These are the Mason Jar Granola Favors I made for my best friend Colleen’s Bridal Shower brunch last weekend. Aren’t they so cute?! I am always annoyed when people waste so much money on pointless favors that serve no later purpose, so I knew I wanted to do something homemade, not plastic, and re-usable. They were super easy and inexpensive to make, although a little time consuming, and guests seemed to love them!
Mason Jar Granola Favors:
8oz. mason jars
6’ fabric squares
I bought the jars at Walmart (against every will in my body), made my own granola (recipe coming soon!), bought a 1 yard square piece of fabric at JoAnn Fabric & Craft Store (I probably could have gotten the rest of the items there as well, but I picked them up on different trips), bought a roll of twine at AC Moore Arts & Crafts, and to make the tags, I used natural paper, also from AC Moore, mailing labels, and a hole-punch. I printed her wedding monogram and date onto mailing labels I already had in my office, stuck them on the natural paper, cut rectangles around the tags, leaving more room on the left side to be able to punch a hole for the twine to go through. After enjoying the granola, guests can re-use the glass jars for canning, candle holders, office utensil holders, or to display collectibles!
Happy favor making!
Uhm… amazingly simple idea!

Apple Votives How-To
Every apple will float differently, so see how they balance in water before marking their topsides with a dot.
1. Place the tea light over the dot, and trace around its circumference with a paring knife, inserting the knife vertically as deep as the tea light is tall.
2. Set aside the light, cut the circle into sections, and scoop them out with a spoon.
3. Squeeze lemon juice onto the cut surface to keep the apple from turning brown, and insert a tea light. Repeat with remaining apples.
I spent all day yesterday watching my adorable nephews. I’m currently living on a dairy farm in a small town, so when I was trying to think of something we could do other than taking yet another walk in the mud, or more coloring, or another movie, I was kind of at a loss. I then completely understood why so many moms become DIY crafters! I’m on a mission today to do something crafty with them without spending any money. I’m smelling homemade non-toxic play dough in our future…
