A mason jar doesn’t have to be designated for just the pantry. There are lots of fun ways to use these jars in your home decor. If you have a few extra stored away, you may want to bring them out to use in a fun new way. I have gathered up a selection of ideas that will help to inspire you in your decorating.
I came up with a very easy rustic looking candle holder. All you have to do is fill the mason jar part way with small stones or pebbles. Then, set your votive candle on top of the stone and tie some raffia around the neck of the jar. This can be part of an indoor or outdoor table setting or shelf decor. I have used these in the summer, on the patio, for a little extra lighting in the evening. You can also put a citronella candle in the jar to help ward off the mosquitoes! For a more beachy look, just fill the bottom of the jar with beach sand instead of the pebbles.
Here are some of the other ideas that I have found:
For some holiday dazzle, this jingle bell mason jar by The Inspired Room is a perfect craft idea. I’m loving the jute string wrapped top!
Another fun holiday idea is to make your own snow globes. This design, by A Place For Tea, uses an old Christmas ornament to fill her jar. See exactly how it was turned into a snow globe by checking out her blog.
I hope these ideas get you thinking about mason jars in a whole new light. On top of all the decor, you can also use mason jars for some great decorative storage in your craft room or office.
