My Favorite Things - Mason Jar Revival

My friend, "L", recently asked on Facebook…”Should I really buy another mason jar?” As if it were really a question!

Here's a small collection of DIY mason jar projects I’ve found most inspiring lately. If you have a ’must see’ mason jar project, leave a comment at the end of this post with the website so we can all check it out.

Have a seat in the blue velvet chair, relax, and enjoy the show!

Who can resist these cookie mix cuties - spotted at Bakerella.

These mason jar meals are perfect for picnics - spotted at The Decorated Cookie.

They call this one the redneck wine goblet. I'm pretty sure someone out there in blogland can pimp this up into something better! As seen on Random Good Stuff.

Away from the kitchen and on to the home decor. You've probably seen this little blue chica out there already. The perfect clean-up for country chic homes - spotted at Heather Bullard.

It's simple and effective - as seen at Napa Style.

It's no wonder this beauty is for sale at Etsy. BootnGus calls it 'Stardust'.

This casual chandelier was used in a wedding tent, but would be fab in a dining room as well. Spotted at Beth Helmstetter Events

Wow! As seen on Apartment Therapy.

Melissa's Greetings made this lamp inspired from The Big-Ass Book of Crafts.

They were just experimenting and ended up with this little wall light gem - at Kelly + Olive.

I think I would have preferred that all the jars were the same size, but kudos to Liz Marie for this project.

I love the pop of color on these painted jars-turned-vases - as seen on Joy's Hope.

Birthdays, weddings, in a jar would be a fun touch at any special occasion - spotted over at Oh Lovely Day.

I love this pin cushion from Andy Rubio. I wonder when he'll be back from fishing.

Now let's turn our attention from indoors - to outdoors. may not be for the outdoors, but it is photographed outdoors. This jar-bottom necklace pendant is from Bottled Up Designs.

These halloween luminaries made from mason jars make me smile - thanks to Crafts by Amanda.

Featured at Concrete & Lullabies, courtesy of Love Life Images, these wedding flower displays are simple and effective.

There's a tutorial for making these mason jar outdoor lanterns over at Chez Beeper Bebe.

And finally, wouldn't you just love to have this stash from Collectors Weekly so that you could try all of the projects above???

Make sure to check out my Pinterest Mason Jar Board because there's lots more to see where this came from!!!  Do you have one of your own? Or one that you've been inspired by lately? Post a link in the comments so we can all have a look.

Until next time...

p.s.  If you enjoyed this post, I hope you'll become a follower of my blog and a fan on FB.
