How To Make a Christmas Mason Jar Decoration-Frugal Craft Idea
With Christmas already next month, I have been experimenting with making some frugal decorations with items I have on hand. Crafting your own decorations from upcycled materials is a great eco-friendly way to decorate your home. With a few extra craft supplies like glitter, and glue you can make a bunch of cute Christmas inspired decorations. I have so many mason jars on hand so I decided to make Christmas Mason Jar decorations.
Christmas mason jars are such a great way to decorate your home on a dime. They can be filled with so many different items from around the house to make them special. Filling them with buttons, candies, and trinkets came make them eye-catching centerpieces. I have even turned a small mason jar into a snow globe!
For this crafting occasion I decided to make Christmas Mason Jar Decorations with supplies I found at a thrift shop. I spent $.50 on 6 styrofoam balls, and $1.25 for a bag of pinecones. I had bronze glitter on hand, raffia, and the jars on hand from Summer pickling.
