Shake it off, Shake it off. Ok, Jessica has a minor obsession with Taylor Swift’s new song, and it’s a great motto for  Day 2 of our 12 Days of Christmas.

On the second day of Christmas j. sorelle gave to you…DIY heart-shaped salt and pepper shakers.

These DIY salt and pepper shakers make an easy, affordable and adorable hostess gift or Christmas gift. You can start and complete the project in less than an hour.

You’ll Need:
Mini jam jars – You can find small jam or honey jars at your local grocery store or you can find some from the English Tea Store
Push pin like these
Clear Scotch tape
Sharpie pen
Salt & pepper

How To:
Step 1: Clean out the jars.
Step 2: Place a piece of clear tape over the lid of the jam jar and with a Sharpie, add dots in the shape you want. We chose to do a heart to go with the theme of ‘season everything with love.’

Step 3: Poke holes through the lid on your dotted design.

Step 4: Once you poked through every dot, remove the piece of tape to see your design.
Step 5: Add salt & pepper to the shakers, package with twine or a bow and give, give, give. To make it really cute, attach a ‘season everything with love’ note to the twine.
