I am an avowed Mason Jar addict. I can’t help it, I love them. Certain members of my family make fun of me for the fact that I use Mason Jars for everything from my to-go cup to pantry and craft room storage to outdoor lighting but the truth is that there is nothing  quite like a mason jar for, well, everything under the sun.  SO I’m always on the hunt for some good Mason Jar crafts. Here are some of my current favorites!

Mason Jar Soap Dispensers - Ugly Ducking Transformations

I love these! There’s something about them that makes me think of a little shop on the winding streets of Paris. I think I’d like to have a whole row of them on a shelf, full of flowers and greenery to brighten up my house.  Or maybe a few in the bathroom for holding toiletries, q-tips and cotton balls. Gorgeous!

Mini Mason Jar Makeover - Jennifers Mentionables

These are such a great idea for a back yard party, just a little light to add some ambiance to the edges of the yard, bringing a little magic to the night. I think I might try using citronella candles as well to help create a barrier around the yard to ward off the mosquitoes.

Sweet DIY Votives - Fellow Fellow

While these are supposed to be votives as well, I think I’d like to make something similar for craft storage on the shelves of my craft room. I love the pretty, tiny prints on the fabric and how light and cheery it makes the jars look. You could also turn these into lovely vases by inserting a smaller jar inside to hold the water but keep it away from the fabric. Pretty Pretty!
