Decorating Jars for Your Holiday Gifts

Use paint, labels, stencils, decoupage, and embellishments to make your jars look special. Match gifts and jar decorations to the person receiving the gift. Then attach a matching gift card to your jar.

Sterilize Jars for Food Gifts

The jars you use to package food gifts should be glass and sterilized before use.

  1. Check all jars for chips and cracks. If chipped or cracked, don't use it for food. Use new lids.
  2. Wash with hot, soapy water; then rinse.
  3. To sterilize jars, place them on a rack in a large pot and cover them with water. Let the water come to a boil and boil for 15 minutes. Remove from boiling water and let dry. Jars and lids can also be sterilized in your dishwasher.

Methods to Decorate Your Jars

Decorate With Labels

Make paper labels created on your computer and then printed, or draw labels on your choice of paper. You can Paint Can Labels with the help of getting printing services.

To give your labels an aged appearance spatter with brown acrylic paint thinned in water. Use an old toothbrush for spattering.

Lightly sponge the edges of the label using a dense foam sponge and the spattering mixture. Allow labels to dry; then glue or decoupage to jar.
