I saw this recipe for BBQ rub on the Real Simple website. I love Real Simple…so many great ideas there and I love their comparisons on what the best product is and their cost comparisons.
I “borrowed” some jars from my SIL and made three Christmas gifts in less than 10 minutes!
I just layered in each pint the ingredients…
Just FYI, each pint holds 1 1/2 recipes. I packed it in snugly, tamping down the mixture with a measuring cup. When I was done, I ran a bamboo skewer down the side all around to get the design (remember sand art?) Love it!
In combination with three potholders or a gift card, this makes a nice gift! See my assistant Jack in the first four pics? No matter how I took the pic he was right there!
I Mod Podged scrapbook paper to the jar lids for a more professional look…and I included the directions for using the rub on the gift tag.
I am linking up to these great parties!

Great idea! Love the look of the "sand art" effect.
This is genius! It's so hard to find things you could gift a guy! And I agree...the sand art effect is very cool. Pinning this to remember to try soon.
Love this! So great for guys!
