16th day of Christmas crafts: Snowflake jar toppers

We’re well into our Christmas crafts challenge for the month of December, and we have more tutorials coming!

For this craft tutorial, we have something practical and cute for the holiday season: snowflake jar toppers! These are the perfect way to liven up plain jars.

Read below for the full tutorial!

Just like the berry wreath Christmas crafts tutorial, these snowflake jar toppers were inspired by another project! Last night we made homemade condiments with some friends. Last year it was holiday cookies, and this year it’s holiday condiments, and funny enough, probably just as much sugar used in each. Anywhoo, we had a lot of fun making remoulade, pickles, honey mustard, spicy mustard, and normal mustard and added some toppers to them and these are the fruits of our labors.
In our December Christmas crafts challenge, we’ve had craft tutorials that included these glitter trees, candy lights, and Christmas spinners. Today I flipped my condiment project into a Christmas craft! I turned the tops into snowflakes and added some tissue and crepe paper under. This is a super easy way to make your everyday glassware festive for the season! These snowflake jar toppers would also make the perfect holiday gift! Fill the jar with sweets like these peanut butter pretzel candies, popcorn, or mini donut macarons!

DIY snowflake jar toppers


  • Glass jars of any size
  • Fabric or felt to make your snowflakes
  • Crepe paper or tissue paper to place under the snowflakes
  • Twine or ribbon


  1. Cut your snowflake pattern in a piece of fabric or felt
  2. Layer crepe paper or tissue paper over top of your jar lid
  3. Layer your snowflake over the crepe paper or tissue paper in the center of the jar lid
  4. Fold down sides of the snowflake and tie with ribbon or twine
  5. Repeat steps for as many jars as you’d like!

These snowflake jar toppers look a little bit like mushrooms! You can pair it with our paper mushroom wreath for Christmas mushroom-themed holiday decor! Keep reading for EVEN more holiday craft tutorials!
