Do you like to have things that serve more than one purpose? I like things that are both functional and pretty. Mason Jars are one of my passions. They represent do-it-yourself, nostalgia, and I happen to think, very decorative, plus functional on so many levels.
Here’s my list of ways to use Mason jars besides canning, which I do plenty of.
1. A Mason jar soap dispenser. I bought mine, but here’s a link to make your own, which I plan on doing for the bathroom sinks.
2. Group them together to make a statement. I love the look of the blue Mason jars, but if you can’t find any at a garage sale and don’t want to pay antique store prices, here’s a link to use food coloring to make them any color you want. I got mine at garage sales and from the pump house of the old house my parent’s purchased.
3. Mason jar Night Light. This is from my delightful friend, Jessie Gunderson, over at her blog. Click here for directions and get ready to meet a fun and crafty gal.
4. Cover the outside of Mason jar’s in lace. They make a beautiful lantern. Check them out over at Annaboo’s House.
