Tutorial Round Up: Mason Jars!

I always find myself getting excited about anything made with mason jars so I wanted to do a round up dedicated to them! Be sure to browse through my old tutorial round ups too! I’ve posted other fun mason jar crafts in the past.

1. These pretty luminaries are made with epsom salt!
2. This is such an easy thing to do with glowsticks and doesn’t it look pretty? :)

3. Here’s a pretty method of making hanging vases for your walls!
4. I would love to have some of these oil lamps on my patio!

      I love the idea to do the glowing jars! However, I have read on the glow in the dark paint and have had the glow sticks and never have either one lasted more than 15-20 mins. :-(

    Do you think you could use rock salt instead of the epsons salts on the jars?

    Saw these at Pinterest where another reader was kind enough to explain how to get to you/the directions for how to make them.

    I really like your work and look forward to trying some new things…. Epsom salt luminaries first. I LOVE the soft pastel colors and bet they’d look beautiful outside in the snow. Will let you know how they turn out!

    May make some at friends out in California when I go out in December for a visit. Would look pretty lining the walkway to a special person’s 60th birthday party! COOL! Thanks so much for sharing a printable version of the instructions!

    I made some of those oil lamps for my wedding. Super easy. :) Plus, we got free baby jars from Craigslist.

      Oh, and for the person who wants directions, look at the link. It’s really as simple as the poster explains:
      1) Get a jar with a screw-top lid.
      2) Use a nail to puncture the lid.
      3) Make a wick out of some old 100% cotton tee shirts, or purchase some from a craft shop. Pull it through the lid. It should not be ANY larger than 1/4. You’ll have a HUGE flame if you do!
      4) Fill the bottle no more than 3/4 of the way full with oil. Depending on where you plan to use it, there is patio oil (outside) or oil for hurricane lamps (inside).
      5) Put the lid with the wick on the bottle. Let sit about 1 hour before use. Light, enjoy.

    This may be hard to believe, but I just found out about Pinterest…I know…CRAZY right? I’m a chef by trade, and can be pretty creative in the kitchen, but when it comes to crafts…not so much! Actually not at all, however, I happened onto one of your crafts with the frosted jars, and I can say, I actually created my first ever craft! Woo Hoo right? I am retired now, and I think I finally found something to do with my time! I am making storage bins next…this is awesome! Thanks so much for sharing your gift!
