Want an easy, quick and festive table favor or hostess gift for Thanksgiving?
Gather together a small mason jar with lid, fall-colorful candy [I used peanut m&m's], and a few embellishments such as twine, fringe, ribbons, flowers, labels and a tag.
The first step is actually the most difficult: filling the jar. Be very careful. Fill the jar to the top, avoiding the temptation to eat too much of the candy, or you'll end up with a half-empty (or half-full) jar. Not such a good gift. If you did this step correctly, you should have something that looks like this:
The rest is EASY. Embellish!
I first wrapped the jar with a piece of canvas fringe.
Then I tied twine around the fringe, using three colors of red, yellow and brown, which just happens to perfectly match the m&m's.
Top the lid with a sunflower and a tag. This one was stamped with "thank you." You can stamp it with Happy Thanksgiving, or just write a name on it.
And you're ready to go!
