Do you have a crafter on your gift list this holiday season? My husband does– ME! If you are not a crafter yourself, then you may be overwhelmed at what to purchase the crafting lover on your list. The world of crafting and craft supplies can seem intimidating with all the different papers and glues and glitter. If you are unsure what to purchase your favorite crafter, I always recommend “consumable items.” Consumable items are things like markers, Sharpies, and colored pencils that crafters use and need again.
My mom actually gifted me the Sharpie Permanent Markers Limited Edition Gift Pack from Target. The kids and I both used it all year long, and we have already purchased this year’s Sharpie Permanent Markers Limited Edition Gift Pack. They were thrilled that there were other crafting gift packs– the Mr. Sketch Scented Combo Gift Pack for them and the Sharpie Permanent Markers Limited Edition Gift Pack for me!
Even when purchasing a gift, I always like to include a little something handmade. Crafters ALWAYS need organization products and ideas, and this Mason Jar Holder is a cute and inexpensive gift idea that you can gift with the Sharpies!
Mason Jar Holder Gifting Idea Supplies:
- Ball Mason Jars (find them in the housewares section at Target)
- Wood plank (I found the one in this tutorial at Target in the craft section. If you have a piece of wood at home, feel free to use it. Nothing beats free, right!)
- Hose clamps (These need to be a size to fit your mason jar. Measure the diameter of the mouth of the Ball Mason Jar and purchase hose clamps based upon this measurement.)
- Painter’s tape
- Gold Spray paint
- Paint for the wood paint
- (2) Screws
- Drill with drill bit
- Your choice of hardware for hanging or a removable hanging product
Steps to Make:
First, prep any surfaces that are going to be painted. I painted the Ball Mason Jars and the wood plank. Make sure the surfaces are clean and dry. For the plank, I used a paint brush and applied white paint to the plank.
For the Ball Mason Jars, I applied painter’s tape around the top half of the jar and spray painted the bottom part gold. I also spray painted the hose clamps to match.
Let the paint dry thoroughly. Remove any tape.
Determine where you want the mason jars to be on the board. This may be different for everyone based upon personal preference and the type of board that you are using. Once you have decided, place a small pencil mark where you are going to be drilling the hose clamp. Use a drill bit to make a pilot hole over these two holes.
Use the drill and a screw to screw the hose clamps into the two places where you have made the holes. Pushing through the hose clamp does take some arm muscle, so do not be discouraged if it takes a few tries to get this step done.
If adding hanging hardware to the back of the plank, go ahead and do this before adding the mason jars.
Secure the Ball Mason Jars into the clamps.
This is a cute piece for any craft room, or, like in my case, the art table.
