Holiday Cider Mix


This is a really easy and simple craft recipe you can do at home, with the kids, or in a craft group!

What you'll need:
  • 1 Mason Jar (or recycled jar w/ lid) Any size is fine
  • Scrap piece of Fabric
  • Twine, Raffia, or Ribbon
  • Sheet of Paper (for printing)
  • Clear Packing Tape

  • 1/2 c.  - Orange Drink Mix (pre-sweetened, like tang powder)
  • 1/3 c.  - Lemonade Drink Mix (pre-sweetened powder)
  • 1/2 c.  - Sugar
  • 1/4 c.   - Instant Tea Powder
  • 1/8 tsp. - Clove Powder
  • 1/8 tsp. - All Spice Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. - Cinnamon Powder
  • Apple Juice (or just water)
  • Scissors

In a clean jar, measure each ingredient and add to jar in layers. You can layer them anyway you want! Once finished put your lid on the jar tightly. 

Next design the label for your jar. Alternatively you can make this by hand. My label is 3in high by 3.5 in. wide. But you can make your label what ever size works for your jar. Once designed pull out a piece of packing tape long enough to cover your label leaving about a 1/2 in of extra tape on each side. For my label I needed two long pieces to cover the width of my label. Putting the tape on like this not only looks fantastic but protects your label from getting wet or damaged as quickly. Carefully put label on and gently rub in place.

This is back side of my jar. So you can see the layers. To finish your jar cut a square from a scrap piece of fabric large enough to cover your lid. I ripped my edges for a more aged look. Then place fabric on top of jar, wrap twine, raffia, and or ribbon around fabric/lid and POOF! Your done!

Note: On my label I added the directions & ingredients. For directions: Shake jar till mix is completely blended together. Add 1tb + 1tsp cider mix to 8 oz. of very hot apple juice (or water). Mix well, allow to cool to liking, and enjoy!
This is a fantastic holiday gift. It's super easy to make and affordable. Plus if you're like me, I love homemade gifts best!

Hope you enjoy,
