DIY Minimal Christmas Activities Jar Using Simply Creative – 5 Minute Craft

It’s happening… It’s the last tutorial of the year here on the blog and we’re sharing something we know you’ll love!

Christmas is only a few days away... OMG! It’s that time of year already where people are starting to take time off celebrate the festive season and truly get into the swing of Christmas. Why not enhance that festive feeling and really dive in with a bunch of Christmas activities?!


This minimal Christmas activities jar is so easy to put together and you’ll only need a few things to get started.

You Will Need:  

  • Rustic Twine
  • Simply Creative Faux Berries
  • Simply Creative Decorative Clear Tape “Merry Christmas” design
  • Simply Creative Star Sequins
  • Dovecraft Extra Large Lollipop Sticks
  • Dot & Dab Transparent Glue Stick
  • Large Mason Jar


How To Make:

1. Starting with a clean mason jar, wrap twine around the top lip 5 times or until covered. Leave the ends loose so you can tie berries on to the jar later.


TRIMCRAFT TIP: To make sure this stays put, apply a little of the Dot & Dab transparent glue underneath.

2. Take 4 berries and arrange them at different heights. Twist the stems together and hook onto the jar.


3. Secure the berries by tying the loose twine strands in a bow and trim the ends of the berry stems down.


4. This is where your traditions and creativity matters! Taking the Dovecraft Extra Large Lollipop Sticks, write down a fun activity you wish to do this festive season. Repeat this until you run out of ideas!


5. Using the Simply Creative decorative tape, take a small section of the Merry Christmas tape and adhere this to the front of the jar.


6. Pop the activities on lollipop sticks into the jar and sprinkle in a few Simply Creative star sequins to add dash of Christmas magic!


Now your Minimal Christmas Activities Jar is complete! Whether it’s just you or the whole family, pick out an activity and enjoy your day to the fullest.
