DIY Spa Kit in a Jar

There is nothing more appealing that a day of relaxation during the stressful days of the holidays.  I don't know about you, but my budget isn't built to include a spa day at Christmas.  However, this DIY Spa Kit in a Jar is economical and so fun to make and to give!

It's Day 8 and we are sharing Christmas In A Jar Ideas!

This DIY Spa Kit in a Jar is so ridiculously easy that it is a bit embarrassing to call this a "kit."  Here's what I did:

Step 1.

I purchased these items from my local Dollar Tree, because they are tried and true and I love them!

empty glass jar and lid and lots of different spa items

bath bombs (lavender)
nail polish
facial mask
eye mask
hair ties
cucumber pads
spa gloves
nail sponge
Jar with a lid (I like to get apothecary jars from the Goodwill Store!)
washi tape

Step 2.

Fit in all of the items above in the jar.

Step 3.

Place the lid on the jar.  Secure with washi tape. Add a bow and ornament for decoration!  That's it!

The hardest part is making sure you give it as a gift and not keep it for yourself!  :)
