Really . . . who hasn’t heard or seen a gazillion ways to paint and decorate Mason jars? All you have to do is click on Pinterest and search for Mason jar crafts and you’ll find every different way to use a Mason jar that you never dreamed of before.
But it is still fun to come up with new ideas of how to embellish these pretty jars (although if I had a shelf-full of those gorgeous blue Mason jars, the last thing I would do with them is to paint them or in any other way change them . . . . but for the plain old ordinary Mason jars, that’s a different story!) especially now that we are making progress on painting and reorganizing my sewing room / design studio. I’m looking for all kinds of ideas for using jars of all shapes and sizes for storage, plus just for looking cute on a shelf.
So as I was out visiting some of the other bloggers in last week’s Favorite Things party, I came across a few ideas that I think I’ll try since I’ve got all of the paint, ribbon, buttons, beads, twine, lace, and all kinds of other stuff sitting on the counter tops waiting to be sorted and put away. Some of my favorites are really practical, and some are just pretty, but they have all inspired me to add more Mason jars to my collection.
What would you do with an empty jar? I\’ve got a few ideas, but I\’m looking for more creative inspiration!

Even if you don’t need to make tiny sewing kits (although this is an adorable idea for a beginning seamstress!), think of all the different ways this idea could be put to good use in a sewing room! I already keep my buttons in jars, but this little pincushion on top just adds a touch of whimsy that is perfect – guess I’ll be dressing up my button jars soon!
Tea, coffee, ribbon, lace, buttons, beads . . . . whatever you need to organize and store in your home, having a shelf filled with these adorable vintage-inspired embellished Mason jars would be practical and definitely pretty!
This might be just what I’ve been looking for to keep my paint brushes, markers, colored pencils, and gel pens organized. I’ve used pretty mugs before and that works OK, but if I paint a few jars to color-coordinate with my newly-updated sewing room / design studio, that would solve one storage and organization problem and look pretty all lined up on the windowsill or shelf.
I love the look of painted white jars with burlap and rhinestones . . . that’s just me . . . but some of the more colorful jars are really making me think twice about all the different ways to use these versatile little treasures. I’ve found so many other ideas for storage and organization using painted and embellished jars, that I can’t wait to finish the painting project. Looking forward to working on that more this weekend – and in tomorrow’s post I’ll share a few more storage ideas that I’ve found. Won’t be long and I’ll actually be able to get back to work on my own projects! Can’t wait to get THIS home update project behind me.
So for this week’s Favorite Things Party, I hope that I have inspired you to give this “old” idea a “new” twist. I would love to hear how you have used Mason jars in your home, kitchen, studio, or any other place that they come in handy.
