5 Clever Mason Jar Crafts

Alright, so you got a little too ambitious with how much pickling you were really going to do—now what to do with all those extra mason jars? Fortunately, the web is full of ideas. I’m sure you’ve seen them holding craft supplies and pantry staples, but guess what? You can use them for much more than storage. A few genius ideas:

  • Mason jar sewing kit
  • Mason jar herb planter
  • Mason jar soap dispenser
  • Mason display jars
  • Mason jar lid pumpkin
  • Add a pincushion to the top to create a mini sewing kit, like Linda of It All Started with Paint.
  • Turn them into a mini herb planter, like the folks at Upcycle That.
  • …Or a crafty little soap dispenser, like Erika from Our Cozy Cubbyhole.
  • Add knobs, paint the lids and use them to display bathroom supplies, like Kristin did.
  • String them together for a quick autumnal decoration (that won’t go bad!) like Kristin of Yellow Bliss Road.
