Save some money and make your own Christmas decor using mason jars! These festive DIY mason jar Christmas decorations include ornaments, candleholders, centerpieces, outdoor decor, and more.

What you will need to make these mason jar decorations:

  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks. A mini glue gun is all you will need. They are about $3 at Walmart and the glue sticks are $1 a pack.
  • Mod Podge and foam brush
  • Scissors
  • Tape (e.g. painter’s tape)
  • Paint brush. You can get them for $0.50-$1 at Walmart.
  • Wire cutters for the florals. You can get wire cutters at Dollar Tree.
  • Acrylic paint or spray paint. You can get small bottles of acrylic paint for $0.50 at Walmart.

Craft Supplies You Can Get at Dollar Tree:

  • twine (jute, cotton, red or green)
  • candles (tealight, votive, pillar, jar, battery operated, etc)
  • epson salt (used for snow effect)
  • ribbons – they have a large selection of Christmas ribbons
  • Christmas stickers (e.g. snowflakes)
  • burlap fabric
  • pom-poms
  • chenille stems / pipe cleaners (Christmas colors available)
  • Christmas florals and picks. Walmart has a larger selection of Christmas picks for the same price though.
  • Christmas wrapping paper

Money Saving Tips: If you don’t have any mason jars on hand, you can use any empty jar that you have. You can also buy used mason jars cheaply at thrift stores and garage sales. If you are looking for the best deals on new mason jars, buy them in bulk and when they are on sale. You can easily get them for less than $1 a piece on Amazon.
