Repurposed Jars

PB Lanterns http://www.potterybarn.com/
Cost = $69.00 - So why not make your own knock-off?
 When I find something I like, I get it stuck in my head and want to make a million projects. Unfortunately, I work full-time so I don't have as much time to craft as I would. My newest fetish is Jars! I've just begun to start saving jars with future projects in mind. Check out some of the neat stuff others are posting in blogland.
These are from My World Made By Hand. They are hand made apothocary jars. She was so generous to post instructions. Absolutely beautiful. I want to make my own soon!

This same gal, came up with this idea too... Make up brush holder. How cute!

I just found this blog today, Boho Farm and Home. Painted glass jars with chalkboard labels!
 Now why didn't I think of that? So pretty! This makes me want to organize my kitchen!

Decor Chick came up with this, a Mason Jar Soap Dispenser! How original and fun!

So, have I inspired you to save your jars and make something sweet with them?


  1. I love this.

  2. love love all Your ideas

  3. “When I find something I like, I get it stuck in my head and want to make a million projects.” – Sounds like a true DIY genius! And I do understand what you feel. Whenever I see something, my mind goes into work and I think of a million ways to make it work for my home. And these repurposed jars look pretty nifty. This is surely one of the thousand ways to use a jar! :-)
