Mason Jar Holiday Treats

Mason Jar Holiday Gift Bowdabra BlogI love making little gifts or party favors for friends. One of my favorite projects is to take a Mason jar or any empty glass jar and fill it up with treats. The Mini Bowdabra comes in handy for these projects because I can top them with the perfect little bow. Enjoy this super easy, under 30 minute craft. I gather all of my supplies and make a lot of these at once. Then I have them on hand to pass out.

Materials Needed:

  • Mini Bowdabra Kit
  • Bowdabra Bow Wire
  • Various pieces of festive ribbon, bakers twine
  • Mason jar with lid
  • Cupcake liners
  • Cookie cutter
  • Candy


1. Begin by gathering all the craft supplies.

10. Fill jar with confetti, scraps of paper, etc and candy. Add a cupcake liner to the lid of the Mason jar and screw lid on jar. If using a different type of recycled jar without the opening then skip this step.
