I love sharing ways to repurpose different items. Today I’m featuring a classic favorite, mason jars.
Mason jars eliminate your storage problems because you can store almost anything that fits its mouth. For instance, you don’t have to worry about common cookie problems, such as losing their crunchiness, by keeping them in an airtight mason jar. So, what are some of the creative things you can do with mason jars?
Here are five ways I’m loving them:
Pie in a Jar
Our Best Bites came up with this genius idea. They’re individual serving sizes and can go straight from your freezer to your oven. These pies in a jar are perfect to have on hand for unexpected guests or a sudden craving of sweet goodness! Find the recipe and directions here.

Are you looking for beautiful and unique centerpieces? Why not paint your empty flower jars yourself?

Bathroom Beauty Storage
Clever! Clever! Clever! Lovely Little Details came up with a great bathroom storage idea. This bathroom beauty storage is perfect for your makeup, nail cutter, and other small objects you use in your shelf vanity.
Sewing Kit in a Jar
Sewing is one of my hobbies. My beautiful grandmother taught me hand sewing when I was a teenager, and I learned to love the craft. Sometimes, people leave sewing materials on surfaces and create safety hazards. So, it pays off to have a dedicated storage container for needle cushions, pins, needles, tape measure, and threads in a mason jar.
Whether we sew or not, we all need a mini mending kit. This is a great DIY gift idea! Find out how to make these by Martha Stewart here.
Heather Bullard made this DIY soap dispenser to keep on her potting bench. I think this would be fun in a bathroom or kitchen as well. You could also bring some antibacterial hand sanitizer to a park picnic or party. For a hostess gift, fill a mason jar up with some yummy smelling hand lotion.
You probably have some great creative ideas in using mason jars to make your life more convenient. Take advantage of their versatile functionality, making them a perfect solution to your storage problems. So, how will you repurpose empty mason jars that have been sitting in your cupboards for so long?
