Easy Twine Mason Jar Craft

Mason jars are big right now. In fact I've been a little obsessed and keeping ALL of my spaghetti jars. I clean them up and use them as our personal glass wear. I'm starting to collect way to many, so I thought it was time for a craft!

I am absolutely in love with this jar! You could easily add flowers as pictured above, or add a votive for  your porch ambiance. I think I'm going to do this to a few more mason jars! How beautiful would these look lined up on a shelf or mantel with fresh flowers?!

I would love to know if your into the mason jar craze, and if so what have been your projects lately?

  5. I have a lot of these jars just collecting dust. What a great way to reuse and repurpose! I also have a ton of twine like this in the garage that we use for gardening. Plug up my glue gun and I am ready to go. I like your idea of using a votive. That added would make a wonderful gift!

  10. What a great idea! We eat a lot of pasta dishes around here and for YEARS I've been trying to come up with a creative and attractive way to use (re-purpose) them beyond the recycling bin or to store things like sugar, coffee or smallish amounts of cereal.

    I'm definitely going to give this a try - especially because I like to give flowers as gifts (but not the expensive kinds that one orders from florists - especially for local gifts!) Buying vases can be expensive and the cheaper ones are usually REALLY cheap and ugly.

    If this works well - I would love it it! Especially as I like to bring bouquets of fresh flowers to my 91 year old mom and I don't want her to have to worry about cleaning or storing the old vases once the flowers fade!

    Thanks! (Pinned and Stumbled too,)

  13. Way to repurpose a glass jar. Sometimes they don't make it to the recycling place and pile up. I hate throwing functional things away. You could even gift it with the right contents!
