Decorating with mason jars became so much popular that companies have started replicating ‘vintage’ mason jars. If you haven’t created anything yet with mason jars for your home then you are missing out on something that can be amazing. So, here are some DIY mason jar projects you might want to try:
1. Mason Jar Luminaries
To make these luminaries you will need mason jars, craft store gems, LED lights and a hot glue gun. Start gluing the gems to the jars in rows one by one and then throw in an LED light in each.

2. A Pencil Holder
A pencil holder like this will make a great teacher’s day gift or a desk organiser. To make it first you have to pour glue inside a mason jar and move the jar in a swirling pattern to coat its inner surface fully. Pour out the extra glue and then put glitter dust inside, repeat the same swirling process and take out any excess glitter. Paint the lid too and when the jar is dry, use it as a container for pencils.

3. An Air Freshener
You don’t need to purchase chemical filled commercial air fresheners when you can make your own at home. You just have to fill a mason jar till half with baking soda and put a few drops of any essential oil. Then wrap the opening of the jar with a piece of fabric and screw the lid on top of it.

4. A Picture Frame
To make this first you have to paste a stencil on the jar where the picture will be pasted later on. Paint the jar and once dry remove the stencil. Then print the picture you want to display in the size of the stencil and tape it to the inner side of the jar. Throw in a few artificial flowers and you are done.

5. A Tissue Holder
To create this paint a tall wide mouth mason jar. Then trace the size of the lid on a piece of cardboard and leather. Make a ring of the cardboard disc and a cross shaped cut in the leather circle. Glue both to the lid of the mason jar. Put the roll of Kleenex or any other tissue according to the size of the mason jar.
