Love giving gifts? If you’re anything like me, that’s probably your favorite part about the holidays. I never really think about what I want anymore, because I get too excited thinking about what I can give to others instead. It’s so much fun watching someone’s reaction when they open a gift I made just for them. Cookies are always delicious, but I get sick of baking early in the season so I thought it’d be fun to switch it up by creating something not so sweet. I had some rosemary from my garden that I dried and thought it would make the perfect gift for a friend or neighbor. You could use any dried herb or even make your own mix if you’re feeling up for it. Keep scrolling to learn how to create your own super cute Christmas DIY jar gifts!
Step 1. First you’ll dry the herbs if you’re starting with fresh ones. If you have a dehydrator, use that following the instructions it came with. Don’t have a dehydrator? No worries! All you have to do is place your herbs on a pan and place them in the oven at the lowest temperature for 2 – 4 hours or until dry.
Step 2. Place your dried herbs inside the jar. If any of the stems are too long, use a pair of scissor to trim them down.
Step 3. Print the labels using the Season’s Greetings Christmas Printable. After you cut out the labels, you’ll use the hole punch to create a hole so you can attach the label to the jar.
Step 4. Finally, cut a length of string and tie the label around the lid of the jar.
