{Mason Jar Craft} Party in a Jar with Bowdabra Bow

Have you seen the Mason gift jars layered with ingredients for making brownies or cookies? Using the same concept and layering technique, why not fill the jar with a party? Just fill the layers with various party themed ingredients. I like adding in wrapped candy, balloons, and birthday candles or little bags of confetti. Just make the layers in the party colors and you will be all set! It is easy and so much fun to create Mason Jar crafts like this one.

3. Cut a 35 inch long piece of 4 1/2″ wide sheer wired ribbon and insert directly in the Mini Bowdabra from the top. The ribbon piles up like an accordion. Keep scrunching the ribbon until you reach the end.
