Christmas Kisses Treat Jars

These sweet Christmas kisses treat jars are a perfect gift idea for chocolate lovers.

Christmas Kisses Treat Jars
I want to share a simple little treat that can be made for your little ones as a special Christmas gift.

Or you can let them be hands on with this project as these would also make great Christmas teacher gifts!

My boys love helping out so they would love to give their teacher’s something they helped make for the holidays!

But really, these cute Christmas kisses treat jars are perfect for any chocolate or candy lover.

You could even add a gift card inside!

Christmas Kisses Treat Jars - Mason jars and Hershey Kisses
Christmas Kisses Treat Jars: Supplies

For these Christmas Kisses Treat Jars we’ll need two main ingredients: 3 jars and Christmas Hershey Kisses (2 bags).

I like the quilted Mason jars for this project, but you could also use smooth Mason jars.

Divide Christmas color Hershey Kisses
Christmas Kisses Treat Jars: Candy

Divide the Hershey Kisses by color then place each color in a jar.

Spray paint Mason jar lids
Christmas Kisses Treat Jars: Paint

Spray paint one lid white, one black, and one green.

Once dry, place the lids on the jars.

Match the white lid with the red Hershey Kisses, the black lid with the silver, and the green lid with the green.

Santa Mason Jar and Elf Mason Jar
Christmas Kisses Treat Jars: Decorations

The red Hershey Kisses are meant to represent Santa Claus, and the green a Christmas elf.

They both would typically wear belts, so wrap glitter ribbon around each jar and glue it in place.

I used black for Santa and gold for the elf.

Once secure, use glitter glue to draw a belt buckle on the ribbon.

Snowman Mason jar
The silver Hershey Kisses with the black lid is our snowman.

Glue 3 black pom poms down the front of the jar to represent a snowman’s coal buttons.

Santa Kisses, Snowman Kisses, Elf Kisses
Christmas Kisses Treat Jars: Tags

Make 3 little tags and label them Santa Kisses, Snowman Kisses, and Elf Kisses respectively.

Tie them on with some matching ribbon.

Christmas Kisses Treat Jars
You can write the child’s name on the back of the tag.

Or, if they are helping make them for their teachers, write the teacher’s name on the back.

Quick, simple, festive, and cute!!


>> See where I party! <<

Okay this is a random question but would you give all 3 jars to one teacher or is each jar for a different teacher? Just trying to do Christmas on the cheap but don't want to look stingy. :) Adorable idea!

Totally not random, Ang! I would give one each to a teacher probably paired with some sort of gift card. Our teacher from last year LOVED Sonic so we gave her a $10 gift card with one of these jars. :)
