M & M Christmas Poem Candy Jar

Looking for a cute, simple, affordable, & meaningful gift for this holiday season?

These M & M Christmas Poem Candy Jars are the perfect present!

If you haven’t heard of the M & M Christmas Poem, you’re in for a real treat – or whoever your gift giving to is in for one rather 😉

What do I need to make a M&M Christmas Poem Jar?

You only need 4 ingredients to make this 5 minute Christmas craft.

All you need is:

  • glass jar (I got mine at the Dollar Store!)
  • M & M’s (I like to use the holiday ones)
  • a piece of Christmas ribbon
  • the M&M poem (scroll to the bottom to print it or you can handwrite it).

How do I make a M&M Christmas Poem Jar?

It’s so simple, y’all! Just fill your jar with loose M & M’s. Put the lid on it to seal it up and then wrap a little ribbon around the top of it.

Use a hole puncher to make a hole in the top corner, and attach the poem to the jar with the ribbon you’ve wrapped around the jar.  OR, you can also abandon the ribbon idea and tape it to the front with clear tape.

You could even laminate the poems for pretty cheap at Staples or Office Depot so your gift recipient can keep the poem. This would be so cute done with a handwritten version.

I love 5 minute Christmas craft ideas like this!

What IS the M&M Christmas Poem?

That’s a good question! It goes like this:

M & M Christmas Poem

As you hold these candies in your hand and turn them you will see, the ‘M’ becomes a ‘W’, and an ‘E’ and then a ‘3’.

E is for the East where the star shone so bring.

M is for the manger where the baby Jesus slept at night.

3 is for the wisemen bearing gift, with which they came.

W is for worship, Hallelujah! Praise His name!

I just love this gift.  I hope you love it too!
