DIY Mason Jar Manicure Kit AND Lantern

33K Views
It's teacher appreciation gift time...again! This time, it's for my daughter's three preschool teachers. Can you believe her school isn't out for the summer yet? Since I had recently purchased a box of Mason Jars, I thought I'd try and make a gift for her teachers using the jars. I had seen these cute manicure sets on Pinterest and since her teachers are young and fashionable, I decided to make them each a Mason Jar Manicure Kit. But why stop there? I realized that if I just added some wire and a candle, the Mason Jar could also be used as a hanging candle holder. Yay! Two gifts in one! For the items in the Manicure Kit, I purchased everything except the colored nail polish at The Dollar Tree. I thought these items were super cute and very economical considering I have three gifts to make. With the money I saved on the supplies, I splurged on the polish and bought Essie, which is my favorite brand. For the lantern portion, all I had to do was add a bit of wire around the rim of the jar. So by day, it's a Mason Jar Manicure Kit, but at night, it magically transforms into this hanging lantern!
