Personalized Holiday Gift by Amy

I wanted to make something personalized and different for my mom and aunt as a Christmas gift this year. I went to Hobby Lobby (my new addiction) for inspiration and found these items.
I started by transferring the letteres to the jars and then hot gluing the jars to the candle sticks.
I also picked up two wooden knobs I spray painted black and then added ribbon.

I plan to add either candy or small ornament balls inside. I love how it turned out and you can add different decor inside the jar for different holidays.I bought the candle sticks on sale: the total project was under $30.

  1. What a sweet gift idea Amy! I think your mom and aunt will be tickled!

  2. The knobs on the top along with the ribbon add a perfect finishing touch. The monogram is a great way to add personalization. They will love it...unless they've already seen the blog and then, of course, they probably already do love them.

  3. They're like DIY Apothecary jars. Love it!

    I need to get myself to a Hobby Lobby one of these days... :)

  4. Those are cute. They could use them as candles too. I sure hope they don't read your blog ;)

  5. Luv these jars! I vote for filling them with candy! I'm your newest follower and I look forward to catching up on your older posts. Hope you can hop over for a visit to http::// and say hello.
