Jim and I have an abundance of empty and unused mason jars after a failed attempt at canning our own pickles and jalapeños two years ago.
Occasionally we will use them to store anything from felt scraps to homemade chicken stock, but recently I’ve discovered a few tutorials requiring mason jars I’d like to try sometime soon:
Clockwise from top-left:
- Beeswax Insect Repellent Candles – Perfect for summer evenings. I would probably substitute the eucalyptus scent for rosemary.
- Chalkboard Paint Labels – Great for spices and other small kitchen ingredients.
- Fabric Votives – I like the warm, translucent glow of the light through the strips of fabric.
- Air Freshener – All you need is baking soda and a few drops of your favorite essential oil. How easy is that?
In what creative ways do you use mason jars?
