Making the Thank you Mason

Although I’ve not jumped on the Mason Jar gift bandwagon before, as popular as they are, I thought it would be a fun container for all of the little goodies I’d grabbed for the boy’s teachers.

Mason jars are truly a multipurpose item. This craft is pretty quick to put together and quite easy as well. Your kids, of any age really, can help choose the decorations and colors. Get them involved in the greatness of gratitude.

  • Candy (any treats you’d like to give)
  • Duck tape Color Duckling mini rolls (your choice of style)
  • Adhesive backed fabric paper
  • Pom-Pom Trim
  • Printable “A-Mason” tag

Let’s get Started

  • First I stuffed the bottom of the jar with some fun little Duck Tape Duckling rolls, candy, and a couple of gift cards.

  • Before popping the lid on, I wanted to create a cute cover. I pulled out some adhesive-backed fabric paper and cut a circle the size of the jar’s lid.
  • Once the circle is cut, it was as simple as peeling off the backing and sticking it to the lid.

Such a simple thing, but the fabric/paper really finishes the jar off so that it looks nice.

  • Now wrap and tie your choice of pom-pom trim around the mouth of the jar just below the lid. I couldn’t just leave the jar plain, so I snagged some of the pom-pom trim I have been hoarding in my stash and tied it around the top of the jar.

Really? Is there anything better than pom-poms?

  • Add a little printable “You’re A-Mason” card. It’s sort of the finishing touch. It’s not just a jar. It’s an A-Mason jar!

Running a conference in the spring is great…EXCEPT, it puts me behind on some of the little things like laundry, grocery shopping and keeping up with the kids school. Every year, I am looking for an EASY teacher appreciation idea that I can put together at the last minute. Enter, the Mason Jar thank you.
