Mason jars aren’t just for canning anymore. These molded glasses are now trendy to use as flower pots, soap dispensers, drinking cups, and so much more! Lindsey Granger is testing out three popular DIY Mason jar ideas to see if they’re fabulous or a big fail.
1. Mason Jar Bottle Opener
You’ll need a jar, a drill, a pipe clamp, some wood and a bottle opener. First, we're drill in the bottle opener. Then measure where your mason jar should be so it's not hanging off the wood and drill in the pipe clamp. Finally, just lock your mason jar into your contraption.
2. Mason Jar Air Freshener
You’ll need a jar, baking soda, essential oil, a screwdriver and a hammer. Start by making holes in the Mason jar lid. Add a cup of baking soda and top with 10 drops of peppermint essential oil. This one is so easy and smells amazing.
3. Mason Jar Goblet
You’ll need a jar, super glue and a candlestick. Now, paint the end of the candlestick with the super glue and center your mason jar on it. Finally, tape around the glass to hold and wait 24 hours. This goblet is another simple one to do. CHEERS!
These clever DIY Mason jars make great gifts with very little effort.
