I have so many peanut butter and mayonnaise jars that would be perfect for this craft. I love that you are tidying up the essential Christmas items because mine always end up all over the place. They tend to find their way to the bottom of my boxes and totes, so a special place just for tags and ornament hangers will be nice.
