I have a confession…… I love mason jars! I love canning in them, drinking out of them and I LOVE crafting in them. I have decided to share a cute mason jar craft every month next year and I am starting a little bit early. They make such inexpensive gifts that wow everyone! I am starting with a fabulous fall gift, a simmering pot recipe.
Have you seen these around on the internet. There are tons of recipes readily available but this one is my favorites for fall. The idea behind a simmering pot recipe is you put the simple ingredients in a jar and add water. Simmer on the stove all day just keep adding more water for a gorgeous all natural smell!
- pint mason jar
- 1 orange thinly sliced
- 1 apple peel
- 1-2 cinnamon sticks
- 1 T. whole cloves
Add the orange, apple peel, cinnamon sticks and cloves to the mason jar and fill remaining jar with water. It’s as simple as that!!!
Tip: I was told by a friend that if you break the cinnamon sticks in half it releases even more of the flavor and smell so break away my friends!!
Now every cute gift needs a cute printable so check out my chalkboard printable below! Click on the picture below to save it and print it from your computer at home!I am loving the chalkboard prints they are absolutely my favorite printable style!
I like to keep gifts like this on hand for last minute occasions. Do you have easy seasonal gifts handy for last minute presents?
