My cupboards are overflowing with mason jars. My mason jar hoarding drives Mike completely crazy, but they’re just so useful. Each week, I stock my freezer with 6 to 8 mason jars full of my Green Glowing Smoothie, but I also use them to store leftovers and pantry items. They’re also great for making easy mason jar gifts.
For crafting, I especially love the pint-sized mason jar mugs, but any mason jar will work. I like to try to get all of my mason jars for under a dollar each, and have found lots at second hand stores, so each of these mason jar gifts works out to just a few bucks a pop.
A few coats of glass paint (I use this kind) is all it takes to transform those mason jars into inexpensive, personalized gifts.
A little paint and a light sanding for rustic mason jars for vases and organized desks.
A few coats of chalkboard paint give this mason jar mug a modern look.
Mason jars are also perfect for poured candles.
And hot chocolate.
