  • Spa in a Jar

    In need of a little pampering, or know someone who is? Here's a super easy, inexpensive, yet very well received Jar gift idea suitable for many ages.

    One of the things we love most about this thoughtful gift idea is the affordability. It's very inexpensive, if not nearly free if you happen to frequent our freebies forum. Many companies and brands offer wonderful free samples of beauty products, soaps, shampoos, body wash, skin care products and more.

    Send for these samples and collect them in a small box until you have enough to create these wonderful spa jars.

    Create your own Spa.. in a Jar! Everything you need for complete pampering

    This particular jar,
    pictured above contains a wide variety of spa items. Here are a few filler ideas for your own Spa jar:

    You'll Need:

    a Mason Jar (wide mouth or regular, both work fine)
    A strip of scrapbook paper Or wrapping paper in a pretty design or Tissue Paper
    Print or hand-write a label for your jar

    Simply wrap the strip around the jar (it's okay if it doesn't fit the entire way, you'll be adding a cute label anyways!)

    Add your label, "Spa in a Jar"

    Then carefully add your "ingredients"
    one item at a time. It's helpful to use the eraser end of a pencil to hold other items down, particularly if you're using a regular mouthed mason jar, rather than a wide-mouth jar.

      Definitely a great idea! With recycling, could also use an empty and clean mayo jar or a pickle jar as an alternative to purchasing a new one! Shhhh! We won't tell.
