As much as I hate to say this, the Holidays are approaching.. and fast! I’ve seen so many DIY gifts that involved mason jars, but never ones that involved beauty products! I absolutely love this idea and the fact that you can customize them however you want depending on who you are gifting them to and can really get creative with the craft. I have put together two different options – One for the polish lover in your life and then another focused mainly on beauty products.
You can find the mason jars in your local craft store or buy them in bulk like I ended up doing at Target. You can fill them with all drugstore products, all high end products or mix & match! It’s totally up to you – and what makes this project so much fun! There are a TON of Holiday beauty gift sets that come out around this time that would be perfect to use for this DIY by separating the items! Sephora has a TON of great ones right now!
Beauty Product Jar
Hard Candy Single Baked Eyeshadow ($1 each – Found in store)
Beauty Product Jar Retail Value – $60
Nail Polish Lover Jar
Mini Hard Candy Polishes – $1 Each (Found in store)
And then I had a few cotton balls at the bottom as well!
Nail Product Jar Value – $25
How perfect would those nail jars be for a bunch of your girlfriends?
I am definitely going to be making up a bunch of different varieties and passing them along as gifts this year! There are SO many possibilities! Secret Santa, White Elephant, Teachers.. even kids!
Have you made mason jar gifts before? What did you put inside!?
