Let me show you how I did these 5 Christmas mason jars.

First Christmas Mason Jar
I spray painted this pint jar with white spray paint. I like to use the flat but use the glossy if you like. To decorate this one, I simply wrapped some twine around the top and added a sprig of evergreen, some red berries and pine cones. Simple and cute!
This pint jar was spray painted a cream color. Because I want to use this jar for other seasons, I’m starting out with a removable Christmas wrap. I’ll make other seasonal wraps over the coming year.
I cut a length of ribbon long enough to go around the jar plus extra to turn the ends back. This keeps it from raveling and just look as better.
Next cut about an inch of 3/4” Velcro and attach one piece on the edge of the ribbon, wrap the ribbon around the jar and attach the other piece of Velcro.
It still seemed to need something so I filled it with greenery pics from Dollar Tree and Walmart.
Third Christmas Mason Jars
Number three got sprayed with glitter spray. Since it looked icy, I cut a few snowflakes from heavy cardstock then spritzed a little adhesive on them and stuck them on the inside. This was not as easy as I thought, but finally got them all in there. They kept sticking to my fingers instead of the jar. Take your time and be patient with them! To finish this one, I tied a piece I’d green ribbon around the top and tied a bow. Then I took some dollar tree snowflake spongy suckers and placed the end of the ribbons between 2 snowflakes. I apologize because I lost my in progress photos to share with you on this jar, but it’s pretty finished!
Number four is going to be a snowman. Begin by painting the jar with acrylic white paint. It will take a few coats so do as many as you want until it’s nicely covered. I did 3 coats.
Next simply hot glue 3 black buttons down the front and tie a scrap of fabric around the mouth of the jar for a scarf. Tada!
Last Christmas Mason Jar
Number five is painted with red acrylic paint. I put 3 coats on this jar after I applied the tree design and smoothed it down properly. When the last coat was dry, I carefully peeled the tree off. Although try as hard as I did, some of the paint came up in a few places. I was able to keep them pretty much in place and gave the jar a good coat of Mod Podge to prevent any more damage to the paint. Once it dried, I decorated it with a simple white ribbon wrapped around the top tied in a bow then filled it with Epsom salts up to the bottom of the tree and placed a battery powered tea light on top of Epsom salts.

So I hope you are inspired by one or all of my 5 Christmas mason jars. These beauties are simple to make and cost practically nothing to make especially if you have a good stash of crafting supplies.
