Ugly Christmas Sweater Jars

Does your family or office host an annual Christmas Party with an Ugly Christmas Sweater contest? Reward the winners with honey jars dressed in Ugly Christmas Sweaters.

Each year our family hosts a White Elephant Christmas Party. Attendees spend all year trying to find the funniest gift to wrap. We like to dress up in Ugly Christmas Sweaters, but not all guest do.


This year we are encouraging our guests to dress by offering prizes. I created these Ugly Christmas Sweater Jars to give out. This year I am wearing my husband’s Christmas sweater along with some matching leggings that I recently got.

Last week I was at the store and saw these neat jars of honey on the shelf. Their round shape brought up nostalgic feelings. My mom used to keep buttons and other sewing notions in globe food jars like this. The shape of these jars reminds me of Christmas ornaments, so I thought it would be fun to decorate them as holiday gifts.

On my second jar, I created a cardigan by adding a V of felt to the front of the sock. I trimmed the the V with a pipe cleaner. Then I added pompoms, stickers, and a bow. Isn’t it cute?

I’ve done two jars so far, but I will be making more so each guest that shows up in an Ugly Christmas outfit gets one.

I think our guest will really love these prizes because they are made with jars of Don Victor® Honey. These affordable jars are an inexpensive “gourmet” gift to give out during the holidays. Don Victor® Honey is raw, filtered honey, not heated or processed in any other way.

My favorite thing about the product is the honeycomb inside that can be eaten. I love to cut off a small piece of the honeycomb and spread it on a hot piece of toast fresh out of the toaster. The heat softens up the honeycomb.

I will be opening a jar and serving it at our party with brie and crackers. This honey pairs well with any variety of cheese.

Find Don Victor® Honey in the Hispanic Food Aisle of your local Walmart.
How will you decorate your jars of honey or other globe shaped jars?
