This is one of the easiest mason jar gifts you’ll ever make! This jar includes handmade magnets that take minutes to make. Simple and cute!
Are you looking for a quick hostess gift idea? I’m all about handmade gifts for those situations! If you are too, I have something REALLY easy, quick, and budget friendly for you. DIY magnets in a mason jar!
When I tell you this project is cheap and super simple, I’m not even joking. But the best part is that it’s not cheap looking. In fact, I think it looks great, don’t you? You can obviously customize with the papers of your choice, just for the recipient. Here’s how you do it.
Mason Jar Gifts: Easy Handmade Magnets
Gather These Supplies
- Podgeable glass domes
- Mod Podge Gloss
- Small mason jar – 4 oz.
- Paper scraps in six patterns – and a piece for the mason jar lid
- Craft magnets – 6
- Craft glue
These little Podgeable glass domes are the secret to my project! You can get them online or at Michaels (which is where I got mine). Yes, they are real glass and pretty awesome.
Place a medium layer of Mod Podge on the top of the scrapbook paper (cover the entire thing) . . .
. . . then place the dome down and press/smooth. If Mod Podge comes out the sides, wipe it away with your brush. The decoupage medium might look a little cloudy underneath, but it’s okay – it will dry clear.
Repeat with all of your glass domes and let them dry for a few hours.
All you’re going to do is make a paper insert for the lid. Just trace it, cut it, and insert into the lid ring with the pattern facing up to the top, and place the lid insert in as well. You can secure it if you want to; I never do and it sticks in there just fine.
