Use free printable mason jar labels to make inexpensive and easy homemade gifts for Christmas. These are perfect for teachers, neighbors, friends and co-workers.
I love making homemade gifts for people especially at Christmas. But I usually get a little over ambitious and never quite complete all the gifts I want to make. I end up scrambling in a store at the last minute to find small gifts.
I happen to have a small stash of mason jars in my garage, which would make perfect gifts if I could ever figure out what to put in them and how to make them pretty. And now, with these adorable printables, I have the perfect solution for inexpensive and easy homemade gifts.
To start, simply print the mason jar labels. We have two sizes – 2 inch and 3 inch.
The 2 inch will fit smaller canning jars like pint or jelly jars with the normal opening. Don't panic about the yellow. That's just there to help get the labels cut out correctly.
The 3 inch labels fit the larger wide mouth quart size jars.
You can use any glass jars you have on hand, but Ball and Kerr make some very pretty jars and lids that would be gorgeous for gifting. Check out the green jars, the green and red rings and the snowflake lids! Mix and match the red jars with the green lids for a Christmas colored gift.
Carefully cut out the labels using scissors. These are a lot easier to cut if you use a 2 inch and 3 inch round paper punch. I, of course, couldn't find mine so I just used scissors.
Affix the labels to the lids of the mason jar. Double sided tape or glue will work. I used Glue Dots because I love them for everything! You can tie twine or ribbon around the jars to add a little more decoration.
Now that you have these cute little jars, what do you put in them? Check out these ideas:
