Are you like me? Do you hoard mason jars like they’re going out of style. Mason jars are just one of the many things I collect. From time to time I’ve got to come up with some sort of purpose for them, otherwise my husband gets on my case about my collections. Here are ten great mason jar hacks.
UPDATE: One of our craft links was broken, so now we have the original 9 plus a few more!

Bathroom storage jars from Stacey Says. I am planning on using this tutorial with larger jars to put wooden spoons over the stove in the new kitchen.
Decorative jars from Attainable Sustainable that use 3D paint. You could make these for holiday decor!

If you love upcycling as much as I do, I highly recommend checking out the Project Upcycle class on Craftsy. Craftsy offers a wide variety of online classes, but that one was one of my favorites.
