Ode to The Mason Jar

The other day I was de-cluttering all of the junk that has piled up in our garage, and found a mass amount of mason jars. Now, anyone sane would just toss them and be done with them, but that wasn’t an option for this creative soul. I knew something good could come out of these bad boys and after a little research I found some really fab ideas. Don’t you love finding new ideas for old things? I know I do!

I cannot get enough out of these lemonade cups. I’m refreshed just by looking at them. What a perfect way to inexpensively add summer cheer to any picnic or bbq!

With a family as big as mine, there’s always some kind of event going on, whether it’s a bridal shower, birthday, or traditional holiday. The moment I spotted these mason jar soap dispensers I knew they would make perfect gifts. I love making heartfelt gifts! These soap dispensers are the perfect accent to any kitchen or bathroom.

Growing up, we used to always layer hot chocolate or cookie ingredients in mason jars and pass them out to family and friends during the holiday season. Another idea is using these jars to hold your homemade salt scrub!

I’m not sure if it’s my undying love for weddings or spending years in the south, but my heart melted when I saw these DIY wedding ideas made out of mason jars. Which ever it was, I approve!

These projects all have a bit of a country twang to them and I’m totally obsessing over all of them. Maybe the south rubbed off on me after all! Mason jars & the materials needed to create these projects are very economical, why not try making one this weekend? And, if you do decide to create one of these mason jar crafts, I’d love to hear about it!

Who knew these classic jars could clean up so well?!
