You could use the baby food jars to hold potpourri, I decoupaged torn tissue paper (I used lavendar and white mixed together) on the outside all around the rim and the whole jar, then filled it with potpourri and took cut toille and put it on top with ribbon around it. I used these for my mom's wedding shower favors, and everyone loved them! Most people didn't even know they were baby food jars!

The look would totally change depending on the color or colors you use for tissue paper, toille, and ribbon! You could easily use Chritmas colors, with cinnamon potpourri or something like that! Or even a candle wrapped in toille with a ribbon!
