DIY Mason Jar Projects

I’ve been a lover of mason jars for a long, long time.  On Monday, I shared our kitchen transformation with you and you may have noticed a couple of mason jars sitting around my sink.  I was inspired to create a couple of quick mason jar projects after the sink and faucet were installed, and wanted to share them with you today.

For my kitchen, I wanted to use mason jars for my dish soup dispenser and to hold my scrubby brushes.  Easy peasy!
I added twine to one of my jars with a hot glue gun…
…to dress up my scrubby brush holder.
I had an old soap dispenser so I used the pump from that, drilled a hole in the top of the mason jar lid, and filled it with soap.
Easy, right?  And so cute!
There are so many ways to use mason jars.  I use them all over my house, including…
…the office…
…and the bathroom…
I’ve used them in previous craft projects as well.
They were perfect for my daughter’s Horse-Themed birthday party favors, filled with trail mix, topped with a horse toy:
A mason jar was also the centerpiece of our Valentine’s Day mantle, filled with kisses:
I use both mason jars and repurposed glass jars, like spaghetti sauce jars, for all kinds of things.  You can get more ideas by checking out my Mason Jar Pinterest board.
Want a quick tip?  If you repurpose your glass jars and need to get the sticky labels off, use vegetable oil on a paper towel and scrub in a circular motion.  It takes a bit of time, but works like a charm!
What have you made with mason jars?
