5 Beautiful Mason Jar Craft Projects

There’s something nostalgic about those little glass jars, isn’t there? Maybe it’s the stamped glass or that we associate them with homemade jams, jellies, sauces, and pickles. Or maybe we just remember seeing them in our parents’ and grandparents’ kitchens. Whatever it is, Mason jars just have a…certain something. I think that’s why they’re so great for crafting. They add instant charm!

The other thing I love about Mason jars is how durable and versatile they are. They can withstand heat and cold, which means that when you make something from a Mason jar, it can last for a long time, as long as you don’t drop it on the floor!

Whether you’re an avid thrifter or just love canning, chances are you’ve got quite the stash of Mason jars. Here are 5 beautiful ways to craft with your reclaimed Mason jars.
