11. Mason Jar Terrarium
Mason jars are perfect for growing herbs and other small plants, especially in a sunny kitchen window, but if you don’t have the light needed and love the way they look, don’t be afraid to go fake! Artificial succulents these days actually look like the real thing. Check out the instructions for this project over at Hometalk.
12. Mason Jar Beach Keepsake
Use a mason jar to display items from a recent beach vacation! You could even place a photo from the trip on the inside as a backdrop. I did this last year and the jar ended up full of bugs! It might be a good idea to clean and air out your shells before sealing them in the jar. Hehe. Check out the full details for this project here. It’s a great mason jar craft to make with your kids.

Stack and glue jars, and then use them to store your office or craft supplies. How clever and cute is this!? I like this idea for a shelf over a desk, so that your supplies are easy to grab. Check out the instructions over at It’s Overflowing.
14. Mason Jar Lanterns
Use pliers and wire to turn mason jars into hanging lanterns. You could use just about any filler to make it fitting for the occasion. Top thisthem with a tea light, and hang them indoors or out. You could also simply fill them with flowers for pretty hanging bouquets. Check out the instructions for this mason jar craft over at Intimate Weddings.
15. Mason Jar Floating Centerpiece
Whether it is a wedding, outdoor party or just creating a little ambience, floating candles in mason jars can turn plain candles into a rustic centerpiece. Rustic weddings continue to be a hot trend whether it is the look or the unique ways you can keep costs down. One way to keep the costs down and rev up the look is to use mason jar floating candles. Add some simple burlap, leaf ribbon or jute ribbon to personalize your centerpieces.
You can also vary the amount of light and view of the candle by varying the depth of the water. Check out the variations below.
