Every holiday season, I attempt to take on a handmade gift project...or two...or three. I'm usually left with a bag of unused crafting tools and a handful of half-finished gifts. This year I decided to focus on a theme — mason jars. I rounded up the most delicious DIY projects out there, and some of them only require you to peek into your pantry for supplies. Jar it up, after the jump!
