While giving cash for Christmas is an undeniably practical gift, it is a little boring to just fork over a wad of bills. This simple DIY allows you to package the money up in a festive way that adds an element of surprise to the present. See how easy it is to make a snowglobe money-holding gift.
I’ve been sharing mason jar gift ideas all week with a group of blogging friends of mine. You will want to check out their blogs as well to see all of their creative ideas.
I began by pouring a little bit of the faux snow into the jar to cover the bottom.
Next I took the cash, rolled it up, and tied it with a piece of baker’s twine. You could also use this gift to hold a gift card, concert tickets, an engagement ring, whatever!
After you have placed the present in the jar, fill the jar the rest of the way with the faux snow.
I finished off the present by adding more baker’s twine to the lid of the jar. No one would know by looking at it what fun surprise is waiting inside!
