DIY: Nine Different Ways to Reuse Mason Jars
I have an obsession with mason jars, specially that you can reuse them in so many ways. The sky is the limit! So, I've picked nine different ways to reuse mason jars that you'll love, and they're all very easy DIY projects. From wedding to decorations to storage containers, we'll show you how to reuse mason jars in creative ways.
1. Store children crayons and crafts.
If you’re a pre-school teacher and would like to keep things organized at low budget in your class, then mason jars are the answer. Just by adding a fun sticker label to the jars and adding the crayons to them, you won’t only keep things well placed; you’ll also keep your class looking creative and fun.
2. Organize kitchen utensils.
No need to go buy a kitchen utensil holder when you can transform your old mason jars into something really cool. Tint them with your children’s water colors and add labels if you want. Voila, you have a very neat kitchen utensil holder.
4. New flower vase.
Use your old mason jars as flower vases to decorate your desk or a cute little corner in your house. It will give a very vintage look to the place.
5. Soap dispenser.
Your soap dispenser just got broken? Don’t throw away the pump, make a hole in your mason jar cover right in the middle, and fix your old dispenser’s pump with glue in the hole. Here you go, you have a new soap dispenser.
6. Make your wedding decorations.
If you’re trying to save some money on your wedding decorations, then this idea is perfect for you. Mason jars are very easy to decorate with lace and flowers to give a rustic or vintage look to the wedding’s atmosphere, and you can also use them as lanterns as we mentioned before.
7. Store tissue papers.
Use your mason jars as a tissue box, it’s a perfect DIY idea, as bathrooms tend to be always wet and paper tissue boxes always have the tendency to be ruined. Take the tissues out of the paper tissue box and place them nicely inside the jar, then carefully use a cutter to make an opening in the cover. With a lighter, try to smooth the edges of the cut, so tissues don’t break every time you try to take them out.
8. Cookie jars.
Just some decorative touches here and there, along with a nice top handle, and you’ll have the nicest cookie jars ever.
9. Present juice creatively.
Presenting your pink lemonade in mason jars is definitely everybody’s favorite thing right now; they look so cool with straws when you have people over.
