75 Easy & Creative Things to Do with Mason Jars

75 Easy & Creative Things to Do with Mason Jars

If you?re a Pinterest fan and keen on DIY, you?ve probably stumbled upon numerous pictures of Mason jars. In fact, Pinterest is so chock full of awesome ideas, that I decided to make a collection of my favorite ones.

I nailed some, while in others I failed hilariously. Anyway, here?s the list:

  1. DIY Oil Lamp

You can perfectly finish the decoration with a rusty canteen with flowers. Old canteens seem to be perfect to hold a small bouquet of flowers!

Use only battery operated tea-lights and not real candles, because there?s a chance that the flame will touch the fabric.

Eventually, I?d like to make some conclusions.

  1. Being a DIY maniac myself, I tried some of the listed crafts. Some of them look hard and complicated to complete, but are actually easy to make.
  2. Others, look easy as a child?s play, but can end into an awful mess. For instance, I had to turn to pros for the hanging flower shelf project. I?m still not sure what went wrong with the positioning.
  3. Regardless of the failed attempts, I?ll continue with the list, because it was really entertaining!
