I had so much fun making my Fall Mason Jars, I knew I wanted to make Christmas Mason Jars! And Christmas decor would not be complete without Santa ๐Ÿ™‚ I thought Santa would be a little tougher to make, but he is actually really easy. You just need one color of paint, red, black ribbon, and silver pipe cleaners. You can have your Santa Mason Jar ready to be displayed or for gift-giving in under 10 minutes (not including dry time).

I have the tutorials on how to make all those adorable Christmas Mason Jars listed below, so be sure to check them all out.

Here’s what you need to make Santa Mason Jars:

  • Red Spray Paint – I used Rust Oleum Semi-Gloss, you can pick up a can at Walmart for under $4 or on Amazon
  • Mason Jars – I got a 12 pack at Walmart for under $9, or check on Amazon
  • Black Ribbon – I used one with a bit of silver in it, I got it on clearance at Jo Ann Fabrics.
  • Silver Pipe Cleaners – You can find these at any craft store, Walmart, etc. I happened to have a few at the house and you only need a partial one for each Santa you make
  • Glue – I used hot glue, but super glue would work too

Here’s how to make your Santa Mason Jars:

  • Take the lid off the mason jar, and then spray the entire jar red – I place my hand inside the jar partially while spraying
  • Allow the jar to dry – mine was ready to go in about an hour or two. I let it dry outside, but I do live in Florida ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Using a hot glue gun, glue the “belt” onto your jar – measure out your ribbon before gluing it on
  • Using scissors or wire cutters, cut a 2-3 inch piece of silver pipe cleaner – you may have to make your longer depending on how big your black ribbon is, mine is about 1/2 inch.
  • Shape the silver pipe cleaner into a square, with one small twist, attach the ends together
  • Using a hot glue gun (or super glue) glue on your “belt buckle”
  • Fill with kisses if desired

  • Mason Jars – I got a 12 pack at Walmart for under $9, or check on Amazon
  • Googly Eyes – Under $2 at Walmart
  • Red Pom-Poms – Under $2 at Walmart
  • Brown Pipe Cleaners – You can find these at any craft store, Walmart, etc.
  • Glue – I used hot glue, but super glue would work too

Here’s how to make your Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Mason Jars:

  • Take the lid off the mason jar, and then spray the entire jar brown – I place my hand inside the jar partially while spraying
  • Allow the jar to dry – mine was ready to go in about an hour or two. I let it dry outside
  • Using a hot glue gun, glue the eyes and “nose” (the red pom-pom) onto your jar
  • To make the reindeer antlers, you will need 2 brown pipe cleaners. Twist the two ends together so you have one long pipe cleaner. Wrap the pipe cleaner around the top of your jar, starting at the front and ending in the back. Do one simple twist in the ends of the pipe cleaner so that it will stay up on the jar. Gently bend the remainder of the pipe cleaner on both sides to resemble antlers.

I love decorating in snowflakes and light blue over the holidays, so I also made a simple light blue jar and attached a silver bow. You just need the light blue paint, mason jars, and silver ribbon to make this one. Simple and classy!

  1. Those are adorable. I love glitter. It’s so festive looking and with the holiday lights, it makes me feel like a kid again.

    • You’re welcome, they are so easy to make and I am definitely giving them as gifts this year ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you try them too!

  2. I really like mason jar crafts, they are cute. What I like the most is that the majority can be made by kids. To me, there is nothing better than a gift a child has made. I have ornaments from nieces and nephews who have kids of their own now@

  3. This would be a perfect project for our after school play group (for young kids who need a safe place to be /play until a parent is home /able to pick them up.)

    It would be easy to find volunteers to help out and most of the supplies too. We could turn them into “goody jars”” as gift for the needy over the holiday. Thank you ~ you’ve just given a lot of good ideas that will benefit all!

  4. These are so CUTE that I had to pin this for my daughter. She loves making creative things out of Mason Jars. She buys them by the case. For Mother’s Day, she painted a jar with spring colors. Then she glued a picture of her family on the jar & used fancy fonts & different colors for each family member’s name. Finally she put a beautiful bouquet of fake flowers in the jar. The beautiful jar is on my kitchen window sill. THANKS!

  5. These are such cute ideas, I really love those jars you did, I was planning on thursday to spend sometime doing some of mine own, a little different but I do love the way yours came out..
