Hi there! Kristyn from Lil’ Luna here!!

I’m so happy to be here on Infarrantly Creative today. I adore their amazing creativity!! I can’t wait to share with you a simple and inexpensive but CUTE gift idea.

Not sure about you, but once the holidays hit I’m always looking for a fun and easy gift to hand out to my friends and neighbors.

After seeing the Christmas themed M&M’s at the store, I knew just what to do!! You can use either Mason Jars, empty Crush bottles or any other idea you can find.

Supplies You Need:

  • – Mason Jars, Empty Crush or IBC Cream Soda Pop Bottle Set
  • – Paint
  • – Hot Glue
  • – Printables (available here)
  • – Metal rings
  • – Ribbon or twine
  • OPTIONAL: Washi tape (if you want to add it to your box)

How To Make the Gift Jars

1. Begin by washing out each pop bottle and letting dry completely. I usually let mine dry for a day or two.

2. Fill your bottles with Christmas (or Christmas-colored) treats.

4. Add scrapbook paper to each pop bottle. I cut mine to be about 3 inches x 9 inches. Hot glue around and add the printable to the middle front.

5. Paint (I spray painted) your box the color you want it. Let dry. Embellish it if desired (I used a little Washi Tape).
