Mason Jar Crafts

Pin It

I’ve been on the hunt for mason jars lately, stopping in thrift shops here and there and collecting one or two at a time. Then it finally occurred to me to ask my grandmother if she had any saved up.  Sure enough, she was beyond excited to unload some of the boxes upon boxes of mason jars she has saved up in one of her storage rooms. I hauled them back home with me now I am so excited… four dozen of the pint size and four dozen of the quart size, all ready and waiting for craft time in my garage!  A few inspirational craft ideas that I’ll be trying…

    I tend not to drop a great deal of comments, but i did a few
    searching and wound up here Mason Jar Crafts | Texas Farmers Daughter.
    And I actually do have a few questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or does it look like a few of the comments appear like they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    I’ve been on the lookout for uses for vintage mason jars. The craft ideas are great, and I like the way people put ingredients in them to give for gifts with a recipe.
    I’ve created a page on Squidoo to hold all the ideas I’m finding. From the number of pins on Pinterest, I’d say it’s a hot topic.

    Have lots of fun with your grandmother’s jars.
