Mason Jar DIY

Mason Jar.

I have kind of a thing for Mason Jars. I use them for vases, yogurt parfaits and I pour my leftover coffee in one and store it in the fridge for ice coffee in the summer. I also use them for coin jars and glassware for lemonade in the summer. Whenever I run across these jars and the older the better in my book I always have a struggle…do I really need more…but they are so handy. Well, recently I have been leaving the little beauties on the shelf because I don’t need anything else to store without it earning its rightful place in the household.



That is until I ran across this DIY from Blissfully Content. A Mason jar soap dispenser! We’ve been invited to a couple of rustic beach houses this summer and I have been searching for something that is a little more personal to fill the last spot in a hostess basket. Not only am I ahead of the game with my hostess gifts and I have a reason to shop for Mason jars again.

Great idea! The great thing about mason jars is the look great by themselves with nothing done to them. Keep collecting... I bet they look awesome. :)

I love this idea for mason jars. I use them as water glasses in the summer and am always looking for new things to do with them!

cool - how do you attach the tops to ensure a tight seal?
