23 Mason Jar Ideas


Good morning! I’m really excited about this post of Mason Jar Ideas. I adore mason jars and use them all the time in my home decor and organization. I’ve collected several aqua blue vintage Ball jars {pint and quart size}. Whenever I go to a yard sale or estate sale, I’m always on the lookout for mason jars.

I scoured the web for some of the best Mason Jar Ideas to share with y’all. I hope these ideas inspire you as much as they have inspired me. 🙂

    1. I LOVE that! What color did you use? Looks sort of yellow in the picture, but maybe it’s cream? Either way, it’s adorable!

  1. I love mason jars! We drink from them, decorate with them, store food in them, use them for outdoor lighting – anything I can think of! I check out garage sales and thrift stores every time I have a chance!

  2. I totally love mason jars too! We love drinking out of them, using them for storage, and gifts! This weekend I made a sewing kit using a ball jar for storage of the sewing supplies and the top as a pin cushion. Using burlap of course!
    Your post comes at perfect time because I was just thinking about making a soap dispenser for my kitchen, now I have the go to tutorial! Thanks Myra!

  3. I bought a mason jar soap dispenser once from Gooseberry Patch, but it really didn’t last as the top rusted and got rust all over the counter and in the soap and every time I twisted off the top to refill it, rust went every where, so my advice would be to get rustproof lids if you make that…………if they are available………

  4. Aqua mason jars are my obsession! I have 10 of them, various sizes and shades of aqua mixed in with the decor above my kitchen cabinets. I love them empty, although a few without lids do serve as vases. The clear jars are our drinking glasses, both large and small!

    There is nothing better to decorate with, in my personal and unprofessional opinion, than mason jars! 🙂

  5. Love the wall planter, candle holder and have seen the soap dispencer- really want to do that! We use mason jars for our cups to drink out of. 🙂 Thanks for the inspriation and compiling these ideas for us!

  6. Great round-up of ideas! I absolutely love mason jars. I grew up in the town where Ball jars were originally made, and my grandpa used to work in the glass factory there. So they have sentimental value for me as well as just being awesome in general! 🙂

  7. Wow! i accidentally found your blog and it’s really inspiring. Please keep writing and i really like your blog. Thanks 🙂

  8. After seeing your fun stuff, I put my dishwasher soap packets in one with a lid to store on counter rather than have to bend over all the time to get them out from under the sink. The orange packets look r ally cute in them.

  9. Thanks for giving me the idea to start a herb garden using mason jars. I have limited space in my apartment but I always want to have my own collection of herbs that I can use in my kitchen. I’ll try to look for good mason jars first and see if I can use them as decor too.
