Mason Jar Craft Storage

I purchased these vintage canning jars at a roadside flea market in Machias, Maine on our way home from Canada. Only $2.00 each and I loved the covers. There is a glass insert and then a metal top with an opening in it. I'll remove and save the glass insert from the top of each jar (never know when I might need one of those!).

This one will sit on the kitchen counter, next to the phone and right above my "junk drawer", to hold string.

You could do something similar with a Mason Jar with a regular metal top by just drilling a hole in the cover...

Or by  sliding the string out the side as was done in this photo, holding yarn, from Home Made Simple.

I'll use my taller jar to store dispense ribbons in the craft room.
Simple, useful and cute...what could be better?

While I was thinking about canning jar storage ideas, I came across this clever use of Mason jars at Epheriell Designs. I think that this would be a fun project to replicate on a craft room wall

I also love this idea for sewing room storage from Just Call Me Miss DIY.
What's you favorite use for canning jars?

Hi cheryl - Love the jars! I have never seen the one's with that type of top. Real handy for crafts. Michael's had a video running last week taking the top and turning it into a pin cushion that I want to make. Will have to let you know or post it if I find it.

As a collector of vintage canning jars, I loved your post! I have blue ones lined up on my bathroom windowsill, holding qtips, cotton balls, hair scrunchies, emery boards, nail polish, the list goes on! It looks pretty with the sun shining through.

Now I need to add some to my craft room!

I just want to share my experience
and testimony here... I was married for 3years to my husband and all of a
sudden, another woman came into the picture... He started hailing me and he was
abusive. But I still loved him with all my heart and wanted him at all
cost…then he filed for divorce. My whole life was turning apart and I didn’t
know what to do .he moved out of the house and abandoned the kids... so someone
told me about trying spiritual means to get my husband back and introduced me
to a spell caster called Chief Priest Amros…so I decided to try it reluctantly. Although I didn’t believe in all those things… then when he did the special prayers and spell, after 2days, my husband came back and was pleading. He had realized his mistakes. I just couldn’t believe it... Anyways we are back together now and we are happy. In case anyone needs this man, his email address His spells is for a better life. Again his
email is or call him via his mobile number +2347060458352

Don't get wasted I am here to talk about my past experiences with spell casters..i had problems with my relationship and i did all to make sure that my woman never break up with me..all in the midst of this, i lost concentration at work and things went really bad for me as i lost my job too..the little money i saved was what i tried to get my wife back with even if i will loose all..i was too desperate and i was taken advantage of as i lost the same money on two different casters from Nigeria. of course i trusted them too much and never knew they did nothing for me so my woman went ahead with breaking up with me..i confronted them that they failed their promise and ever since then, i have never heard a world again from them..That was how fake casters ended my relationship with my woman and i planned i was going to stop everyone like them..i met with another that promised me to get her back to me and i almost laughed and said it was another lie, but he wasn't as he did cast a love spell on her and now we are talking of why we did break up and coming back together in just two days and not months like the other did made me see why you have to open you eyes and think before the liars here plays with your heart and trust like a toy.{GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM}tel.+2348057266712..he can also help you to solve any problem…Lol I am very happy now.Claudy

My name is Hidago Daniel. I made a promise to tell others the wonderful work of he who brought my ex girlfriend back to me. He is doctor UZOYA who is a spell doctor and was able to bring back my ex. My ex left me the very day she met her friend in my place, of which, unknowingly to her, I had nothing to do with her. She grew furious at the very sight of her friend and I was confused if she was initially mad with her. Days into weeks and weeks into months, my ex girlfriend did not speak a word to me as she went away. What was I to do? That was how i contacted doctor UZOYA on the Internet who after some procedures and progress, brought back my ex. Words are not enough to express my feelings and what doctor UZOYA has done for me. He really lifted a heavy load off my chest. To all those out there, please, don't think your situation is too primitive or too hard and complicated for anyone to understand. Contact doctor UZOYA and find joy once again, contact him on; also talk to him on +1(301) 909 8775
