Thank You Jars

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, a few friends and I decided to make thank you jars. Instead of a traditional thank you card, this was a fun and clever way to tell someone thanks! We love the color blue, so all the jars were filled with assorted blue candy 🙂

Shopping List:

  • Burlap
  • Fray Check
  • Ribbon
  • Color coordinated candy
  • Small mason jars like these
  • Cardstock for circles and letters
  • Hot glue gun

Start by cutting the burlap into strips 1 foot long, and 1 1/2 inches wide. Use fray check on all sides.

Then cut the ribbon into 1 foot long pieces.

Glue the burlap around the center of the mason jar. I used dots of glue the whole way around the top and bottom to make sure the burlap was secure.

Glue the ribbon on top of the burlap and let dry.

Now you can add the letters. My “thanks” letters are Cooper Black font, size 112. To make the letters stand out, I backed them on a white circle. Use a small dot of glue so it doesn’t show through the paper.

And add the candy!!
