A few Mason Jar Projects


I am slightly obsessed with having everything organized, and throwing things out/putting them in a yard sale stash in my attic, is on my top 5 favorite things to do list.  My mom also contributes to my yard sale stash every year as she's cleaning out her closets.

This year, a mason jar was in her yard sale stash, so I actually went against everything I believe in, and shopped from my own yard sale loot. (I usually like to get rid of things and not look back.)  There's just so many cute things to do with a mason jar these days...so I thought I'd try something out.

It was the quickest project in the history of projects.... I took some white spray paint, used my Michael's App to get 40% off a silk flower, and spruced up my laundry room window sill a bit.  I'm in there all the time, so now it's nice to have something pretty to greet me when I walk in.  (See more laundry room posts here, here, and here.)


Too bad it was kinda dark, because it really is so pretty in the room.

If I ever come across a ton of mason jars, I think I'll try out some of these projects. These are my favorites that are circling Pinterest these days...there are so many things to do with them!  You can use them....


1.  As Centerpieces


2.  As a Cup


3.  As a Chandelier

Original Source not found, but please let me know if you can locate it!

4.  For Cupcakes on the go


5.  As a Sewing Kit


6.  To hold utensils for a party


Aren't these so creative and cute?!  Have you tried any mason jar projects lately?

Happy Friday, friends.  I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
Linking up with Lauren.

I haven't used milk paint before and I'm loving this. How is the texture of the milk paint?

Oh wow! I never thought to reuse the jars but you may have just converted me into holding onto them. These jar makeovers are supercool!

Emily said...

the venue for our wedding had A TON of mason jars we could use. i think my friends used them for just about everything during the reception! flowers, pen holders, drinks, everything.

Megan said...

I love Mason jar crafts. When my grandmother passed, she had a whole set of Mason jars that we drank out of. I wish I'd gotten those from her house. :(

I'm the same way! Or they sit in my trunk and ride around until I get somewhere to donate them.

Kayla Peveler said...

Yes! My whole wedding had mason jar centerpieces. They were so easy, and cheap! I have like hundreds, now!!

I love using mason jars to hold utensils at parties! It such an easy, cute way to display them and you can always change out ribbon or decor on them to jazz 'em up!

Sybil@PeaceitallTogether said...

I love mason jars! I would love to have some to use as glasses for drinking, but also like the centerpiece idea.

Allison said...

I love Mason jars. :) I want to make a dessert in them and actually bought a book of jar desserts I need to start on ASAP!

Rachel said...

I use them as flower vases all over my apartment, but I loveeee them as centerpieces at weddings!

Kristen said...

I need to make one of those sewing kits. So cute! Oh, and I need one those cupcakes like right now ;)

Emily Raphael said...

I love the white one you did! I have also seen ones painted gold- maybe a cute thing to try for the holiday season. My mom always used them for drinking glasses!

RoselyC said...

I've seen so many cute projects of mason jars on pinterest too. The flower you chose is beautiful.

Kimberly said...

I've seen the cupcake before, but maybe because I haven't had (much) sugar this month I want to do that one SO BAD. It's darling. I'll just make up a bunch and hand them out to random people. Or for Halloween.

I love the chandelier but I love them as a silverware holder, that is totally something I would do!

I've done the baking cakes in jars for a baby shower I was throwing at a restaurant... travels much better than a regular cake. I also do my banana bread in jars. I really want to pain a few to have a makeup brush holders or toothpaste holders.

Mason jars are the new hip thing! I saw the cutest lids for mason jars that look like a flower, and then the center is space for a straw. They were perfect for a cute little party.

I LOVE mason jars! My brother's getting married next August and his bride-to-be wants to use them for favors, to decorate, etc! They're so versatile. Plus, everyone needs a little pick-me-up like a random laundry room flower :)
