Usually at Christmas I make up a little basket of goodies like bubble bath, face packs etc. to put in my guest bedrooms but when I saw this idea for “Pampering in a Jar” on the brilliant blog below, I just had to have a go …..
I’ve been saving large Douwe Egberts coffee jars for ages as they are just to decorative to throw away. All I’ve added is a very simple label using an A4 sheet of printable canvas and a bit of bling.
I haven’t filled it completely yet, but when I am on my travels I will be looking for miniature versions of popular products in Boots, Superdrug and Asda, especially if they have a 3 for 2 offer on.
As an extra touch I’ve popped a Yankee Candle tea light into the lid of the jar, so that when my guests are having a little pamper they are also surrounded with beautiful wafts of perfume!
It’s well worth having a look at Tonia’s blog as she has a lot of other brilliant ideas for gifts in jars along with a lot of other ideas too
Jars are really versatile for crafting ideas but I HATE trying to remove all the sticky stuff off them ….. until I found this in Aldi - £2.99 a bottle ….. its brilliant!
