With Valentine’s day around the corner, I thought I’d make something small for all the men in my life; my Dad, hubby aka soul mate, Calin, Uncle Sal ……….. In their own very special way they all light up my life. I don’t know about you, but it’s not always easy finding the right valentine’s gift for guys. Socks with hearts on are notoriously difficult to find and, to be honest, it’s a bit
weird disconcerting sitting next to someone and seeing little hearts peek out from under their trousers. But that’s just me. So while I was out shopping for who knows what, I found these adorable mini mason jars. Aren’t they cute? I also saw this post on Craftaholics Anonymous which got me thinking, why not add some matches, paint and a label using a gorgeous frame found on The Graphics Fairy?
Drill a hole in the mason jar lid and spray with some Rust-Oleum. The holes make it easy to dispense the matches, just turn the jar upside down and shake. Cut up a match box and stick the ignition strips on the sides of the mason jar using the jewelry glue. I tried using super glue and a glue gun but it didn’t work 🙁
Add a label and fill the jar with safety matches. These little mason jar match boxes will keep your matches dry and are perfect manly accessory for a picnic or a braai.
P.S. Unfortunately I had to get hubby to help with drilling the holes in the lids, so he might just be getting those socks after all 😎
