9 Creative Uses for Mason Jars

Trend Tuesday_ Mason JarsHey guys! It’s Trend Tuesday and today we are featuring my FAVORITE thing ever: The Mason Jar!

I don’t know when mason jars got so big, but it seems like nowadays they are everywhere you look: at the grocery store, craft stores (Joann’s & Michael’s), on wedding blogs, Pinterest, and all over people’s homes.

I personally love using mason jars for storing bulk food such as chia seeds, granola, and spices. I also use them in my office for holding pens, tiny spools of twine, and flowers.

Here are 9 fun uses for mason jars to try out!
