Gifts In A Jar - My Collection

I wanted to collect all the ideas I could on making gifts in a jar.  I even wanted ideas on how to recycle/upcycle jars into useful items.  Here is my collection of wonderful things I have found.

Sometimes the Jar isn't the gift, but it is how the gift is presented (such as for giving flowers or candles). Jars are also great for decorating and displays.

Candy Cane Playdough

Earth to Glass Canning

Candy Cane Playdough
3 1/2-4 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
1 tablespoon cream of tarter (
found with the spices on the baking isle)
2 1/2 tablespoons oil
2 cups of water
food coloring (1-2oz. bottle for red batch)
1-2oz. peppermint extract

1. Heat water to boiling in a medium saucepan.
2. Measure a generous 3 1/2 cups flour into a medium-large mixing bowl (one that holds at least 8 cups.) Reserve extra to add if the dough is too sticky. Mix in the salt and cream of tartar.
3. Once the water is boiling, whisk in the oil and food coloring. Remove from heat and add peppermint extract. Remember that it will smell strong now, but will be diluted greatly once mixed with the flour.
4. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour the water mixture in. Stir with a spoon until flour is incorporated, then turn it onto the counter or a cutting board and knead until smooth.
5. Layer each color in mason jar, pressing down gently (You don’t want to smash them together too much, so they are easy to separate and play with.)
6. Print tags below and attach with twine, yarn, or ribbon.
