Put on one glove. Then put the other glove on right on top so the first glove is inside the second one. Remove the gloves together. Fold the fingers down and tie a piece of twine around then in a bow.  Fill the large mason jar with candies and gifts. Slip the open end of the gloves over the top of the jar to create a hat.
