flea market finds- glass jars

This week I picked up a collection of big glass jars. They are in so many op-shops, and so cheap, I really ought to get more. I was planning on using these ones for the pantry, to store dry things like almonds and lentils and rice.

But when I brought them home I got to thinking of all the things I could make with them. I've made these snow globes/pincushions and party candle holders from jars, and use them to hold my crafty bits and pieces; but there are so many possibilities. Hannah wrote a great article on uses for jam jars here, that's a good place to start.

I'm going to go write a list.

  1. Love those pin cushions! Great ideas!

  2. Your snow globe jam jars are absolutely adorable! Makes me want to make some right now
