So cute! Should post for baby food jars, too! We’re drowning in them. : ) P.S. word is “luminarias” for candle lanterns…


8 Clair February 19, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Thanks for these suggestions! It’s nice to have them all in one place!
I also used an old sweater to decorate an old jar, shown here: http://thecozycondo.blogspot.com/2012/02/decorate-mason-jars-and-coffee-cans.html

I love all of the ideas you guys have. Good! work! I will definitely pin you on pinterest! Love always

Love this list! We use the smaller jars with silicon baby bottle sleeves as durable, non-plastic drinking glasses for our kids.


13 Tina February 25, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Love these ideas. I am constantly looking for new ways to use my mason jars. I gave up on using expensive drinking glasses that chip and break when dropped and like Katrina we use them for drinking glasses.


14 Dawn February 28, 2012 at 7:38 pm

These are great! You can also use these ideas to upcycle old spaghetti sauce jars. It’s much cheaper than using Mason jars, and more earth friendly!


15 Sarah February 29, 2012 at 8:22 am

This is a great collection! I just got engaged and we’re planning an August wedding and I am planning on incorporating mason jars into the decor. These are helpful ideas!

I am also loving mason jars, I am having a summer wedding reception (got married last year! LOL) BUT I am totally into the mason jars and love when I find more ideas! I love your list.
Thank you for taking the time to share what you have found!

I sure do love all of these great ideas for mason jars. My only problem is, I use them for apricots, plums, and apples from our yard. And I always run out of them!!


18 Carolyn Yarbrough March 22, 2012 at 10:01 am

Why stop at 50? You’re on a roll! Great job gathering so many to see in one place – thank you!


19 Marva April 19, 2012 at 8:26 pm

You forgot to put Jam in one. ;-)


20 Michelle June 24, 2012 at 8:22 am

We love the mason jar ideas…need to purchase 150-175 of them for an October wedding any sites for purchasing that are reliable?



21 SavedByLoveCreations June 24, 2012 at 9:49 am

That is a great question, Michelle. I have never needed that many. We collected various mason jars from thrift stores and garage sales for a summer wedding, which worked because we had a lot of time to gather them, and we didn’t care if they were mismatched. If you want them all the same, or don’t have time to gather over several months, I found these at DollarTree http://www.dollartree.com/Kerr-Glass-Canning-Pint-Jars/p306655/index.pro. I would love you to keep us posted on what you end up doing and how it goes. Thanks for dropping by!


22 Latisha June 25, 2012 at 10:18 am

Where do you get the wire to hang the mason jars?


23 SavedByLoveCreations June 25, 2012 at 11:07 am

Good question, Latisha. I found mine at Joann Fabrics. I know it is also available, at least where I live, at Hobby Lobby, Michaels and even WalMart. If you can’t find it, just ask an store employee for craft wire. You could also use a wire hanger – just straighten it out and follow the instructions I linked here. Hope that helps!

Thanks so much for including my Fabric Lined Mason Jars in your collection! I’m so inspired by the rest of these ideas!
