This post is part of my design team status with Buttons Galore and More. Product partners also include May Arts and FloraCraft. Some materials were given to me for this post but all projects and opinions are my own. Supplies needed:
- Green button "buckle" and a tree button for the hat (all from Buttons Galore and More)
- Pom pom ribbon in red and white plus ivory woven burlap ribbon (all from May Arts)
- Mason jar with lid (mine is the tall quilted variety)
- Styrofoam cone (from FloraCraft)
- Sparkle pom pom
- Felt (red and tan used)
- Hot glue
Wrap your cone with red felt. I had to play with the felt for a while to get complete coverage from one sheet but it is possible. Cut off any excess and use hot glue to secure.
Use hot glue to add lid to bottom of foam cone.
Start adding pom pom trim to the bottom of your felt covering up where the lid meets the felt.
I then added a second row of pom pom fringe as well as the woven ribbon around the lid itself.
Cut tan felt to an "elf ear" like shape.
Fold ear and use hot glue to secure to both sides of cone.
The variety pack of buttons from Buttons Galore and More have a wide variety of button shapes and sizes. There was a green one in my package that had two large holes. These were just right for threading through the ivory woven ribbon. Yep. It looks just like a belt buckle. I wrapped the entire thing around my jar and secured with hot glue. I also added a fun Christmas tree button to my elf's hat. I liked just the one button sort of like a "pin" in his hat.
Add your gift (candy in my case) to your jar and then screw on your lid. Y'all don't forget to add a sparkly pom pom to the top of your elf hat as well. (Forgot a picture of that one!)
Who will you give your elf mason jar gift to? Make these quick and easy mason jar crafts for that hard to buy for person on your list. It is sure to put a smile on their face.
