A Few Fun and Simple Ways to Utilize a Mason Jar
Mason jars have long been used as a way to preserve food, such as pickles and dried goods like rice, thanks to their screw-on top which creates an air-tight seal. However, these versatile containers have a number of other uses beyond storing and preserving food, including home decoration.
Here are some other fun and interesting ways to utilize these classic glass jars:
Poured candles – For those interested in making their own candles, mason jars are an ideal receptacle to hold melted wax as it hardens. Also, the durable glass won’t warp or burn while the candle is lit.
Salt and pepper shakers – Anyone who enjoys DIY projects can simply poke several small holes into the lid of a mason jar. Then, add salt, pepper, or any other spice to the glass container, screw on the lid, and shake to season any meal.
Soap dispenser – A crafty addition to any sink area, soap dispenser mason jars are simple to make and can add a hint of hominess to bathrooms and kitchens.
Leftover paint storage – For anyone looking to better store their leftover paint, consider using mason jars. They are less messy than clunky paint cans, and they can be easily labeled and stored more efficiently.
