Favorite Mason Jars for Crafting:
Ready to start your projects? You’ll need some jars and my first tip is to keep an eye out for vintage jars (garage sales, estate sales) and check stores like TJMaxx/Homegoods and Marshalls to find unique glass jars at a low price.
Also consider recycling jars. Next time you finish off a jar of jam, pasta sauce, or other pantry good, save the jar and clean it well. Recycle for crafts!
Here are my favorite jars for crafts, gifts, and desserts:
- 4 oz mini storage jars with lids (so cute!)
- 4 oz jars for desserts (I use these for mason jar desserts like my French Silk Pie minis)
- 8 oz jars (or these quilted ones)
- 16 oz jars
- 16 oz jars with larger opening
- Wide mouth 32 oz jars (the wide mouth makes it so easy to fit gifts inside)
- Smooth side 32 oz jars (great for adding vinyl text or images with your Cricut)
- Vintage Blue Jars
I hope you found a few fun ideas for your Valentine’s Day crafts on this list. Remember, if all else fails…remember, just fill a pretty mason jar with some cute candies and add a gift tag! It’s easy!
Happy Crafting! ~Ellen
