Glass Cookie Jars
If you're hosting a holiday cookie exchange, your guests are going to need a way to bring home the delicious assortment of cookies they'll gather at your party.
Tools & Materials:
- One-quart wide-mouth glass jars (available at craft and hardware stores; purchase one per child)
- Adhesive-backed white felt
- White pom-poms
- Small pine cones (available at craft stores; two per jar)
- Brown pipe cleaners
- Narrow red satin ribbon
- Approximately 1/2" red linen ribbon
- White paper
- Standard hole punch
- Craft tags (one per jar)
- Letter stamps (optional)
- Hot glue gun
- White craft glue
- Use the lid of one jar to trace circles on the white felt (one per jar you're making). Adhere a circle of white felt to the top of each lid. Cut a long strip of white felt for each jar to wrap around the edge of the lid.
- Attach a layer of white pom-poms to each lid with hot glue.
- Use hot glue to attach pairs of pine cones to make the shape of a deer's head and body. Twist together pipe cleaners and wedge them into the pine cones to create each deer's tail, antlers and legs.
- Use your hole punch and white paper to create a pair of eyes for each deer and use craft glue to attach them to the deer's heads. Tie a small length of red ribbon around each deer's neck.
- Use hot glue to wrap a decorative band of red linen ribbon around the edge of each jar lid, on top of the white felt. Glue a reindeer on the top of each lid.
- Use stamps or pretty lettering to put the name of one of your guests on each tag. Attach one tag to each jar with twine.
