i {heart}mason jars

so i’ve kind of got a thing for mason jars.  just a small collection :)

i find them everywhere: thrift stores, garage sales, estate sales, leftover spaghetti sauce jars…  you can even buy them new at the grocery store, but i don’t think i ever have.

i use mason jars a lot. A LOT. they are all over our house, and have many uses, mostly to contain smaller items and look pretty while doing it.

these jars are used in our playroom above lily’s desk: white board markers, pencils, and special markers.

i love how the jar contains something so simple, but it makes it look pretty!

i love to use mason jars for holding office supplies – paper clips, business cards, staples, rubber bands, thumb tacks… the list goes on!

ahhh, the work space! holding vintage buttons, covered buttons, big buttons, hair elastics, and silly bands.  yes, silly bands.  i tried using them as a reward system for my kids.  it didn’t work.  but they still look cute up on my shelf, so there they sit!

here’s my drawer that i hold my tiny pouch stuff in, and these jars organize my snaps into colors.

these 2 items are by my side nearly nightly!  i keep my glue sticks in a huge ziplock bag, but i don’t want to lug it around with me (’cause i tend to glue in bed while sean and i watch a show), so i bring a tiny mason jar filled with glue sticks to make things easier.

a little drop zone, place to empty the pockets, by the back door.

though these aren’t technically mason jars, they serve the same purpose.

i bought these mason jar soap dispensers, but heather bullard gave a great tutorial on how to do your own here.

these were gifted to me and will hopefully be hanging above my table on our porch by summer, and i may have to try to make a few more to add with it.

in my free time.

my girls’ hair clips get out. of. hand!  these jars help to corral it all, and look good while doing it.

this just makes me happy ;)

and mix it up for v-day

and here were my jars for christmas, with little votive candles inside.

i love using mason jars as glasses for large parties, but sometimes it gets tricky figuring out who’s cup is who’s, so its fun to take simple tags from office supply stores to tie around the rim.

i use mason jars to hold utensils for parties as well.

actually, i use them for all sorts of things for parties.

for an asian themed party, put chopsticks in a jar

easy use – a simple vase

sorry, bad old picture, but still a cute use!  i helped with this baby shower years ago, withe mason jars as vases and drinking glasses.

and drinking glasses. again.

and again.

and again.

and a little different twist on the mason jars are my favorite aqua glass ones. and with the red accents it is so fun!

so… i’d love to get some new ideas for uses for mason jars.  what would you do with them?

    I love mason jars, too…..but have just recently started my collection, so I don;t have very many. Just ONE!! Saaaddd face. Haahaa!

  2. 2

    Hmmm……hot gluing while in bed sounds dangerous! LOL
    I love glass jars too, and your pics are very inspiring for what they can be used for!

  3. 3

    now i am intrigued to go on a hunt for mason jars! loved this post:)

    I use them to hold our silverware on the table. My youngest daughter painted the outside of one and then we put a votive candle in it. We love how it turned out!

  5. 5

    i love this post!

  6. 6

    Wow – you do have a lot of jars, and I love them! I made hanging mason jar votives similar to the ones you have above for my wedding. I hung them from a trellis that was over my wedding cake area. I also had mason jars filled with flowers and jars with a goldfish as wedding favors. Ah, memories! I have to get on the hunt for some of those aqua ones.

  7. 7

    I agree mason jars are awesome!

  8. 8

    I’m obsessed with them too! I have BOXES of them in the attic :)

  9. 9

    I love them too. I use them for most of the things you mentioned, orange vinegar, and salsa. We made the soap pumps with Heather Bullard’s instructions. Sounds like a great linky party! I’d love to see everyones jars!

  10. 10

    Wow, I think you’ve covered it all! I’ve been looking for some aqua ones as well, but cannot find any locally & they are so expensive to have shipped. If you don’t mind me asking, where did you find yours?

  11. 11

    We love mason jars! While my collection isn’t as large as yours, I love how usable they are :)

  12. 12

    we use ours to drink out of but I love all of your ideas on other ways to use them!

  13. 13

    I think you’ve changed me!
    I now want to convert all my drinking glasses to mason jars!
    I want a cupboard full of these wonderfully simple jars!
    Biz

  14. 14

    I LOOOOOVE mason jars. Or rather, glass jars and bottles of all kinds. Who needs plastic! <3

  15. 15

    Gave me a whole new prospective on mason jars. Think I’ll start picking them up from time to time when I find them!

  16. 16

    i LOVE mason jars. thanks for sharing all your great pictures. you have inspired me to get mine out and use them more often. most recently i used mine to light our front stairs for a jewelry party i was having. i put one on each step leading up to our front porch and put a tea light in each one. it looked so pretty all lit up at night with the sparkle of the glass. would be pretty at christmas too.

  17. 17

    WOW that’s a heckuva collection of Mason Jars! My mother has always been big into canning and jelly-making so I’ve always thought of those jars in those terms … never thought about how many other great uses they have! :)

  18. 18

    I love Mason jars. That is the only thing that we use to drink out of around our home. I got so tired of the normal cheap drinking glasses that kept chipping or breaking (4 children) so we went to wide mouth mason jars. Love them. So many useful ideas for them.
    Sarah

  19. 19

    Thanks for all the great ideas! My kids are just now at the age where I’m not worried about them putting little things in their mouths so I might actually set some of the little stuff out now…in mason jars! I just saw a guest post over at Blue Cricket Design for using a mason jar for a pendant light…maybe that will be your next project :)

  20. 20

    i love all these ideas. i have a ton of mason jars that i love. with 3 little boys i’ve been scared to use them too much…just envisioning a lot of broken glass. But this post is really making me want to be brave & try it! :)

  21. 21

    I just jumped on the Mason Jar Train! I have actually had a super sized one filled with wine corks for years. I just started embracing them as containers for everything that other wise ends up in a pile or bowl on the counters. Thanks for the inspiration!

  22. 22

    Um, I think I need to get me some Mason jars! I love the idea of tagging them for party glasses! What fun.

  23. 23

    I decorate lots with mason jars too, flowers, candy canes, berries. I also gift them. This season I gave away homemade sauce and homemade Christmas trail mix in mason jars. Very fun!

  24. 24

    Hi I’m a new follower, my sister Genn (Life in the Hass House) links up to you on Wednesdays…anyways I love all the mason jar ideas you just gave me so many!!! I especially love it as a loose change jar…my boyfriend leaves loose change EVERYWHERE he goes…lol So thanks :)

  25. 25

    I love the blue colored mason jars! I’ve recently started collecting them!!

  26. 26

    so pretty – yet another way you’ve inspired me :) I have whole case of them sitting in my closet unused, though not for long.

  27. 27

    Love the mason jars. You have inspired me to use them for more. I fill with sand and a votive and decorate the patio at our lake house – http://initiallyyours-stl.blogspot.com/2010/09/labor-day-2010.html

  28. 28

    Looove mason jars. I have a box of them just waiting to be used for my wedding in October! I love all of your uses for them, Lindsey!

  29. 29

    oh mason jars. i can never have enough of them either! love. love.love. I use them for all of the above and they are also good for gifting.

    This year my friends gave us all the old school mason jars that have class lids and a metal clasp. They filled them with soil and some sort of awesome plant that can live in there with the lid on. Such a cute idea. I have received tea blends and cocoa mixtures in mason jars. Anything can be put into them to use for gifting. They make great candle holders and look super on shepherd’s hooks. I used mason jars a plenty at my wedding, so I have a ton. I love the old milk jars too.

    I have used jars in my baking pantry for years, as well as storing rice, beans, pasta, coffee. I alsp use them quite often for canning foods. Thanks for sharing your uses! :)

  31. 31

    I heart mason jars as well! We used them in our wedding as vases and candleholders. We made some like you have to hang from the trees, and even had mini ones filled with strawberry jam Jelly Bellies for favors! I have put my jars to good use since then as well…so many uses!

  32. 32

    not sure if you’d be interested, but at walmart they have cute little wire mason jar caddies by better homes and gardens. they’re on the canning jar aisle.

  33. 33

    I love vintage mason jars and jars of all kinds for that matter. I use them in the pantry for dry goods. I use them like you too for holding paint brushes, decorating, q-tips, cotton balls, just about anything. We used the handled mason jars at my daughter’s vintage outside wedding to serve lemonade and iced tea. I’m like you…I just love them. My next love of jars are the ones with the clap and rubber seal….I used these to gift food items at Christmas! ~Swoon~

  34. 34

    i {heart} this post! i used the aqua mason jars for my wedding as votive holders…i mixed them into the table scape with milk glass vases filled with blue hydrangeas and red gerber daisies. i saw the idea online and knew i wanted to do that before i even got engaged. i borrowed a bunch of the jars from my grandparents and my husband’s grandparents and found a few at thrift stores and flea markets. my grandmother passed away three weeks before the wedding, so i’m so glad i had the jars there to remind me of her. i absolutely LOVED the way it turned out and our photographer must have loved it, too, we have a bunch of photos of the tables. :) now i use them all over the house to corral things, like you do. such a pretty and simple decorating tip!

  35. 35

    I am surprised by how many other people use jars for drinking glasses. Having four kids can be murder on the regular flimsy drinking glasses but wide mouth jars work so well. They are so much sturdier and stand up to being dropped so much better. We drink only out of either quart or pint jars, but always wide mouth. Half pint jars work well for kids hands.

    This is a fun post! I love to see your ideas and have come up with some projects to do before summer – the wire votive holder is a favorite and so is the soap dispenser! Thanks.

  36. 36

    I am the SAME way, Lindsey. I also use them in the pantry for my dried beans, oatmeal and nuts that I buy in bulk. My craft room is flooded with them as well. :)

  37. 37

    Great post! I have a ton of jars as well, just sitting in the closet. Now I know what to do with them!

  38. 38

    I have a few random ones, but after seeing this I sure will be on the lookout for more. My husband is so going to thank you for helping me with my “collections.”

  39. 39

    I LOVE jars of all sorts too! Since I have a baby, I have many baby food jars (very handy) too. It seems like a shame to toss all these lovely glass jars….

  40. 40

    well, the main use for canning jars in my home is for canning. :) so i have a HUGE supply of canning jars, too!

    but, i use them for storage, too. pencils, scissors, spare change, sewing trim tidbits. i use them for vases and drinking glasses, too. i was shocked to walk in and see my husband, a bona fide city boy even though he denies it, drinking out of a mason jar. and he went on and on about what great it was! :) i laughed b/c just like the line in a country song i grew up drinking out of mason jars, so funny!

  41. 41

    great post, lindsey! i love the simple look of mason jars…i use them for vases all the time. your picture of the poppies sooo makes me want to go get some flowers! thanks for sharing :)

    shannon stinson says:

    hey lindsey…
    enjoyed your post and pictures…..as we enjoy the jars much like you do! you also introduced some new ways that i like, too! i saw yesterday, yes, i watched oprah….horrible, i know…..but they were doing a show on “happiness” and i saw where your town is the happiest place to live on the map! good for you! looks like a great place! hope you have a great time at blissdom!

  43. 43

    Cutest post ever! Thank you for all the fun ideas. I {heart} mason jars, too!

  44. 44

    LOVE the mason jars with red flowers! what about a fish bowl—-for really small fish. or candy jars!

  45. 45

    I never knew how much i needed mason jars! I have a few but now I need at least a dozen or two more! Great ideas for organization and parties! :)

  46. 46

    I <3 mason jars too! I have several blue ones that my granny gave to me. I used them as vases for at my wedding reception. I also use them for pencils, straws, paperclips, etc. P.S. I won the ruffled scarf that was the giveaway on Sincerely Yours Paper blog. Love it!! You have a special talent!!

  47. 47

    I love them, too. In fact, I’m drinking water out of one right now.

  48. 48

    I also LOVE mason jars. My husband thinks I’m crazy for keeping so many. I painted a few white to look more like milk glass, tied twine and ribbon around the tops and put them in a basket for a friend’s new baby’s changing table supplies. Did you see the mason jar/mod podge luminary tutorials floating around blogland last fall? Or the ‘junk-o-lanterns’ vintage revivals made? So fun!

  49. 49

    I hope my collection of mason jars can be as large as yours one day! I keep all my glass jars too! I ask my cousin to save me all her baby food jars. And when I go to a hotel and they have those little jars of jam, I take a few as extra. I need to eat jam at home too – and to keep the jar. :) They’re so plain but they’re so “cute” at the same time :)

    I, too, use my mason jars for loose change, but for different reason. My husband and I collect our loose change in the jars all year and during the week of Christmas we drop them off at a strangers house. We adopted the idea from the book “Christmas Jars”. I highly recommend the book. (quick read) It changed our idea of “loose change.” We can’t wait to have kids to teach them this giving tradition!

  51. 51

    This is so funny, I can’t believe how many you have…Do your friends or family ever give you a hard time? I am not much better, I have a ton too! Love them, especially my blue jars, and the ones from my childhood with orange clamps! LOVE THEM!!! One use I have for them, that you didn’t list, was book ends. I love to fill them with interesting things, and use them to hold books in place, and I use them on my cookbook shelf to hold cookbooks in place! Always fun to find new things to put in them too, I always have my eyes open for new possibilities! Love to share the jar love!

  52. 52

    oh and i use them in my pantry…great for flour, sugar, sunflower seeds, chocolate chips, raisins, pasta, etc…. : )

  53. 53

    I LOVE Mason jars too!!!! Seriously. I look for them at thrift stores all the time and I have MANY occasions where I used a Mason, Atlas or Bell jar. On my blog there are posts with BAM Jars (Bell Atlas Mason) as a label (http://cstandsforcarrie.blogspot.com/search/label/BAM%20Jars). I recently gave a friend her bday gift all in jars and it was SOOOO cute (http://cstandsforcarrie.blogspot.com/2010/12/perfect-mason.html). So you are not alone in your love for Mason jars!!

  54. 54

    We just use them for canning but you gave me some cute ideas to try. Very creative!

  55. 55

    I love the aqua ones as well!! During the holidays I put white lights inside and wrapped the outside of the jars with cream sweater fabric. It sounds like something you might like! :) Thanks for the other ideas….always nice to use things you already have!

    PS- this is my first comment, but I’ve been a fan for a while now…

  56. 56

    Love this. Don’t have a single mason jar around…but I will be a convert. Such great, creative uses! Thanks for sharing.

  57. 57

    I love a good mason jar!!! Makes sweet tea taste so much better!! The little pint jars with the measuring lines are great for giving my daughter{who has type 1 diabetes} a drink, as we have to count carbs. I also love Joy’s Hope mason jar cupcakes…these have been well received when I have gifted them. Also, I give sugar scrub in the hinged jars.

    I love the hanging lamp idea

  59. 59

    I double fat puffy heart LOVE mason jars. I have a bunch of really cool squarish ones from my Grandma that will soon be put to use organizing things :)

    FYI Costco now sells peaches in their Kirkland Signature name and they are bottled in MASON JARS! Yup, none of those babies are hitting the recycle bin.

  60. 60

    I used mason jars at my wedding! We had some sand in the bottom and small candles in them. I left the brass ring and tied a rafia bow around it…so cute and perfect for my outdoor wedding! Every kept complimenting them!

  61. 61

    I own about 8 little jars – leftover from my attempt to make strawberry freezer jam. Now I want LOTS. They are so fun and simple but are so versatile. Thanks for the inspiration!

  62. 62

    You’ve renewed my love for them!

  63. 63

    sweet, sweet post at simple thoughts!!

  64. 64

    mason jars + wildflowers (the cool kind, not the weed kind) = Loveliness.

  65. 65

    I think you have covered them all!! =) I have them ALL over my house too… including Smuckers Jam jars… those are my Favorite!! the lids keep so nice… if you don’t have any… go buy some jam!! lol!! I love jars … I have the same exact desk set up!! I use them for paint brushes, paint water containers, coins, small math things like dice, OH… food… rice, pasta, sugars, baking soda, nuts, candy, the list goes on and on… as vases, drinking glasses, storing leftovers,… etc. etc… I should just do a post and show you all my jar uses!! I love the glue stick idea… why have I not thought of that!!? and… I have many many of those square jars too… lol!! I might just do a jar post… I will send people back here if I do~! ha… I am so thrilled to see this post… makes me feel sane!! LOL!~

  66. 66

    I use my blue Ball mason jars are picture frames! I just place one black and white 4×6 picture horizontal in a larger jar, and voila, cuteness!

  67. 67

    love all your pictures.. and i’m totally on board with your obsession! i love any kind of glass jar or bottle i can get a hold of!.. sometimes i buy salad dressings or alcohol bottles.. just for the bottle.. the small relish bottles are fun and if you know anyone using baby food jars – oh boy! those are amazing for tiny little treasures! i should do a post of all my jars!! then you can check out my collection! love em!!

  68. 68

    oh I love mason jars as well. I use them throughout the house. They hold our tooth brushes, our dish scrub brushes, etc… You can also use them for soups and bring them along as you visited friends!

  69. 69

    you DO have a thing for mason jars….
    makes me wanna have more of a thing for them…
    love them.

  70. 70

    WOW, I could have never thought of all of those ideas for Mason jars but oh how cute. I am gonna have to pick some up the next time I am at Sams Club. Great ideas girlie!

  71. 71

    Right now, I use them in the bathrm for Qtips,cotton pads,hair tools aka combs/brushes/etc, eye pencils, brushes,yada x2. I dream,however,of a mason jar wall in the tool area of the garage for fasteners&drill bit&such, and a craft wall area for notions,needles,etc. Considering i’ve done my share of canning over the yrs,i hv a supply, & dad’s not planting gardens anymore,much less 100tomato plants “cuz they were on sale”-and then irrigated them! Ack. But I do love purty old ones…-s-

  72. 72

    Thanks for those ideas! I would also use them all over my pantry for spices, coffee, sugar, wheat germ, legumes, etc.

  73. 73

    What were you talking about again?

  74. 74

    I am so happy to learn that I am not the only one out there with a Mason jar obsession! I use them for everything, and like you, I have cases of them on hand to pull out at a moments notice! I use them for all of my craft supplies (buttons, ribbon, felt scraps, glue, etc.) It is amazing that you can put any old thing in a Mason jar and it looks fabulous! I love the idea of the soap dispenser and will definately be utilizing some jars for that purpose!

  75. 75

    What cool ideas! I use them for candles, and to hold knives & forks when we have company. Also I collected a pantry’s worth of pasta sauce jars to use for , well, pantry stuff lol. love jars! hadn’t thought of them for drinking out of though!

  76. 76

    Well, I’m definitely not going to feel guilty about hoarding mason jars anymore. I thought I was the only one!

  77. 77

    Well, my favorite use for mason jars is filling them with jam. : )

  78. 78

    This is so inspiring – what a versatile little item that mason jar is!

  79. 79

    I love mason jars, too! I did a quick little project with some of these beauties I found at the grocery store last summer. You can see it here: http://ttbowtique.blogspot.com/2010/07/table-of-contents.html

  80. 80

    I heart your posts and this one is another example of how something simple is so lovely. Thank you for being so inspiring

  81. 81

    I love the blue Mason jars and have quite a collection. I mostly use them to house flowers instead of using a “real” vase. I found a black wrought iron holder at a yard sale that holds 3 Mason jars in a circle. I have it on a table with candles in the jars.

    Every winter, I put a few inches of white sand in the blue jars and add a small votive to make pretty luminaria. They’re gorgoeous when in snow!

  82. 82

    I use those for everything too, but I definitely do not have that many.. YET! I have all kinds of other type of jars- I always save them. We have quite the collection going, which is also pretty for decoration until I need them for something else!

  83. 83
    Sue Murphy says:

    Love, love Mason Jars and would easily return to a restaurant that serves drinks out of them just for that reason alone! They just bring a feeling of home and simple times to mind. I must do the hair accessory idea…a much needed solution to a never ending problem.

  84. 84

    that last photo is like a dream. sigh. gorgeous.

    i use mason jars for sweet tea & to put candles in…not votives though, i like the pop of color a little yankee candle gives when i drop it in a jar :)

  85. 85

    I love mason jars, too. Sadly, mine are mostly in boxes are stored away so you can’t see them. My mother-in-law used to can all the time and gave them to us when my daughter got married. Almost 100 jars. We used them to make the lanterns you show in your post with ribbon tied around the mouth of the jar. We also used them without the hangers to sit on the porch rails at the reception and for the centerpiece vases filled with wildflowers. I gave away two boxes of them and kept two of the really old ones. Now you’ve inspired me to take them out of the box and make them useful! Thanks for all the great ideas on how to use them.

    Stephanie says:

    I keep a couple near the stove. One for bacon grease that I reuse for rubbing on my cast iron skillets and one for grease that I don’t intend to save – this one I keep until full and then throw away. I also rendered some beef tallow and that is sitting in an old spaghetti sauce jar in the fridge.

  87. 87

    Glad to know I’m not the only one with a jar collection-although yours has mine beat. i find myself buying things just for the jar. Bought the huge jar of Pickles at Sams Wholesale just so I could have the jar for a vase ;). Love your ideas-esp the soap dispenser. Great post!

  88. 88

    LOVE mason jars! We used them as centerpieces in our wedding. Such a simple elegance.

  89. 89

    I too {LOVE} mason jars. I have tons of them. I have some on the shelves by my kitchen window holding dry beans & rice. I have them in my laundry room holding my soaps and bleach. It is so much prettier than looking at the soap containers. And I also using them at my sewing table to corall buttons & bobbins & more. I have them as my toothbrush holder. And I also made my own soap dispenser. Actually, I made all the girls in my family a soap dispenser. My sister is the queen of canning jars except she actually uses hers to can in. I can some too, but not as much as her. I just love when I find a new style of jar that I don’t have. My husband thinks I’m funny because I buy jars all the time.

  90. 90

    Gotta love mason jars! I love looking for them at garage sales and flea markets! I use them for flower vases with a ribbon around them, I think they look better than alot of the vases out there!. My favorite mason jars are the teal colored ones that I’ve found! I use them in my kitchen above my cabinets for decoration.

  91. 91

    I definitely need more mason jars!

  92. 92

    I use mason jars to store my sugar and flour and kitchen spices in sometimes! Especially a sugar-cinnamon mix! My grandma has some of the teal-ish and purple-ish jars, she just left her clear jars in a very sunny window for a year or two and they turned color! :)

  93. 93

    Mason jars are the best! I love the simplicity of them. I too have a cabinet full of them, but forget how many uses they truly have. I’m going to try some of your tricks!

    P.S. I just received the zippered pouch I ordered from you (after coveting them for months!) and wanted to tell you how much I love it. It’s perfect and makes me smile every time I catch a glimpse of it in my purse. Thanks! :)

  94. 94

    I too am bordering on obsessive with mason jars. I do not throw ANY away. (or recycle them for that matter) I think I might have to go to a support group. <3 GREAT shots of all of them! Makes me want to collect even more!!

  95. 95

    I have loved mason jars for years and have used them in many of the same ways you have. I enjoy canning–jelly and salsa. The most recent tning I did was put the boutonniere and wrist corsage that my husband and I wore at our daughter’s wedding in a blue jar. They were yellow roses with pretty yellow ribbon and after they dried I placed them in the jar. They are “lovely” and I can keep them out to enjoy for years to come.

    sushi_noem says:

    I use them to store items I buy in bulk at the natural foods store…raw cashews, quinoa, brown rice…my hubby found me a HUGE one for Christmas one year, that holds my quinoa and makes me smile every time I open that cupboard:)

  97. 97

    I share in your LOVE of mason jars!! I have them in all sizes! I recently saw some blue tinted mason jars on another blog and I simply must find them. They were so pretty!

  98. 98

    We use mason jars to hold some of our “shop” tools; nails, screws, washers, etc. They do not fall apart as easily as the boxes in which those items are sold.
    I also keep one in my laundry room to hold things that come out of pockets before the wash, spare change, trinkets, ear plugs, etc. My husband uses ear plugs often for work and putting them is a jar is a good way to keep them from being scattered around the house.
    BTW, I found you from a link on We Are That Family.

  99. 99

    I’m slightly jealous of your mason jar fetish. For my wedding, I spent months collecting mason jars to use as vases and cups (which were also the favors). Then not everyone took them home and the clean-up crew threw them away! It was a sad day.

    Your pictures make me want to start foraging thrift stores again!

    Mason jars bring back childhood memories when we used to help Mom with the canning. I love your ideas for using these jars around the house.

    Very Good Ideas for the jars! The only downside if there is one to using them in this manner is that now my friends and I who actually use them for what they were made for Canning will have less to buy at yard sales and auctions etc. But I love your ideas! I too use them all over the house! But I use the blue ones most and save the clear ones for food! :)
