5 Unique and Crafty Uses for Mason Jars!

After my baby shower, I was left with more than 30 mason jars lying around my house. They were just too precious to throw away and somehow I wanted to find a way to display them. And then of course, after hours of searching Pinterst, I was overwhelmed with all the different ways people were repurposing them. They were so unique and clever, from sewing kits to bathroom organizers–the options were endless.

Scroll through to check out a few of my favorite uses for mason jars.
