Brownies in a Mason Jar

Brownies in a Mason Jar
Happy Friday friends!  I hope that you all had a great week.
We've been pretty tied up here with life, you all know how that goes.
My little man is due for minor surgery next week,
and we are praying that everything goes well.
This week, my boys were craving chocolate,
or was that me?  Nevertheless, I had this idea to put brownies in a jar
as a treat and also as a gift.  I've seen some cute ideas around the web, 
but I have not seen this one, so I went ahead and made this.

To make your very own, you will need the following:

  • scissors or x-acto knife
  • paint brush or small sponge
  • fabric paint
  • your choice of fabric
  • mason jar
  • mason jar open lid
  • paper or vinyl template
  • string
Before you begin, bake your favorite brownie recipe first!

When brownies are done, let it cool.
Print a template of a bunny or other figure unto your sheet, 
then cut out your figure with scissors or x-acto knife, I recommend x-acto knife.

Cut out a piece of fabric that can fit nicely over the top of your mason jar.
For a regular sized jar, about 4.5 to 5 inches works well.  
You may need a larger piece, for a large jar.
Place your template over your fabric piece, 
make sure that your figure is small enough to fit
on the top of your jar.  
An open lid helps determine the proper size of template.
Use the open lid to hold the template down and start painting the inside of the template 
covering the exposed fabric.
 When you are done, allow your paint to dry on the fabric.

While you wait for the fabric to dry, 
cut your brownie into squares, then into bite size pieces.
 Stuff your brownie bites into a clean mason jar and top with 
your favorite brownie frosting.

To protect the inside, 
seal the lid with press & seal plastic wrap.
Take your painted fabric and place it on the top of your jar,
you may hold it down with the open lid that you used before,
this allows you to wrap the fabric around the jar with your string as you see here.
To make it look pretty, you may also add a lovely gift tag.
You know, after all was said and done, I realized I could have added some berries
for color and flavor, that would've made it extra special. 
I hope that this inspires you to make your own sweet and tasty jar treats,
they're perfect for friends, neighbors, favors and Easter.

Thank you for visiting,
Happy Crafting & Baking!
Hope that you have a wonderful weekend!
