We always love a good mason jar craft at Life As Mama, and the holidays are the perfect time to put them to good use.

1. Christmas Tree Mason Jar Candle Holders
I’m all about easy crafts which look handmade. That’s the best part about crafting! I love this simple mason jar craft which would actually be pretty fun to do with your kids. Take a Christmas tree shape (make a cutout of your own or use your cutting machine), place on the jar (this crafter used the new smooth-sided Ball mason jars- FANCY!), and then paint! Remove the cutout, fill with epsom salts to look like snow, then add a tea light. Wouldn’t these be so cute to light on Christmas morning?

2. Stamped Snowflake Luminary
This simple, stamped mason jar would be a great way to dress up a gift, or use as a vase for a holiday floral arrangement. Use chalk paint to get a more rustic feel, and then a simple stamp with a contrasting ink pad color. That’s it! I love the simple addition of the twine and bells to make it extra festive.

3. Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
This super cute Rudolph mason jar would be an awesome way to bless your kids teachers or as a fun hostess or neighbor gift. While the outside does take some planned crafting, the inside appears to be a simple collection of malt balls! It’s so cute, I can definitely see your giftee not wanting to eat it.
