1. Organizers – Buy them in the dozens and use them in organizing and storing items. They’re particularly useful in the bathroom and study area as you can use them to store small items like cotton balls, bobby pins, pencils, crayons and the like.2. Candle holders – Add a touch of rustic charm to any garden dinner with masons jars used as candle holders. You can add a layer of sand or pebbles inside before putting in the votive candle. Tie a ribbon or add some lace around the rim of the jar for a more feminine touch.3. Salad container – Pack a healthy, nutritious lunch in your mason jar. When stacking your mason jar salad, add the dressing first then grains. Follow this with other salad fillers like dried fruit, cheeses and granola. Top it off with all your leafy greens. When it’s time to eat, simply give your jar a few shakes to mix the dressing. Voila, a healthy lunch!4. Change jar – instead of a piggy bank, the mason jar is a great alternative. Throw in your pennies and loose bills, and see your savings grow.5. Flower vase – No need to invest in expensive crystal vases. The mason jar would do just fine in keeping your flowers fresh. Decorate it with ribbons and lace, or use hemp rope to turn it into a hanging pot.
