To Fill the Jars:

  • 2 cups flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • Halloween Sprinkles

To Make the Jars:

  • Skull Napkin
  • Printable Gift Tag
  • Cardstock Paper
  • Mod Podge or Craft Glue
  • String or Raffia
  • Grey Cotton Fabric
  • 1 Pint-Sized Mason Jar with lid


  • Make your jar first by trimming your napkin to fit nicely on the jar. I cut off 3 of the four sides, leaving just the clean front of the skull and flowers.
  • Coat the jar with a layer of mod podge, then immediately place the prepared skull napkin on the surface of the jar. Take care to place it carefully because the napkin is thin and fragile--and will tear if you try to move it after the napkin comes in contact with the mod podge. One thing to note: I left the measurement marks on my mason jar visible on the back of my jar, because I thought it would be neat to see how much of each ingredient is in the jar. Allow this first layer of mod podge to dry completely.
  • Coat the napkin-covered jar with a second layer of mod podge, just to provide extra protection for the napkin. Allow this second layer of mod podge to dry completely.
  • Fill your jar with the cookie mix. I tried a couple of variations, but my preferred choice was to split the flour into 3 portions. Then I just added the darker ingredients between these 3 layers with the sprinkles in the very middle.
  • Once filled, place the lid on the jar and secure it tightly.
  • Cut your fabric to about a 5-inch by 5-inch square or a 6-inch diameter circle.
  • Print your recipe card on cardstock paper and cut to size.
  • Punch a hole in the top of the recipe card and thread the string or raffia to it.
  • Place the piece of fabric on top of the jar and secure it in place with the string or raffia and be prepared to gift!
