What you will need...
Canning Jars
Spray Paint
Scrapbook Paper
Hole Punch
Hot Glue Gun

My family "LOVES" Snickerdoodles! So we decided to make up a batch for our gift. We stacked a few in a jar and topped them with some adorable ornaments and gift tags. Check out what we did below!!!

Start by making up a bunch of delicious Snickerdoodles. YUM!
Get some jars. In this post I am showing 4. Fill them up with 5 or six cookies. Make sure your cookies are small enough to fit in your jars.
Next, spray paint the jar lids. I like using canning jars. I didn't use traditional Christmas colors this time. I like the bright colors.
I found all these ornaments at a yard sale. Great deal and they are so cool!
Cut out some tags and get some string or ribbon to tie them on the jars. I used scrapbook paper to cut out my tags. Hole punched them and strung them on the string.
Now all you have to do is pick out some ornaments for the tops of your jars!!! The kids had fun picking them out for me. They wanted to keep them, but thought it was fun that they get to hand them out as gifts! All we did was use the hot glue gun to secure them on the jar lid.
The nice thing about the canning jar lids, is you can change the colors around. I think I like them better all mixed up!

Aren't they cute? And so fun to hand out too!
