merry mini christmas treat mason jar

Make sure your holiday treats are as adorable as they are delicious – hand them out in our Merry Mini Christmas Treat Mason Jars! We’ll show you how easy it is to decorate each jar, then top the jars with super-cute miniatures and tiny ornaments. It’s the sweetest way to spread good cheer!
Step 1
First, add Sprinkles™ to your chocolate-covered pretzels. To do this, lay them flat on a piece of parchment paper; then place them in a microwave for 20 seconds to slightly melt the chocolate. Sprinkle the tops with red and green sprinkles. Let the pretzels rest at room temperature until they’ve cooled to a solid state.
Step 2
Next, remove the lid for each Mason jar you’re filling and set them all aside. Wash and dry each jar.
Step 3
Place one of the Mason jar’s metal rings (removed in Step 2) and trace around it on the paper backing on a piece of adhesive felt. Repeat to trace as many circles as you have Mason jars to fill. Cut out the felt circles and set them aside until Step 5.
Step 4
Now, fill each Mason jar with your colorful chocolate-covered pretzel treats and replace the lid/metal ring on each one.
Step 5
Remove the paper backing from each red felt circle and press it on top of a jar lid, making sure it’s centered. Continue until all the lids are topped with felt circles.
Step 6
Cut and wrap a piece of double-stick tape around the outside of one metal lid. Wrap over the tape with yarn until it’s completely covered. Repeat for the rest of the lids, too.
Step 7

It’s pom-pom time! Make two mini pom-poms for each of your Mason jars. You’ll hang them from the yarn-wrapped lid.

TIP: Never made a pom-pom? It’s easy! Here’s how:

   -  Cut a length of yarn that’s about 10" long and set it aside.
   -  Loosely wrap the same yarn (still attached to its skein) around your first two fingers, ten times.
   -  Gently slide the entire bundle of looped yarn off of your hand, keeping it as still as possible, so that you don’t disturb the loops.
   -  Knot the 10" piece of yarn as tightly as you can around the center of the bundle. The tighter you tie the knot, the fluffier your pom-pom will be.
   -  Make sure you tie the knot exactly between the looped ends to help make the pom-pom completely round.
   -  Snip open all the loops at each end, but be careful not to trim the tails of the knot that’s holding the pom-pom together. You’ll need these long pieces to tie your pom-poms to each other and to the jar.
   -  Trim your pom-pom until it’s nice and round. Remember to make enough pom-poms so you’ll have two per jar!
Step 8
On each pom-pom, snip one of the long tails so it’s flush with the rest of the pom-pom. Use the other long tail to tie one pom-pom to another. Now, tie the two pom-poms onto a Mason jar lid; then trim away the excess yarn. Repeat to add two pom-poms to the rest of the jar.
Step 9
Almost done! Glue an adorable holiday miniature to the center of the felt circle on top of each Mason Jar; then let it dry.
