42 Easy Things To Do With Mason Jars


1. Mason Jar + Vase Gems = Amazing DIY Candle Jar… So pretty in the dark!

Things you need: Mason Jar, Marbles (the flat stone kind), Hot Glue Gun. First make sure you clean your jar. Nobody wants a gross looking jar! Next start from the bottom of the jar and glue a line of marbles. You may not be able to squeeze a perfect line in every time but do not sweat it. As long as the jar looks filled, no one will notice one marble not in line with the bottom row. After you finish gluing all the way to right before the rim of the jar, go through and make sure you have no hot glue strings and you are done! Now you have a beautiful new jar to gift or display in the home.

2. Make an Oil Lamp

raisedincotton.typepad.com Fill two-thirds of the jar with lamp oil and secure the lid. Place a cotton wick in the jar and let it sit for about one hour before lighting so the oil soaks up into the wick. Nail a hole into the lid and pull the wick about a quarter inch out of the hole.
