Hello TT&J readers! I’m so happy to be here today! Hope your Christmas was the merriest!
Today I’m sharing an easy New Year’s gift great for neighbors, teachers, friends,….anyone really!
I’m loving all things pineapple right now. Pineapples are symbolic of hospitality, prosperity, and a good ole’ welcome. A couple months ago I went through a study on hospitality, then I found a really pretty pineapple Christmas ornament. So thinking about this post I knew I wanted it to do with a pineapple and welcoming prosperity and hospitality into 2015. So, here’s my idea for a Pineapple Mason Jar Gift with Free Printable Tag:
The quilted mason jars reminded me of a pineapple. So I took some gold glitter paint and painted on some dots at each ‘intersection’. Here’s a closer look….
To make the pineapple leaves I took the top part of this template and printed it out and traced onto green glitter card stock adding about 1/2 tab at the bottom. I cut 4 for each jar so I could glue 2 together to have glitter on all sides. Then I traced the lid and cut out a green circle. Using an Xacto knife I cut slits in center of the circle. Then I cut a slit in the bottom up to the center of one leaf and then from the top down on the other leaf. Slid them together and pulled tabs through the circle and folded back.
I gingerly pulled the leaves through the lid ring and wallah….a pineapple top!
The finishing touch is a ‘Welcome 2015’ tag. Add a gold wrapped candy and done!
Here’s the tag….
Here’s to a great 2015!
Thanks so much Jen for having me today!
