DIY Craft: How To Make Mini Filled Mason Jar Favors!

Hi There!
Getting ready for parties can be very intense and if you are anything like me, I like to make everything for any parties we host!  Crazy right?  Well, not when you are a craft enthusiast...LOL!!  I crafted these small mason jars and filled each one with special gifts for my guests. You can do the same and they are so easy to make!  I wouldn't suggest filling the jars with any food items since this craft requires that you use paint.  I filled my jars with bracelets that I made with beads and alphabet blocks.  I spelled the names out of each one of my guests and made elastic bracelets, one size fits all!! They fit perfectly in each jar.  Another good idea is filling each jar with potpourri.  Now you have instantly created an air freshener.  When not in use, place the top back on the jar to preserve the potpourri.  You can also store jewelry in these jars too.  Just be sure to wash the inside out first to remove any chemicals from the paint.  These small crafts are wonderful gifts and great keepsakes.  Your guests will love them!  Here's how to make them.

You will need one small can of paint, craft twine and lid stickers.  All of this can be purchased at Michaels Craft Store.

You will also need two tubes of craft paint and a sea foam sponge.

Spray paint each jar and after drying, sponge paint lightly with the first craft paint and let dry.  Next, sponge paint with the second craft paint and let dry.
Prepare your lids by placing a sticker on the top of each.

Add twine, add gifts and place lids on each jar.  Get ready for the party and have fun!!
