This handmade gift idea is a Pedicure In A Jar. I gave these cute mason jar gifts to my girlfriends this summer.
Earlier this summer I went on an annual girlfriends getaway weekend. I have been friends with the ladies I went with for most of our lives and my friends are truly a gift from God. Life gets so busy and there were a few years where we didn’t see much of each other. Finally, we decided to plan a yearly getaway for just us girls so that we would be sure to make time to stay connected. We’ve been going on these getaways for 13 years now. So far, we haven’t gone anywhere that involves an airplane but we keep promising that will happen one of these days. I wanted to give my friends a small gift just for fun and decided to make a Pedicure In A Jar.
The supplies are basic: a mason jar, small containers, pedicure tools, a ribbon, labels and the spa treatments. I used a vintage pint sized mason jar, Spare Parts plastic storage tubes from Hobby Lobby, nail care tools from Trim and chevron print burlap ribbon from Hobby Lobby.
Fill the 3 plastic containers with spa treatments. One for soaking feet, one for scrubbing feet and one for softening feet. You can use treatments that you purchased from the store (a foot soak, a foot scrub and a good lotion) or you can make your own, which is what I did. Here are the recipes:
Print the labels to whatever size you need for your containers. You can open the image in a Word Doc and resize it as needed. Download the free printable labels here:
Cut out the labels and glue them to the containers.
Remove the nail care set from the package and fill the mason jar with all of the supplies.
Add some ribbon to the top of the mason jar and it is ready to go!
