How to make Reindeer Mason Jars:

Step 1. Clean the mason jars with soapy water and allow them to dry. They need to be completely dry before filling. Allow to air dry and wipe with a paper towel.

Step 2. Make the Reindeer face. Find a portion of the Mason jar that does not have any writing on it. Glue on your googly eyes and gum ball nose so your reindeer has a face.

Step 3. Fill your jar with Whoppers and sporadically add in a red gum ball. This will be perfect to be the Rudolph red noses in the jars.

Step 4. Make the antlers. Take 1 pipe cleaner and cut into 3 equal parts.  Glue one part of the pipe  cleaner onto each side of the lid for his antler. 

Take your remaining piece of pipe cleaner and cut it in half.  Take that small piece and twist it around his antler to make his horns.  Repeat for the other side and make another antler.

Step 6. Attach a label. I simply printed these off and attached them to some brown construction paper to make a gift tag.

How long will reindeer noses last:

Reindeer Noses consist of Whopper candy. Stored properly, this candy will last 4 to 5 months.

The mason jars are air tight and a great way to store Christmas treats.


  • Rolo Candies. Substitute these for Whoppers in the jars.
  • Red M&M. Instead of red gumballs in the jars, you can use red M&M’s.
  • Small Red Pom Poms. Substitute one of these for the gumball noses on the jars.
  • Hershey Kiss. Red seasonal Hershey Kisses can be used in the jars for the red candy.
