Ball jars are used for just about everything these days. What once was a container for food has become a decorative item and for numerous other things. I saw an idea on Pinterest and decided to make these as gifts this year for girlfriends.
I gathered my Ball jars and shopped for items to use strictly for pampering. What woman this time of year couldn't use a little pampering? The holidays are so stressful at times with shopping and decorating.
I shopped the travel size section in Wally World for the items I used.
I began with fuzzy socks and added lotion, body scrub, hand cream, lip balm, foot cream and chocolates. Whatever you can think of that will fit in the jars. I bought a couple of items that wouldn't fit in the opening. I should have used the wide mouth jars.
I first arranged the items around the outside of the jar. I added the socks in the middle of the jar being careful to keep everything upright. I poked the Hershey Kisses in between everything.
I cut circles of scrapbook paper to cover the top of the lids. I then made a label on the computer also using my scrapbook paper and punches. I tied the jars up with fun Christmas ribbon.
These were fun to put together. I will pop them in a gift bag and use Christmas nail files (that wouldn't fit in the jars) to tie to the ribbon on the bags.
I think my girlfriends will like their pampering in a jar. I know I could use one myself about now!
Thanks for visiting.
