Do you have one of those friends that are incredibly difficult to buy for? You know the kind. The girl that has everything. The girl that can make ANYTHING. The girl that doesn’t need a thing. Well today, that is the girl we are crafting for! What could be better for her than a full lineup of craft projects, all set for her to get creative. Are you with me? Let’s craft!
Your supplies will vary greatly depending upon which crafts you decide to gift, but here are the basics for putting the craft set together.
Supplies for crafty mason jar gifts:
- Quart Canning Jars
- Decorative Cardstock or Thick Paper (I used the Martha Stewart Nature Line)
- Scissors and Hot Glue
- Core’dinations White Tags
- Yarn or Twine
The idea is to fill each jar with an assortment of crafting supplies so that your friend will be inspired to create something original. Each jar will hold the basic supplies for a craft, and your gift recipient can add his or her own touch to the craft. The jars can’t look like plain old canning jars though, can they? First things first — we have to cover up those hideous metal printed lids.
You can choose any craft supplies you want, but the jars look best when you coordinate colors and place items into the jars artfully. The most beautiful items should be placed vertically around the exterior of the jars, while the bulkier items can go towards the middle.

My other jars included supplies for cheese-making, burlap and lace wrapped votives and bottle cap pushpins.
What crafts do YOU think would fit well in a jar?
The finishing touch? A tag with basic how-to instructions for each project.
