Mason jars make the cutest gift packaging for homemade Christmas Bark or a handmade scarf! Not sure what to do? Pinterest has a million creative Mason jar gift ideas! Of course, the Mason jar itself is a gift. And who doesn’t need another good solid jar. They are perfect for leftovers, beverages or holiday candy!

To dress up your jar, simply stencil construction paper that has been trimmed to fit the jar. Yes, it’s that easy! Tie a satin ribbon around for an extra festive touch. If you’d like to actually stencil the jar itself – here is a tutorial on creating an etched glass design on a jar.

An eco-conscious alternative to wrapping paper is a decorative gift box that can be repurposed! After the gift is removed, store delicate Christmas decorations inside or display on a mantel as a decoration itself! Using Jennifer Rizzo’s Mix and Match Christmas Stencils, we layered stencil designs on top of each other to give each box a unique one of a kind design. This is a great project you can do with your kids! They can let their imaginations run wild mixing stencil combinations! Just make sure that each layer is thoroughly dry before you layer the next design!

Stencil Gift bags are easy to personalize and also a great activity for you and your kids! This idea is also the most cost effective, especially if you need to do a bunch of small gifts for a soccer team, your colleagues, or a classroom! Buy a bulk package of solid gift bags and then mix and match Jennifer Rizzo Christmas stencils with various Red and Green Chalk Paint blends and you’re done! There are enough combinations that each bag can have an individual look! What’s great is that you can reuse your stencils on another project and spread the festive flare allover your house too!

They are always reusable with endless possibilities in creativity. Don’t believe us? Here are some examples. The antlers, reindeer and pine tree stencils would be really cute for a rustic home décor accents like a throw pillow in the family room.  And the shining star, marching stars, and Falling Stars would be cute in the back of a kids’ bookcase.
