Christmas Cookie Jar: DIY


Hello Guys,

TWO MORE DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS! As great as the holiday season can be, it is easy to get caught up in the Christmas stress of things and become a little forgetful. If you find that you have forgotten to get someone a gift you can either do one of two things, panic OR make your own gift. Personally, I enjoy making Christmas gifts for people rather then buying because it comes from the heart. On Pinterest there are so many different DIY ideas to choose from but I have found the jarred gifts to be a really cute idea. Here the idea I used for my jarred DIY cookie jar.

First things first, you need to find a recipe to use, preferably one that has a bunch of different dry ingredients! You want this gift to look aesthetically pleasing! 🙂 I chose a “Cowgirl Cookie” recipe because it had so many nice layers. Next you want to find a unique mason jar to put the dry ingredients in. I bought this snowflake jar from Walmart for $2.97, it came with a bow and gift tag as well. Now lets start the assembly…

What you’ll need:

1 1/3 cups of flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1 cup baking oats

1/2 cup of sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

3/4 cups of chocolate chips

3/4 cups of m&m’s

As for filling the jar you want to make sure that each layer stands out. This is how I decided to layer my ingredients:


Along with the cookie jar you also want to include a card giving instructions as to how to bake these cookies. That is all you have to do, so simple and so thoughtful! Hopefully you enjoyed this DIY post, leave a comment and give this post a like if you did enjoy it! I hope you all have a great Christmas on Wednesday! 🙂
