Making a Baby Food Jar Christmas Tree

March 2, 2005

Food jar tree.Here's a picture of the baby food jar "Christmas tree" my daughter made for my friend's 80th birthday.



  1. Drill a hole in the tops of the lids.
  2. Paint them black & let dry.
  3. Glue the jars together in a tree form. (17 jars) (She first used hot glue, didn't work well. We also tried super glue, that was a disaster.) Use car mirror glue.
  4. Cut 2-3 inches of glitter garland for each jar and place in the jars.
  5. Use a 35 light string. Put 3 lights in the top jar, in through the hole of the lids, put 2 lights in the rest of the lids and tape with black electrical tape, to hold them in.
  6. Plug in and enjoy. I still have the one my daughter made over 15 years ago.

    This is adorable! What a creative idea! I thought baby food jars were only good for storing paint and other things in. Thanks for sharing the picture and instructions!

    They really look nice. You can also put a 3" wide green (or whatever color you like) ribbon around the tree part, or around the whole thing, just finishes it more.
