  70. Summer says:

    I love mason jars! I actually made over 50 mason jar lanterns for my wedding using wire. You simply wrap the wire around the lip of the jar then make a wire ‘handle’ to hang. I filled the bottoms with some sand, some sea glass bits and a votive candle. We hung them from the trees and the fence posts at our backyard reception. They lent a very magical and romantic candle lit glow to our celebration. I actually managed to find many vintage mason jars at thrift stores all over town for .50 to 1.00 each. We still have several of the mason jar lanterns and bring them out regularly for parties – what a wonderful reminder of our special day.

  336. Jani says:

    Sitting on the front porch swing, the sweat on the mason jar running through your fingers on a hot July day. The anticipation of your cool drink (lemonade or sweet tea) to refresh you from the inside out. Another great memory of a mason jar for me is watching my grandmother can green beans and pickles. She would just tell stories and sing songs. The magic of a mason jar :)

  337. Andrea says:

    I also love to use mason jars to fill with dry ingredients needed to make cookies. I print out the recipe, string with ribbon, and tie around the top of the jar before sealing the top. It makes great gifts for teachers too.

  350. Karen says:

    Fig perserves. Love the necklace.

  351. Andrea says:

    The latest idea for great usage of mason jars was in my kids arts and crafts area. Using the shelf about the desk area I took the top lid of the jar and screwed it into the shelf. Then I filled the jars with buttons, stickers and other crafty things. The kids are able to twist and untwist the jar on their own and the jars hang from the lid. Cool huh?

  352. Ally says:

    I would love to fill mason jars with spring flower! They’re great to store little trinkets, and have such clean look. Hope to win :)

    Tweet Tweet!! Love ALL of your jewelry!

  361. Kimberly says:

    And finally I have just started collected all those extra buttons we get with new clothes and all my fortunes from fortune cookies and putting them in a mason jar on my desk. Not sure why or how I came up with this, but makes s great little statement, I try to have some of the fortunes showing through glass

    I use them for dry ingredients such as choc. chips, raisins, pasta, etc. But they really look pretty with wild flowers in at our cottage. Going to have to try the seashells and sand though.

  377. Caiti says:

    Being a science teacher, I always have little expirements going on around my classroom and home. Mason jars make the best containers for those expirements. Nothing is more beautiful in a mason jar than sugar and salt crystals. I have about five sitting on my windowsill right now filled with different colors of sugar crystals (rock candy!) and colored, perfumed bath salts.

  378. GretchenG says:

    I don’t own real glasses; I just use mason jars. Most girls love it, and guys think I’m a little odd, but I love them. And flowers are delightful in them, as well as buttons, coffee beans, ribbons, pens, paintbrushes… You know, all the important stuff :)

  379. Diana says:

    Usually I put flowers in mason jars. Last summer, however, I had my first experience canning tomatoes. Now that it’s winter, I love, love, love the fact that I have garden tomatoes to use in recipes!! :)

    Happy Day!

  392. Lisa R. says:

    There is one in our guest room that has the Hersey’s Easter candy eggs in it. The spring colors and match quilt in the room perfectly!

  393. … and I shared on Facebook :).

  394. Jennifer says:

    I actually started using them to put a little piece of our family vacation in! Our daughter is 3 and when she was 2, we took our first family vacation to the beach. In the jar is sand and seashells that my daughter and I collected. Then I labeled the jar ‘Pawleys Island 2009′ w/ a piece of Scotch tape. I did the same in 2010, and I intend to continue over the years. They look so cute sitting next to each other on a shelf.

    I got the idea from Young House Love and then put my own spin on it. :)

  395. Tina says:

    I love to put March Lilies, Forsythia bush, and/or Redbud blossoms in a Mason jar and set on my dining room table. To me, that is the first sign that spring really has “sprung.”

They started as his treasures and now they’re mine because they represent the little boy I will forever hold in my heart.

  400. Susan says:

    What a generous giveaway. Lisa! Thank you for the chance to win your beautiful necklace! :)
    I’ve used Mason jars for many things like catching fireflies and collecting seashells, but right now they’re holding paint brushes.

  636. I once heard that its handy to nail the tops to the bottom of a shelf, and then put stuff in the jars and screw them into their lid, thus hanging them from the shelf. Seems pretty clever.

    My grand daughter (aged 2) always leaves “treasures” tucked underneath/between the sofa cushions. Things like paperclips, pennies, a sock,animal crackers, her little books, rocks from the neighbor’s driveway…. We put them in a jar on the kitchen window sill so we’ll have them when she comes back. But then, she always brings MORE treasures to leave. A little “love” for grandma and grandpa to find when she’s gone….

  647. LISA says:

    When I was newly married, we went to a country restaurant that served beverages in Mason jars. I thought that was so clever and so I copied the idea- – -using Mason jars for my everyday glasses. They even sell them with mug handles now!

  764. Marie says:

    At Christmas time I fill them (different sizes) with cranberries and water and float a cranberry tea candle. And in the spring and summer I put flowers in them

  765. Stacy says:

    I keep a large mason jar on my island with pretzels inside. My son loves to snack on them. Also the small ones work great for dips or nuts on a veggie or fruit platter.

  773. Mary Jo says:

    My granddaughter lives on the east coast so when I have the chance to go to the beach with her–we collect sea shells. When I bring them home to Indiana they go into a mason jar so I can be reminded of the great time we had together. Makes my day to see that memory everyday.

  774. Wow Lisa, this is incredibly generous of you! We love using mason jars as vases for flowers. Theyre less formal than a vase, hold alot of flowers and just look great!

  775. heatherly says:

    I use mason jars for anything….storing coffee or nuts and displaying river rocks! Love to see some of the other ideas people had. :)

  776. I love to use them for canning peaches! Yum!

  777. Lisa says:

    All of the above. Seriously. They’re pretty much in every room of my house, being utilized. My new favorite way to put them to work is using the 1/2 pint jars for my granddaughters drinking glasses. Little girls drinking from these small cuties is so adorable.

  778. Melanie says:

    my 4-year-old son is a collector, sorter, filler-and-dumper … so he has appropriated many a mason jar to fill with coins, legos and other small treasures.

  779. faith says:

    I have a great mason jar with a very rusty lid. Inside I filled it with old buttons. Looks very country.

  780. Diana says:

  783. Jess C. says:

    I love cocktails in mason jars with pretty garnishes!

  784. Erin says:

    I love to use mason jars for flowers and to store my son’s treasures from the outdoors. As soon as I have the time and money to start canning, making yummy food to put in them will be next!

  785. SusanC says:

    I used mason jars from my mom’s home, put light blue cut glass and a candle and lined the walkway for our son’s wedding! Absolutely beautiful plus it was a light from Heaven as my Mom, Dad and sister are in Heaven!

  786. Jaimie says:

    I use mason jars for EVERYTHING! And I really do mean everything. They hold pens and pencils, beautiful flowers, hot glue sticks, makeup pencils and brushes, hair accessories, coins, and little treasures from my kids. They are the perfect container for almost everything!

  787. Jess C. says:

    We also have a few mason jars hanging on our back porch with tea lights inside, rustic lanterns of course.

    i love to put fresh flowers in them :) and put them on the kitchen table

  790. Sara says:

    My husband and I use mason jars to keep pipe tobacco fresh. Every time we open one up it fills the room!

    Oh I haven’t used mason jars since I caught lightening bugs and put them in jars when I was little. Love your beautiful jewelry!

  792. Erin says:

    Thanks for the chance to win. This necklace has been my favorite. The comments about buttons remind me of my childhood. My aunt gave me a huge jar of buttons as a gift one year and I would often dump them out and explore the colors and textures and then put them all back to store. :)

  793. kate says:

    i love to use mason jars to hold my colored pencils, buttons, flowers and change…the possibilities are endless! :)

  794. Nina says:

    Love your necklace. Mason jars bring back great memories of my grandmother canning her wonderful sweet and sour pickles! We have a raised bed in our backyard and grow lots of tomatoes! We pick ’em, wash ’em and put ’em right in a pot! Canning tomato suace has become our family tradition. Opening a mason jar full of suace in the middle of winter is like opening a jar of summer sunshine! I like the wide mouth ones the best!

  795. Nina says:

    Leaving comment on my blog!

  796. Heather G. says:

    Right now, mason jars sit on shelves in our son, Cooper’s, room (20 mos.)…they are filled with new “old school” pencils, little green army men, dominoes and another with blue monkeys from the Barrel of Monkeys game.

  797. Ashley says:

    I use them for all sorts of things. Candles, canning, seashells, and just plain decor. I love the look of them. :]

    I collect vintage buttons and then put them in mason jars. They look so pretty in them! Love to use them as vases for flowers also.

  799. Amy says:

    I love to use mason jars to make cookies in a jar, and give them as presents to friends and loved ones!

  800. Heather G. says:

    Along with our kiddo’s mason jar display in his room, my own favorite mason jar collection is filled with my great grandma’s collection of thread – all on wooden spools. The colors are so bright! The robin’s egg blue spool was the color inspiration for my wedding dress…it sits at the top of the jar.

  801. kyla says:

    I love to use mason jars as art… I put leftover yarn strands or small balls of yarn in them and display them on a table or shelf.

  802. Kerrie says:

    I would use the jar for memories. My friend who past away while in high school…his family has a jar and whenever they get any special memories about Matt they put them in the jar. I loved the idea of it all and that is how I would use a jar. xoxoxo I love your designs!

  803. vicki says:

    Right now, of the hundreds of Mason jars that I have sitting around this house, the one that has Jelly Bellys in it is my FAVORITE!!

  806. Michele T says:

    You know, I really don’t use Mason jars but I’m getting more and more into vintage stuff. I need to get some and use them for stuff like putting pens & pencils in, spring flowers, old buttons.

  807. Melissa says:

    I’m actually doing a “mason jar theme” at my wedding – I’ve made 65 jars of homemade jams, the centerpieces will have flowers in big and little mason jars, and candles in little mason jars. At home, we use mason jars for our canning, as vases, and to store dry beans and pasta in. What can I say, I love mason jars!

  808. Melanie says:

    facebooked it too!

  809. Amanda says:

    I love a simple flower arrangement in a mason jar … there’s nothing sweeter. Well, maybe if it was filled with candy. :)

  810. Scarlett says:

    I use Mason jars to collect change around the house. Then when the jar is full, we spend the money on a family treat!

  811. Heather G. says:

    Another favorite mason jar in our house is tall and blue – a few of my husband’s grandmother’s 1950’s knitting needles sit in.

  812. wendy6 says:

    Iced tea in a mason jar is a classic, but I love to give friends a cupcake in a mason jar for birthdays and special occassions!

  821. Paige says:

    My favorite ways to use Mason jars are for flowers, candy and pens/pencils. Right now I have some bright yellow daffodils on my kitchen window sill in a mason jar…they look great! Ove the summer we gave away some gifts to people with fresh tomato sauce from our garden, in mason jars of course!

  822. Allison says:

    Mason jars are for: Buttons, loose change before it goes into the wash, clippings of new plants starting to take root, whole grains and dried beans, home-made granola (my favorite!) & bath salts–to sit in my pantry or tie a pretty ribbon around and give to friends, and for drinking smoothies :)

  825. Megan says:

    i tweeted it

  828. Jill J says:

    we use them mainly as drinking glasses and to hold anything else!

  829. Christine says:

    I love making lanterns out of them. We have done this as a camping craft with kids….tissue squares glued to the outside, beaded wire handles, a little candle and off on a night hike we go. Magical!

  830. Michele says:

    To put flowers in!

  831. mandi says:

    i love the “old barn” look of mason jars. I use them for decorations with candles or rocks, in the bathroom for q-tips and stray buttons…I’d like to transfer all my spices to small jars and add erasable chalkboard labels.

  832. Kristy S. says:

    Little treasures that my children find! Little tokens of LOVE!

  833. Tricia says:

    Love to store vintage buttons to inspire me!

  841. Angie says:

    One of my holiday traditions is to put tea light candles in them and line them up along our driveway for Christmas Eve. So pretty in the snow. Also fun the the summer too!

  842. Judi says:

    To Put Flowers In, Love that simple look.

  843. Blair says:

    I love filling them with daisies in the spring and acorns in the fall! Such a cute and inexpensive way to liven up a space :)

  844. Gloria says:

    I love drinking freshly brewed iced tea in them. I like clear glass for all drinks, but for some reason, iced tea in the summer with loads of ice and a freshly cut lemon swimming around looks best in a mason jar!!!

  845. Melissa says:

    I use them for flowers.

  846. Kim M says:

    Great for flowers, art supplies, ribbons, old clothes pins in the laundry room, I have some that have been made into lamps filled with old marbles. Pretty much anything that will fit looks better in a Mason jar.
    My favorites are the old blue ones.

  847. Megan says:

    I actually just ordered this necklace and it is on it’s way to me right now. It is a birthday gift from my parents for my 25th birthday!!

  848. Kristy says:

    Drinking out of them! I’ve been collecting/thrifting these cute Mason jars with handles. They are my newest favorite finds.

  849. Megan says:

    If I won, I have a couple of people in mind to give it to. First, probably my mom…we have a close relationship. Or one of my good friends.

  850. Darcy says:

    They are great to drink out of, especially ice cold lemonade!

  851. Amber says:

    I use them for candles. I put little tea lights in the pint jars, and votive candles in the quart jars.

  852. Laura says:

    I use mason jars as candle holders – I set a few together with different sizes/colors of candles and it makes a cute decorative centre piece for my kitchen table! or any room in the house :)

  853. eeekkk!! I love mason jars and this necklace. A friend used them on the candy bar at her wedding. So cute and affordable!

  854. I also think that wildflowers look gorgeous in a mason jar ๐Ÿ˜‰

  855. We are using mason jars of all shapes and sizes to decorate the tables at our women’s retreat this weekend. Our small group just put them together last night and they are soooo cute!

    We have five jars together as a centerpiece. A simple ribbon tied around a big one in the middle holds a cluster of white daisies and pink tulips. Two smaller ones hold sea salt and tealights (the battery ones as we can’t have candles lit in the church building). Because every women’s even needs treats, one has colored hard candy to match our theme colors. And my favorite, one for collecting quarters for the laundry ministry to the homeless in our community.

    Turned out so simple and cute… wish I had a picture to share!

  856. Tammy M. says:

    My favorite use for Mason jars is to stick sand, beans, dried corn, etc in the bottom and stick a candle in it…then put a nice ribbon around the top…instant accent piece…love mason jars!

    Lisa ~ I have to comment about this piece…this is the next necklace I am ordering once I get the money to treat myself. This is the perfect necklace as my hubby’s grandma passed away 7 years ago…one of my fondest memories is when my hubby and I would go up to visit his grandparents once a week they always had coffee brewing on the stove. One night while visiting I offered to make the coffee…there was a glass jar on the stove that to me looked like sugar…so in went two heaping teaspoons of what I thought was sugar into the coffee…needless to say the sour faces I got after they drank their coffee because the jar actually contained salt!!! We laughed about that often and when granny passed away the only thing I wanted was that salt jar…it is one of my very favorite possessions, even with chips and the plastic coffee lid on top. When I see that jar it just reminds me of the love Granny and Papa had for their grandson (my hubby) and me. Thanks for making jewelry that really speaks from the heart.

  857. Lastly mason jars are great to make “cake in a jar” with. A friend was able to do this for her husband in Afghanistan for his birthday and it was still fresh when it arrived!

  858. Sarah says:

    I like to use mine for food that I buy at the bulk food store. Rice, dried beans or candy :).

  859. Holly says:

    Oh, how I love mason jars. So versatile–and so eco-friendly. :-)

    My favorite use is to bring lemonade w/ raspberries or blueberries floating in it to work with me in the summertime. Perfect afternoon treat–and I can pretend that I’m sitting on a lovely wraparound porch and listening to the chirping birds while I sip.

  860. Vanessa says:

    I usually take my lunch on mason jars. But, we also use them as glass for water or other cold beverage. Love mason jars!

  861. Ashley Chattaway says:

    What don’t I use them for?? Let’s see, we drink use them to drink sweet tea. And I use them to store my crochet hooks and my quilting safety pins. I’ve been collecting them for years and just love them!

  862. Alaina says:

    I use them for to hold cotton balls in the bathroom. :) Gives it a clean, simple look. :)
