10+ Super Simple Mason Jar Crafts

10 Super Simple Mason Jar Craft Ideas

Mason jars are all the rage right now, which kind of cracks me up!  I grew up in West Virginia, so mason jars have always been a part of my life, I guess.  It was no big thing to grab a mason jar instead of a glass for water or iced tea, and the idea of using a mason jar to hold cotton balls in the bathroom was not really an idea…it just happened.  I have to say though, the recent mason jar crafts movement makes me smile!  I love that we are finding new ways to use these inexpensive jars in fun new ways.  Today, I’d love to share 10 Mason Jar Crafts from this little blog that have been posted over the past two years…I just thought putting them all in one spot would make it easier go view them all! Here are 10 Mason Jar Crafts…I’ll be adding more as they are posted!

    I have always used mason jars. My mom has also.when we were growing up my moms jars were off limits,so now it was hard at first to do snything else but can with these jars,but since I made my first dispenser, I’ve made a hand sanitizer dispenser with the half pint jar. Now I don’t feel so guilty using them other than to can! Thanks

    You can purchase mason jars with lids or separately at the Family Dollar or Dollar General Stores in Tennessee.

    I would to paint the mason jars with the paint that glows in the dark. I saw it on Pinterest but it was taken off due to Spam and inappriate subject matter. Fyi I grew up in Wheeling WVa and spent many yrs in Cross Lanes and St. Albany’s WVq

      Try a magic eraser! You can find them in the cleaning section of most stores. They are made my Mr. Clean and will get just about any mark off of anything! Good luck! ~Jess

      You could try a magic eraser. I use those to get markers, paint etc off all kinds of things.
