Quick Fall Hostess / Teacher Gift Idea

Hi everyone, I have a fun fall hostess gift idea on the Pebble blog (and here) to share with you today that you can whip up in a matter of minutes.

It's basically fall in a jar and it's bursting with traditional falls colors.  I'm going to let my girls give these to their teachers but they're perfect for a hostess gift or a little treat for your co-workers.

  • mason jars
  • your favorite Pebbles fall collection - pattern paper, die cuts, wood veneer
  • Twine
  • Paper piercer or hole punch
  • Sticky Thumb Sticky Dots
  • candy or trail mix

To create these, fill the mason jars with candy made up of the your favorite Autumn colors. Then, cut leaves using whatever tools you have.  I used my Silhouette CAMEO.  Then mix and match the leaves with a sentiment cut from one of the pattern papers in the 6x6 paper pad.  Punch a hole in them and tie them together with twine. Wrap around your mason jars and then add wood veneer using Sticky Dots.

You're halfway done at this point! Next, grab a few smaller leaves and a cute little wood veneer character. Adhere the leaves together, folding them the way a typical leaf would be folded. Adhere them to the top of the mason jar lid using another sticky dot.
Add a little bow to your character to give it even more character.  Adhere to the top of the lid using a stick dot.  I also attached a piece of cardstock as a base to the back of the wood veneer to help it stay standing upright.
And there you have it, two quick gifts using my favorite fall colors. I only hope my girls' teachers enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making them for them.

I love these. How did you give the lids a vintage look?

Hi Connie...Thanks for the compliment. I bought the jars with the lids at Michaels. They were in the Autumn/fall section and on sale!
