Gift Idea: DIY Decorative Jars (Filled with Goodies, and Reusable!)
Glass Paint (I used Pebeo Vitrea Paints)
Colorful Baking Cups
Goodies to fill your jars with (I made Martha Stewart's Bath Fizzies - http://www.marthastewart.com/271871/bath-fizzies) Candy would also work!
Gather your mason jars, and decorate with the glass paint as you see fit! I like the confetti look, as it's simple and turns out nice and elegant.
Fire your painted mason jars according to your paint's instructions.
Fill with your goodies! I put the baking cups over the mason jars right before I screwed on the rims, giving them a more decorative look. I also printed out some labels to describe my bath fizzies, and attached a tag that read: "A note about the jar: I have been fire-sealed and am re-usable! Use me with candles or for storage!"
And there you have it - two gifts in one! I really like how they all look in a row. :)
