Craft Inspiration Jars | DAY 3: Made By Hand

Pin It


Do you have one of those friends that are incredibly difficult to buy for? You know the kind. The girl that has everything. The girl that can make ANYTHING. The girl that doesn't need a thing. Well today, that is the girl we are crafting for! What could be better for her than a full lineup of craft projects, all set for her to get creative. Are you with me? Let's craft!

Your supplies will vary greatly depending upon which crafts you decide to gift, but here are the basics for putting the craft set together.
Supplies for crafty mason jar gifts:
*All supplies provided by Consumer Crafts and Crafts Unleashed

The idea is to fill each jar with an assortment of crafting supplies so that your friend will be inspired to create something original. Each jar will hold the basic supplies for a craft, and your gift recipient can add his or her own touch to the craft. The jars can't look like plain old canning jars though, can they? First things first -- we have to cover up those hideous metal printed lids.

Simply trace a circle out of your cardstock, cut and secure to the metal lid with a tiny dot of hot glue.
Screw the lid on and you are ready to move on to the fun part -- filling those jars!

You can choose any craft supplies you want, but the jars look best when you coordinate colors and place items into the jars artfully.
The most beautiful items should be placed vertically around the exterior of the jars, while the bulkier items can go towards the middle.

 (Full Soap Making Process is RIGHT HERE!)

3. Mini Cardmaking Set


My other jars included supplies for cheese-making, burlap and lace wrapped votives and bottle cap pushpins.
What crafts do YOU think would fit well in a jar?
The finishing touch? A tag with basic how-to instructions for each project.
 
Now the only question is - which friend to gift these jars to?
What can YOU dream up for your crafty friends?  Please feel free to share your ideas and links in the FORUM!
