Easy Mason Jar Home 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.

I would use them all over the house if I could. There are tons of ways to create up cycle crafts from them.

Pictured above are two mason jars I painted with Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue, hot glued two pieces of rope around them, and added a few flowers from Walmart. Easy peasy!

Mason Jars are so versatile, and can be repurposed in so many ways.

I love how we can recreate farmhouse vibes with a little easy mason jar home decor.

Here is another way I have REPURPOSED a mason jar to fit with my modern farmhouse home decor;

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.  How about that for a new piece of home decor?

Even though I made this myself you can easily find them for purchase here.

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.

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 pictures I found from Pinterest:

How cute is this mason jar piggy bank! I might have to make my son one of these. You can find plain old mason jars with slits in the lid on Amazon.

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

I love the rustic farmhouse style that these create.

How about you, have you completed any mason jar projects?
