Jingle Bell Jar - Craft Idea

Review: Jingle Bell Jar

I don’t even know how I came across this site, but you have to go to the Inspired Room and check out the Jingle Bell Jars, I just love these! In fact I love them so much I decided to make one of my own.

Melissa used a canning jar, but I decided why not use a regular old jar?  I have plenty of those on hand.  This one had pickles in it originally and we’ve been using it as a drinking glass. Melissa also used jute twine, but I just used silver ribbon. (I should have used hay twine!)

I had almost everything on hand, too.  After Christmas I shop Target’s 90% off sale and I always pick up any decoration-type materials left behind. I’ve had the silver jingle bells for at least three years if not longer. I keep Epsom salts on hand because I use them for luxurious hot bath soaks (great detoxifier!).  And of course I had a hot glue gun with glue sticks in my sewing cabinet.  It took about fifteen minutes to make this one, and now I have a pretty decorative candle for our dinner table.

The only thing I was missing was a white candle!  But I think Mr. A has some stashed somewhere.  I had little brown candles which I found on clearance at a grocery store.

The really fun thing about these decorative jars is you can customize them for the different seasons of the year. Melissa has one for Valentine’s Day that is just adorable, and her summer version is called a Starfish Mason Jar.

Jingle Bell Jar - Craft Idea
My Jingle Bell Jar surrounded by my beautiful brass starred candle holders I found a few years ago at a Savers thrift store. I don't burn candles very often, but I love my unique holders.

I love simple holiday ideas, and I really love it when I can use craft items that I already have on hand.  I especially love it when I know where to look for the things I bought the previous year!  We don’t do a lot of decorating or entertaining during the holidays, but it is nice to have a few pretty items out to make things look more festive and that is usually why I buy items at 90% off. For the next year!

I think I might make a few of these Jingle Bell Jars for some of my friends and family. They are just so cute!

Speaking of gifts, here are some links to other gift ideas:

    @The Digerati Life, I see you posted about the turkey placeholders. Very cute! It does take time to do, but is really worth it. I really have enjoyed the Jingle Bell jar decoration to the table for our Thanksgiving dinner.
