Mason Jar Possibilities

Leave a comment

Mason jars. We all love them. Some of us might still use them for canning, but many of us have been coming up with creative ways to use them for organization, gifts or decor. For instance, I recently blogged about our DIY Mason Jar Sconce. Hometalk reached out telling me how much they loved it and asked me to curate a board on mason jar projects. I happily obliged!thisoldcolonialhome1409-mason-jar-ideasVases, lighting, and candles tend to be the most popular, but I love how everyone puts their own little spin on it using paint, ribbon, jute rope, etc. I also love the ideas of using just the lids! Traci from Beneath My Heart came up with a fun and easy way to make coasters out of them. And Erin at DIY on the Cheap shows off a cute way to make ornaments.

What I love most is there are options for all 4 seasons! Here are some of my favorites:

1. Fall

Kelly from Live Laugh Rowe simply placed a votive candle in the center of the jar and added vase filler — like popcorn kernels and acorns. These are items you may already have around the house or the backyard! So easy and inexpensive!DIY Fall Decor with Hanging Mason Jars2. Winter

Diana at Anyone Can Decorate made “snow globes” out of her mason jars. She glued bottle brush Christmas trees to the underside of the lids and then filled the jar with fake snow and glitter and turned the jar upside down. I love how she also attached some jars to candle sticks to vary the height. How festive!mason-jar-snow-globes-anyone-can-decorate3. Spring

Tiffany from Offbeat and Inspired came up with this centerpiece that’s perfect for spring! It’s so bright and colorful while also rustic and industrial. She used 6 mason jars along with pipe clips, nuts, bolts, and mending braces to create a snake-like vase display that can be bent any way you like. How unique!mason-jar-vase-centerpiece-offbeat-and-inspired4. Summer

Dee over at Meatloaf and Melodrama guest posted on PinkWhen her bright, fresh, and fruity mason jar utensil holder. All it took was a little spray paint and ribbon. And she simply used a black sharpie for the watermelon seeds. So cute and perfect for a backyard barbeque!summer-mason-jars-pink-when As you can see, the door of possibilities isn’t just ajar (see what I did there?!) … it’s wide open! Head over to my Hometalk board to see the rest of these fantastic ideas.
