Do you need an extra special personalized gift for someone for less than $10? I am here with three different variations of DIY shrink plastic mason jar gifts that are all under $10 each. So pick and choose which gift will suit your recipient, order your supplies from ConsumerCrafts, and get busy giving handmade this holiday season!
- White Shrink Plastic ($3.97 for six sheets — all of the gifts you see above were created with just one sheet!)
- Colored Pencils ($2.27 — I found Crayola brand to work best)
- Scissors (on hand)
- Hole Punch ($1.57)
- Mason Jar Printable (sorry about the one size being cut off y’all I could not get it fixed on the google doc — just free hand in the bottom!)
Put in the oven according to the package directions. These literally take 3-5 minutes to shrink up to awesomeness. You can see how much each one will shrink in the picture below. See how light the colors are in the picture above but how vibrant they are once that plastic shrinks like magic.
Total for 2 necklaces = $9.88
Total for 2 key rings = $8.28
The hole in the plastic itself turned out a little small to use on the key rings. You may increase the size with a large hole punch and skip the jump ring on this one. I just used a jump ring to attach my mason jar to my key ring.
Next up is some gift tags or handmade ornaments that also make great gifts. For these, you will also need some canvas cord in aqua ($1.17). Total for the gift tags is $7.41.
