Do More With Mason Jars
The Mason jar has been around a long time. Philadelphia tinsmith John Landis Mason invented the Mason jar as a means to store and preserve perishable foods. Amazingly, they're still used today for the same purposes … if not for more crafty endeavors. So, we compiled a list of our favorite do-it-yourself Mason jar crafts from around the web:
1. Mason Jar "Sippy Cups"
Jessica, from the blog Two Shades of Pink, shows us how to add a festive pop to any table setting using just a Mason jar, colorful paper and a hole punch.

2. Mason Jars with Puffed Lettering
We are smitten with Pure and Noble's puffy lettering on Mason jars — which she hand-wrote using a glue gun and puffy paint.

Finally, we couldn't resist sharing this fun and colorful heart-shaped chandelier created by BootsNGus (available for purchase on Etsy.com, $215.00).
