Rustic Mason Jar Gifts You Can Make

Homemade jar gifts are especially fun to gift at Christmas to teachers or that hard to buy for person on your list.  They also make a great hostess gift for all of those holiday parties you will be attending!  Since many of the mason jar gift ideas are for renewable items like food or soaps, they make a perfect gift for almost anyone.

Not only are the contents of the jars fun and decorative, but you can also add some embellishments to the outside of the jars to make them especially eye appealing as they sit out on a counter or shelf.  A quick and easy way to give any jar gift a little rustic feel is to simply wrap the top with burlap and tie it off with a few strands of raffia like I did with the pictured canned peppers.

You can check out the recipes for making canned peppers and other relishes for gifts here.

Here are some more easy mason jar gifts that you can make with a rustic twist:

Here is a gift idea for spiced nuts by Celebrations.  The warm leaf decor would cozy up any room, especially in the Fall.  This would be a great gift to give someone hostessing a Thanksgiving meal.  However, I think that this type of decor is timeless.  You could even make it a bit more neutral by tying it off with some twine.

I love this idea for granola by Design Sponge.  The rough canvas fabric with iron on labels is perfect, especially with being tied off with the thick jute string.  The simple rustic design is still so eye appealing!

You can’t get any more rustic than nature!  This little herb garden is a gift that will keep on giving.  I love the idea by Weeping Cherries.  Just tie a burlap bow around the neck of the jar and you are all set!

I love how these jars are decorated by Tip Nut with the paper, leaves and string.

Finally, if you know a sewer, this gift would be an adorable idea.  I would love to have one of these just sitting on a shelf in my craft room. 

All of these mason jar gift ideas would look especially rustic and warm if you use vintage mason jars.  The unique shapes sizes and colors that you can find help to make each gift unique.

Happy Crafting!
