUCHES
The next step is to add your own flair and decorate the clothing as you like! Maybe even write a loved one's name to add a personal touch. If you want to add more color, we highly recommend taking a peak at our own selection of mason jars! We have color variations for our 3-piece 20oz mason jars. Our green, red, and blue mason tumblers as well as our blue, pink, and purple mason tumblers are all available for you to get started on your DIY project.
STEP 4: PREPARE YOUR BEVERAGES
The final step is to pour your beverages into the respective mason jars. Milk or eggnog would be splendid drinks to make a frosty white snowman! As for the elf and Santa jars, cranberry juice or fruit punch would give a perfect blend of red for a warm winter coat!
After you've completed these 4 steps, you're done! You just made your very own D.I.Y. Holiday Mason Jar! Happy Gifting! For more DIY projects, make your way over to the DIY section in the Cupture Blog.
