SUPER EASY Fill the mason jar with chocolate balls. Add googly eyes, red nose, ribbon and pipe cleaner antlers or do what I did. Just tie craft twine around the lid and glue on a simple red button. Elegant and festive! (and easy!)
SUPER EASY Fill the mason jar with marshmallows. Glue on 3 buttons. Tie a festive ribbon around the top for the scarf.
SUPER EASY Fill the mason jar with green chocolate candies. Glue a red heart on the front. Tie a red ribbon around the top.
SUPER EASY Fill the mason jar with red chocolate candies or cinnamon discs. Cut out a black belt out of construction paper or use a black ribbon. Use a pop top from a soda can for a belt buckle if you want to really take it up a notch! Glue on a button above the belt. Tie a red ribbon around the top or add a Santa Claus hat!
