I do love a good thrift store. Glass products are something you can get on sale for very cheap and you can clean them very well through the dishwasher. They are very versatile.
These 2 items are 2 gifts that I made last Christmas and gave to my daughter's Awana teachers. The top one was a type of vase glued onto a candlestick and then we filled it with a bag of Christmas M&M's. We did a Cricut vinyl "Faith" on the outside. The bottom one was a glass jar with lid. We also filled it with Christmas M&M's but this one had "Laugh Often" on the outside. For sanitary purposes, we left the M&M's in the bag. If it had been for a family member, we would have opened the bag, but for others...we felt it was better to leave it in the bag.
There are so many things to do with glass jars. There are so many types or jars. Candy dishes, office supplies, candle holders, makeup/nail polish holders...the list is endless depending on the person you are doing the gift for.
