Nativities for Jars

Man it has been busy this holiday season!  
These nativity jars are just one of the many, many custom orders that have dominated my time lately.
These guys turned out so cute I had to share!

It took a bit to get things just right for the mason jars.  These ones are pint sized.
That tapered curve at the bottom make things tricky, but I finally worked out the strip pieces to fit just right if they are raised up about 1/2".

Now I just need to find jars that are smooth on the back.  Like used mayo jars or something.  That will be the next thing I hunt for.

Anyway, I figure these would be the perfect centerpiece for our next Christmas dinner or for the girls at church to make at their next activity.  The jars are less than $.50 each, the vinyl from $.50-$2, candles between $.25 and $.50, these guys fit the budget!
You can message me here or on my Etsy if you need some vinyl stickers, otherwise show me jars you made!  I would LOVE to see them!

Now back to work!  Just another day or two and I get to close my shop for my OWN family happy holidays.  Merry Christmas!


  1. I Gave 18 nativity ornaments to friends and family for Christmas this year using the silhouette dies I purchased from you. Now I am just as impressed with the nativity jars--they may be on the list for next year.But I was looking at other posts on your blog and found those cute cupcake dishtowels. I was following the tutorial so I could make some for my grand daughter's birthday (HER NICKNAME IS Cupcake).It said to trace the pattern and I could not find the link to the pattern to download it. Can you help?

    1. You know, I was just thinking about this towel, wondering if I want to make some more! They turn out just darling.

      For reference, the tutorial can be found here:

      I looked it over and I did NOT supply a pattern. We have moved three times since this post, so I will dig and see if I can find the pattern. Sound good? I will be back here and update that post if I can round it up in the next couple days.

      I am SO glad you have found some useful info on this crazy, mixed-up blog!
