Thank you to Thank you Gift Card Mall for inspiring and sponsoring today’s DIY post.

Once upon a time, I wasn’t a crafty person. I still don’t think I am the craftiest of them all but I’m getting better as the “mom” in me develops! I had a super fun idea after perusing the dollar spot at one of my favorite retailers! These mini flocked Christmas trees sparked something in me that yearned to be creative with my gifting this year.
Gift cards like the Visa Style Everywhere and other Visa gift cards are becoming more common as people do love picking out their own gifts, but that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice the fun of wrapping up a gift for our loved ones! Keep reading for directions and a quick, minute-long video tutorial on how to make these DIY wintery mason jar gift card holders.
The VISA gift cards are sold at retailers like Vons, Albertons, Safeway and Kroger. They are a great option for a loved one, family friend, or even a teacher you want to spoil for the holidays! Gift your son’s teacher with a Visa Fuel Everywhere card or the Visa Explore Everywhere card for them to use over their holiday vacation!
I plan to gift my husband the Visa Movies Everywhere gift card as a stocking stuffer because he is obsessed with movies, and it gives us an excuse to go on a date! The Visa Dining Everywhere card is a great gift option for family members who you see each year but aren’t super close to, like aunts and uncles or family friends – everyone has to eat right?! Lastly, I’m totally secretly hoping that “Santa” gives me the Visa Home Everywhere gift card because I am obsessed with decorating our home and my budget could use some boosting, ha!


This craft is SO simple and fun to do! You could totally do this during a Pinterest party of for a fun craft and wine night with girlfriends! Aside from the mason jars being glass, kids can totally complete this project with you too, with supervision of course!

Many of these supplies were things I already had on hand like cotton balls, old gift bags, and the tags! I even used mason jars that had been sitting around, so feel free to get creative with what/how you use them! The trees were fairly inexpensive but I love how nice they look next to the fluffy cotton ball snow!

What You’ll Need:

  • Scissors
  • Mini flocked trees
  • Cotton balls
  • Paper Confetti
  • Old gift bags
  • Pint size mason jars
  • Burlap ribbon
  • Optional: gift tags + twine to label
  • Gift cards or any gift to fill it with!


See video below for detailed instructions!
