I had seen these cute manicure sets on Pinterest and needing gifts for my daughter’s teachers, I decided to make them each a Mason Jar Manicure Kit. But why stop there? I realized that if I just added some wire and a candle, the Mason Jar could also be used as a hanging candle holder. Yay! Two gifts in one!

You Will Need...

  • Mason Jar
  • Twine
  • Wire
  • Scrap Fabric
  • Glue Dots
  • Candle
  • Nail Polish
  • Top Coat
  • Emery Board
  • Nail Clippers
  • 8 Small Bottles of Nail Art
  • Tweezers
  • Toe Separator
  • Cuticle Stick
  • Cotton Balls & Q-Tips

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    Using a piece of scrap fabric, I traced around the lid of the Mason jar.

  • Step 2

    Next, I wrapped wire around the rim to create a handle for hanging.

  • Step 3

    The last step was to add all of the items to the jar. I purchased everything except the colored nail polish at The Dollar Tree. I thought these items were super cute and very economical considering I have three gifts to make. With the money I saved on the supplies, I splurged on the polish and bought Essie, which is my favorite brand.
