For those of you going to holiday parties, spending Christmas with your boyfriend’s family, or have a large group of friends you want to give a gift to – here is an easy, but cute, DIY gift idea: potpourri Mason jars. If you’re sitting at your computer trying to figure out what potpourri (pote-pour-e) is, it’s that yummy smelling assortment of stuff that gets put into a baggie and placed in your sock drawer. While potpourri bags usually get forgotten about until move-out day, these jars can be put on display and uncapped to make any room look and smell amazing – plus the name makes them seem fancy!
What you’ll need:
– Mason jars
– Chalkboard spray paint (optional, see my post on Mason jars)
– Small gift bags (I chose gold/silver sparkly ones from Michael’s craft store)
– Bag of potpourri (available at most home goods, craft, or hardware store)
– Red ribbon (or any color of your choice)
Step-by-step instructions aren’t really needed for this easy craft, so here are some explanatory photos instead:
