Thanksgiving Popcorn Jars and A Blog Hop

You all know how much I love giving my party guests favors to take home with them after a party, especially edible favors like my gummy pizzas and Twix or Treat bags. And today I have a fun idea for you that would make a perfect favor to send home with your Thanksgiving guests, a great gift to bring to your Thanksgiving hostess, or a cute Thanksgiving decoration or centerpiece.

And if you like these jars, you're in luck because this post is part of a Thanksgiving blog hop with six other incredibly talented bloggers who have all come up with a unique and creative Thanksgiving idea to share. Blog hop details are at the end of this post so make sure you read all the way to the end.

These jars are one of the simplest things I've done in a long time but with a little baking twine and Thanksgiving printables, simple becomes a great gift that I'm sure anyone would love. I was actually inspired to make these after I made my milk bottle candy corn. I was walking around Target looking for candy corn and saw the Thanksgiving candy corn, you know those ones with the brown on the bottom? As soon as I saw them it hit me - I want to make Thanksgiving candy corn in a jar! Next thing I knew, I was at home making these babies and eating just a little too much caramel corn in the process.

Thanksgiving Popcorn Jars

Supplies

  • Caramel corn (homemade or store-bought) 
  • Cheddar popcorn (homemade or store-bought) 
  • Kettle Corn or Regular Popcorn (homemade or store-bought) 
  • Mason Jars 
  • Baking Twine
  • Bird's Party Thanksgiving Printables
  • Gluestick
  • Single or triple hole punch 

Instructions

Step 1 - Gather your supplies.

Step 2 - Fill each jar about 1/4 of the way full with caramel corn.

Step 4 - Add kettle or regular popcorn to each jar until full.

Step 5 - Cut out your circle printables for the jar tops. Take the inside portion of each mason jar lid out and flip it over. Glue one label to each jar lid. Once the labels are glued on, put the lids back on the jars.

Step 6 - Cut out your gift tag printables. Punch a hole in the top of each tag and thread a piece of the baking twine that is long enough to tie around the jar through each hole.

Step 7 - Tie each label to a jar and you're done. Sit back and admire your craftiness and maybe think about what you're going to do with the jars.

Or you could just say you gave them away and enjoy them yourself instead. I won't tell.
