Mason JarsI collect bottles, jars, tins, and other interesting containers.  My kitchen cabinets are filled with empty spaghetti sauce jars, wine bottles, and other stuff I insist I will someday do something creative with.  The recent popularity of Mason jars are right up my alley.

Mason Jars are not only used for canning, they are so versatile and can be used for almost anything.  They can be painted, glued, etched, stenciled, and more.  They can be vases, baking containers, drinking glasses,  gift packaging, and I’m told are used for moonshine!  It only takes a little imagination and very little time to turn jars into something special.

With Thanksgiving this week here are a few ideas on how you can use Mason Jars as part of your holiday decor and gift giving.
