Mini Mason Jar Stocking Stuffer: Mason Jar Snowman.
The Christmas stocking.
It may just be my favorite.
Think about it. The Christmas stocking is the equivalent of finding a twenty dollar bill in your coat pocket after being stored away for a long spring, summer, and fall.
Now granted, the opening of the stocking doesn’t require a three season wait.
But discovering the stocking after you’ve burned through the presents under the tree …
and the disappointment that there are no more presents left to open begins to take hold …
is nothing short of magical.
Filling your child-sized heart with hope. Hope that more presents are always around the next corner.
Or stuffed inside the next stocking. 🙂
So here’s hoping these mini mason jars stocking stuffers … dressed up as mini snowman and stuffed with candy (or mints) … will fill those stocking stuffer hopeful kids with hope. And joy. 🙂
How to Make a Snowman Mini Mason Jar Stocking Stuffer
Start with mini mason jars. These jars hold 4 ounces.
Paint the mini mason jars lids black. Mine took 2 coats. You can also spray paint them.
Add three dots of glue to jars for buttons. I used a multi-surface glue that is quick dry, but also offers time to adjust and re-adjust your button placement.
Attach buttons to the jars. I used mini buttons found at the craft store.
Cut thin strips of red felt for the scarf. My strips measure 1/2″ (width) by 12″ (length).
Tie a scarf knot around mason jar (just under lid). Trim edges out to look scarf-like.
Insert candy of choice into Mini Mason Jar. I chose Tic Tacs. But anything white works.
Insert into stocking on Christmas Eve.
Remind kids on Christmas morning to check their stockings. Wait for their delight.

Can you use acrylic paint on the jars ?
Absolutely! I use acrylic paint all the time. Just make sure you get Acrylic and not Enamel or Multi-Surface. Also, you can’t submerge in water because the paint isn’t permanent. I also suggest using a clear coat spray sealant once dry.
