So let’s go make a gift!

Mason Jars were produced for canning peaches and pickles. Now these versatile glass jars found in most grocery stores are increasingly being used for homemade gifts! The jars, sold by the dozen for quart-size, cost less than $1 a piece.

But don’t just stop at Mason jars!  You can recycle other jars too!  How about pickle jars, pasta jars, or other fun shaped glass jars?

    Are your mulling spices actually for cider or just a kind of potpourri?

      Hi Paula!

      It depends on what you use in the spice mix. The tutorial for these gift jars uses a mulling spice pack from World Market that is meant for either cider or use as potpourri. Hope that helps!
