6. Mason Jar Craft Gifts
Mason jars make for beautiful gifts, especially for the holidays. Stack the dry ingredients of your favorite recipe (brownies, cookies, etc.) and print the recipe on the top or inside of the lid. Decorate the jar however you’d like with ribbon, twine, washi tape and maybe even a tag. This mason jar craft is quick to make and is a unique personalized gift.
7. Mason Jar Hanging Lights
Add some charm to your kitchen with DIY mason jar lights. They look spectacular grouped together over a table! For safety reasons, the light bulbs do need to breathe, so be sure to drill a small hole in the top or bottom of the jars. Do your research before taking on this project! You can view a really good video tutorial here.
8. Mason Jar Lamps
These mason jar lamps are perfect for a small side table or fireplace mantel! They wouldn’t put off much light, but they could definitely add warmth and character to just about any room. You can buy them on Etsy or easily make your own. Just remember, it’s important to make sure you create a hole either in the jar somewhere or in the lid so that the heat can escape when the light is on.
9. Mason Jar Solar Lights Craft
These DIY solar lights are easier than you might think, and so much better than the ones you can buy at a hardware store! They are perfect for a patio, and can obviously be easily moved around like a lamp to suit your needs. Check out the full tutorial and more pictures for these Mason Jar Solar Lights over at Today’s Creative Life.
10. Mason Jar Mini Sewing Kit
Store all of your small sewing supplies inside of a jar and use the top as a pin cushion! Just leave it to Martha Stewart to come up with this beauty.
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.
