We decided to make something homemade for each person, and we have the perfect idea – “Cookie in a Jar” gifts. So we headed to our local craft and grocery stores and gathered all the materials and ingredients we needed for the gifts. There was a few bumps in the road, like having to improvise with a snowflake wand for our snowflake sponge for painting and the original recipe called for much more dry ingredients then what would fit into the jar so we have to cut the recipe in half. After we figured it all out we got started making our gifts.
I have to warn you, it’s a bit messy. Glitter as we all know is just a mess no matter how many table cloths, mats or newspaper you have laid down. We also had an issue with the flour not flowing into the jar but after seeing a similar recipe on Actual Mom. Now Sierra was smart because she used a funnel for the dry ingredients and I sadly did not. By the time we were done we had glitter ghost faces 🙂 LOL
