I made this cute Smores in a Jar Gift for my brother. It is easy to make!
Empty, Clean Jar (I used a spaghetti sauce jay)
1 1/2 c. Crushed Graham Crackers
1/3 c. Brown Sugar
1-1& 1/2 c. M&M’s
1 c. Marshmallows (or until it is filled to the top)
Layer in the jar in the same order listed above. I had to squish my marshmallows in to fit; a bigger jar would have worked better.
I used Mod Podge to glue the Smores in a Jar Label (see free printable at the end of this post) to a piece of red construction paper which I then glued to the jar. I also painted the Mod Podge over the top of the entire label & a little over the edges- this seals it and creates a protective coating. Please note that it will dry clear and not stay white. I used a decorative, green scrapbook paper on the top of the lid. I did this by tracing the lid onto the paper and then used the Mod Podge to adhere it to the lid as well as over the top to again create a protective coating. When it finished drying, I added a 2nd coat of Mod Podge over the tops. Next, I tied a green ribbon around the edge of the jar lid.
For the Recipe Instructions Label, I laminated it with clear contact paper and punched a hole in it. Then, I strung ribbon through the hole and loosely tied it around the jar.
