CONCORD GRAPE JELLY 2015

This year for Christmas I decided to give everyone something small, but homemade, as well as the usual wrapped, store bought gifts. I hadn't made jelly in many years but decided to make a couple batches of concord grape and do some container decorating.
Concord Grape Jelly made for my daughter, son, and sisters. Decorated with burlap, twine, Christmas patterned cotton fabric, and homemade wooden tags.
These are the smaller size jelly jars. I just made a handmade label to put on the top of them. These jars were tucked inside of a few gifts that were given to friends ~~ and were a big hit! 

It felt really good being able to make a few small things this year and give them out as gifts. I already have some ideas of things to make for next Christmas!
