Simple DIY | Salt & Pepper (Mason Jar) Favors

Share this project

“We go together like Salt & Pepper!” Me and my hubby sure do, in fact we’ve gone as that for halloween… #cheesy. If you share the sentiment and are planning a rustic, shabby chic affair –  this is the perfect, memorable favor for your guests! Combine salt and pepper in one absolutely darling mason jar spice shaker and you have a thoughtful, usable and adorable gift to give! One that is sure to be talked about highly…



  • these darling Mason Jar Spice Shakers
  • lots of salt
  • lots of pepper
  • cute twine
  • mixing bowl and funnel
  • scissors
  • our FREE tag design download
  • cardstock


Again, since Salt & Pepper always go together… here we are mixing them and putting them into the same shaker – genius right!? Pepper can overwhelm the salt a bit, so use less pepper than salt. However the exact mixture is going to be up to you – based on your taste – no science or measuring needed. Each mason jar shaker holds approximately 2/3 cup of spice.


Fill all your clean jars with your S&P mix…


{ We go together like Salt & Pepper Tags }

Download our FREE, adorable tags above and print them onto the cardstock of your choice. I cut them into little flags and punched a hole in the top.


Tie a tag onto each jar… and your done!


Freaking adorable right!?! Now these little guys can get expensive because of the cost of the shaker, so I recommend giving one to each couple or family. That way they can refill as they please… and remember you and your special day every time they season their food ;)
