Some Great DIY Ideas!
41 Easy Things To Do With Mason Jars
This post from Buzzfeed was just too good not to share! From great decor ideas that would be perfect for parties or weddings, to sewing, craft, recipe and fun projects to do with the kids - there’s probably something for everyone.
There are some that we were particularly taken with like No. 26 “Mason Jar Place Settings”. We think that these would make ideal wedding favours - add a pretty napkin, some East of India ribbon and luggage label for your guest’s names, bars of chocolate with homemade wrappers and you’ve got your cutlery, place setting and favour all rolled into one! You could even paint the insides to match your colour theme (see No. 13). No. 3 “Fairy Lights In a Jar” would also make a great party decoration - particularly if you will be entertaining outdoors.
No’s 7 “Children’s Craft Storage Jars”, 21 - “Fireflies in a Jar”, 28 “Make Your Own Sippy Cup” and 38 “Make Your Own Snow Globe” are all great activities for kids and much of the supplies can be easily sourced at your local Ikea or Pound shop.
And finally No’s. 8 and 9 “Yarn / Ribbon Dispensers” are a great way to organise those bits and bobs to help clear up the clutter…
