Mason Jar Love.


I have long had a crush on old mason jars, especially the aqua ones. There is something about them that is just so charming. After posting about using mason jars to pack a picnic, I thought I would do a post on some different creative ways to put them to use in and around your home. The jars above look adorable in a cubby shelf and provide a pop of colour as well as some great organization.


Use them to organize and store dry goods in your kitchen or pantry.


Wouldn’t these jars turned candle lanterns be gorgeous at an outdoor summer wedding?

I’m sure many of us have seen the above picture before (it’s made the blog rounds) – but still such a good idea!

Or how about this? Family photos displayed in mason jars? Looks great to me.

Cheeky Kitchen

Need a cute gift idea? Give a recipe in a mason jar.


And of course I love the classic mason jar flower vase.


I also love this idea, a terrarium in a mason jar. It’s like looking into a beautiful miniature world.

And whoever first thought of turning mason jars into a chandelier is a genius! This is gorgeous.

There are so many more uses for mason jars; I just needed to end this post before I really got carried away! They are both beautiful and practical. Do you use your mason jars creatively? I would love to hear any other ideas you might have! And if you are currently on the hunt for your own mason jars, Twig Home will be selling a bunch at The Old School Market this Saturday! Come say hello!!

    Hi Kevi,

    I too have a itsy-bitsy obsession with Mason jars!
    A few of my favorite facts for them is
    1. the smaller mouthed jars fit perfectly on a standard Oster blender fitting.
    2. both wide and standard mouthed jars can be used with a Foodsaver machine (&accessories) to vacuum pack dry goods.

    Love, Laura
