INSTRUCTIONS

1. Mason Jar Gifts

You'll Need:
-- Mason jars (Try to find jars without a logo or that only have a logo on one side.)

-- Red electrical tape

-- White electrical tape

-- Black buttons

-- White buttons

-- Gold glitter tape

-- Piece of thin cardboard (I used poster board, but you could even use a cereal box!)

-- Ribbon (Plaid ribbon or striped — anything that will look like a tiny scarf.)

-- Black ribbed ribbon

-- Hot-glue

-- Red Hershey's Kisses treats

-- Green Hershey's Kisses treats

-- Silver Hershey's Kisses treats

Instructions for Elf Jar:

1. Clean mason jar inside and out and fill with green Hershey's Kisses treats. Close jar.

2. Wrap one line of white electrical tape around the bottom of the jar.

3. Wrap one line of red electrical tape over the white electrical tape, leaving yourself a thin strip of white at the bottom.

4. Stick end of red electrical tape to table and pull roll until there's enough to go around jar. In the middle of the line of tape, cut a tiny v-shape. Cut from roll and put v-shape down first on jar. Wrap the rest of the tape around the jar.
