Easy Mason Jar Decor

Isn’t it funny that we’ve started decorating with something that used to be used to store food?  Who would have thought that a simple glass storage mug could create a decorating craze! So now that I’ve caught this “decorating craze” I want to share with you a few ways I’ve created some easy mason jar decor.decorating with mason jars

There are so many fun MASON JAR CRAFTS.  I would use them all over the house if I could, seriously.

Mason Jars are so versatile, and can be repurposed in so many ways. Here is another way I have REPURPOSED a mason jar;

MASON JAR SOAP DISPENSER

I used an old hand soap pump and inserted it in to the top of this “mason jar margarita glass,” painted it with milk paint, and hot glued a piece of ribbon around the top.

Now I have a very functional MASON JAR HAND SOAP DISPENSER.

It’s funny to think what my late grandmother would say if she saw this hand soap dispenser right now. Twenty years ago mason jars were a VERY functional and necessary item to store food. Now, they are becoming a decorating CRAZE!  Does anyone store food in a mason jar anymore? I can’t say I do.

I also created a DIY Mason Jar wall art after being inspired from something I saw on the Magnolia website.

Anyone who has a Pinterest page and pins anything home decor related probably has saved a REPURPOSED MASON JAR pic. Am I right?

Here are a few more inspiration mason jar pictures I found from Pinterest:

What a fantastic idea to make herb planters out of mason jars!

Anyone else have any ideas of how to use a MASON JAR?

  8. Oops . . . I meant to write “shabby-chic” in the previous comment. But, auto correct changed it to “shape-chic”. You’re probably thinking, “what the heck is that?” Sorry.

  9. Cute, Lindsey! Thanks for sharing over at #HomeMattersParty! I love using mason jars for everything!!! I stuff those battery operated ‘twinkle lights’ inside mine and use a table decor, or sidewalk lights for an outdoor party. Have a great weekend!
