11 Ways to Repurpose Glass Jars


I love reusing glass jars as often as possible. I love decorating with jars and even decorating them to give out as or with gifts. They are available in countless sizes, colors and almost all are reasonably price.

Check out our Upcycled Ice Crystal Mason Jar candle holder. Cranberry Honey butter not only makes a great hostess gift, it is also packaged in 4 ounce Ball jars which can be used again. These mason jar jewelry lid dishes make a great gift for mom.
