It isn't quite canning season but I have all these jars so I was wondering what else I could do with them while I wait for the berries and stone fruits to ripen up. And lo, this post was born. 10 things you can do with Mason Jars:
1. Make Butter
Since my friend Veronica posted recently about making butter in Mason jars, I've been wanting to make some at home. When I was a kid we would do this with my mom. It is surprisingly easy, and makes really really good butter. I also found some flavored butter recipes that I'd like to try.
2. Candle holders for the garden
Or stick a face on it and it becomes a jack'o'jar.
3. Wired Light or a Wired Chandelier
I also really like this version, which was inspired by a pottery barn fixture.
4. Pack a Salad for Lunch
This one is entirely new to me - making a layered salad in a jar. What a good idea!
5. Premade Drinks for a Party
6. Wall Organizers
I've seen a few different versions of this idea on Pinterest.
8. Wall Planter
Take the wall organizer a step further and you have a sweet herb planter.
9. Reusable Storage Containers
10. Sewing Kit
