Today I have a quick and easy DIY tutorial to spruce up a store bought food item to look more festive and polished for gift giving. These types of gifts are great for teachers, neighbors, co-workers, or as hostess gifts if you get invited to someone’s home over the holidays. My foodie item of choice is the Don Victor® Orange Blossom Comb Honey Globe Jar from Walmart. I bought myself one and I picked up an extra to have on hand as a last-minute hostess gift this holiday season.
It’s a great gift for nearly anyone because honey can be used for baking, for tea lovers, for oatmeal/yogurt or even for those pesky winter sore throats. And with January fast approaching, honey is a great sweetener for those New Year’s resolution smoothies and overnight oats. Don Victor® Honey is raw and unfiltered, and it's so tasty on biscuits, pancakes and over vanilla ice cream.
The honey itself comes in a gorgeous glass jar and a simple stretchy gold bow that holds the nutritional info card. My goal was to make this a beautiful, gourmet style gift using some common craft supplies such as scrapbook cardstock, adhesive rhinestones, tape and scissors. This comes together in minutes!
Here’s what you need:
DIY Don Victor® Honey Wraps
-12x12 piece of patterned or glittered cardstock (each sheet will wrap six jars)
-Two jars of Don Victor® Honey
-Tape and/or Glue Dots
-Holiday tissue paper
-Small gift bags
-Ribbon (optional, for gift bag)
Step 1: Remove the stretchy gold bow from the jar and set aside. Cut some festive/metallic tissue paper to roughly 6”x6” squares. Place over the lid and secure in place with the gold stretchy bow. Adjust as necessary.
Step 2: Using a ruler and pen, measure and mark 2” widths on your 12”x12” cardstock. Using your marks, cut the paper into 2” wide strips to make six, 2”x12” wraps.
Step 3: Flip your wrap right side DOWN, place the jar upside down on the center of the wrap. Wrap each end and secure with tape to the bottom of the jar. There will be a slight 1/8” gap.
Step 4: Flip the jar over. On top of the wrap, use some adhesive rhinestones to make a simple snowflake pattern. I did one using gold rhinestones and the other using silver rhinestones.
Step 5: Wrap the jar in some tissue paper and place in a small gift bag.
Also, remember the honeycomb is edible and tastes amazing with some cheese and gourmet crackers as part of an epic cheese tray! Lightly mash it with a spreading knife to make it easier to eat. You can also connect with Don Victor® Honey on Facebook and Pinterest.
I’ve been a busy body and have TWO more posts for you all this week. On Wednesday I’m joining a team of bloggers to showcase our Christmas trees. Here’s a sneak peek! Stay warm, and see y’all on Wednesday.
