What I love about this new trend is that mason jars aren’t just for the kitchen nowadays, you can place it anywhere, use it as food or beverage container, and add a vintage touch to the room. Mason jars, unlike before, can be bought to your nearest stores (even the groceries have it). So it is pretty much an easy to find, beautiful do-it-yourself material. We’ve gathered unique DIY ideas to help you decorate your home this Christmas season with mason jars, so prepare your jars and art stuff because we have a lot of work to do!
Santa Mason Jars
Look at this cutie jar that looks like Santa’s belly! You can easily create this jar with your old mason jars (or even your old sandwich spread containers), some paint, and ribbons! This can be done in 3 easy steps, gather materials, pain on them to look like Santa, add finishing touches (ribbons), and voila, you have your very own Santa jar! Your kids will enjoy doing this with you, I guarantee.

Elf Mason Jar Treats
I have seen some Christmas jar DIY ideas that claims they are the easiest to do. But is there anything easier to do than just stuffing your jar with red candy, putting a belt on it, and it’s done? You can make this your holiday giveaway to your officemates, friends, or you can suggest this to your company as your company’s give away. If you own a store, this would be a great token for all your loyal customers. I’m pretty sure they will be more loyal than ever.

Mason Jar Candle Holder
This jar may not be one of the colorful decors you will find in Pinterest, but it surely is one of the most creative! Candle holders usually are not the most fabulous decors you will see in a house, this isn’t too, but it will surely catch everyone’s attention because of the printed piece attached to it. You can replace the piece with pictures, old magazines, or pretty much whatever you like. Don’t forget to add the pinecone to add a little bit more Christmas spirit.

Knitted Mason Jars
This is one of the most adorable jars I have ever seen. Don’t you agree? Why don’t you try to dress up your jars too this holiday season? It’s easy, you just need to gather up your old sweaters (if you think they are too old to be donated to the less fortunate) and your old lace table cloths, practice your sewing skills by sewing some parts to make your jar sweater fit your jar. Once you’re done, you now have the most beautiful jar this Christmas. It’s best if you put on some lights in it too, so it will be highlighted wherever you put it.

Mason Jar Centerpieces
Not all the pretty things in the world are expensive, look at this table top décor, you can easily do it and it’s almost free because you can find the materials at home! You just need a jar, transparent if possible, a few pieces of cranberries (or any other berries if you want), a floating candle, and a ribbon. You can also use old table cloths instead of ribbons if you want. Fill half of the jar with water, put the berries, put the candle in the middle, and add the ribbon to make it more beautiful. It didn’t take 10 minutes of your life, right? I recommend you try this one!

We already know that Mason jars can be a perfect candle holder, too. But who would’ve thought that you can make it an advent calendar.

Recommend it to your friends, too. It’s a creative way to encourage your kids to learn stories from the bible.
