Isn’t it awesome when brand-new decorations materialize out of thin air? Courtney tells us, “The best part about this craft, was that I already had all the materials I needed.” Over at Crafts by Courtney, she’s showing us how she used a few supplies she already had on hand–washi tape, thread spools, and mason jars–to create some kicky new Christmas decor!
Self-proclaimed “jar hoarder” Dee M. of Meatloaf and Melodrama dug into her growing stash to create a set of cuter-than-cute jack-o-lantern jars. This quick project would be a great one to do with kids!
Over at Clean and Scentsible, Jenn had an old planter on her porch that she had perked up with paint two years before. But recently, she noticed that her planter was no longer adding a pop of color to her porch, due to rainwater damage.
Mason jars make nice vases as they are, but Krista of The Happy Housie took hers over the top with the addition of some paint.
Here’s a fun project for spring decor that will let you use any glass jars you’ve been saving. Amy from Stow and Tell U came up with this project that was inspired by the speckled blue egss of robins that are such a part of spring.
Marcy blogs at Day 2 Day Supermom. Admittedly, she has a “thing” for Mason jars. So when she saw an outdoor chandelier on Pinterest made from canning jars, she knew she had to make one of her own. After all, Marcy had plenty of empty Mason jars, and it wasn’t hard to scavenge a nice looking piece of wood from her husband’s project pile.
Katie of Upcycled Treasures has been eyeing projects that make use of vintage yardsticks for a while, waiting for a chance to make one of her own. When she found a stash of old yardsticks on a recent shopping trip, she decided to combine them with her collection of mason jars to make something unique.
I’m super excited to share this lighting makeover with you from Tim at Marty’s Musings. Tim is a painting contractor and has access to quite a few household items that are being tossed during remodels or moves. This dated chandelier with shades was one of those tosses.
