Here are some of the most creative ways in which our customers have used their Mason jars.
Mason jar crafts: tissue holder
Cut a two- to three-centimetre circle from the centre of your Mason jar lid. Put a pack of tissues in the jar and feed the first one gently through the hole before replacing the lid to make an attractive holder to neatly dispense tissues.
Other Mason jar crafts
Salt and pepper shakers
Similar to the tissue holder, carefully cut out a series of small holes in the lids of two jars to turn them into salt and pepper shakers.
You can also turn your jar into a soap dispenser by cutting a small hole in the lid and inserting a liquid pump dispenser.
Make a slightly bigger hole in the lid and insert a light fitting. Screw in a bulb and you have a funky and unusual light fitting.
Make your own hot chocolate mix
One of the best Mason jar crafts involves mixing up an epic hot chocolate mix and presenting it as a gift in a decorated jar, topped with a thin mint and some mini marshmallows.
Paint the inside of your jar with some clear glue, pour in some silver glitter and shake it around the jar so that it sticks more or less evenly to the glue. Place a tea light in the bottom of the jar to make a sparkly candle ornament.
Mason jar oil lamps
Carefully cut a hole in the lid of your Mason jar and thread through a length of thick cotton string, leaving about three centimetres above the lid. Fill the jar halfway with oil for burning, replace the lid and allow the string to soak up the oil before lighting it.
Grow your herbs in Mason jars in the kitchen – it is fascinating to watch the plants grow.
