Putting Stuff in Jars

My obsession with Mason Jars started long ago before their surge of popularity over the past decade. As a result, I have ended up with boxes of empty jars without any idea what to do with them. Over the years I have seen some very creative ways in which to use Mason Jars but using them as decor in my home is probably my favorite. There are so many colors and brands that I simply cannot get enough. Some people have asked me how I come up with such creative ways to display my vintage glass so I figured I would let you in on one of my biggest secrets: I put stuff in the jars.┬áIt is that simple. I am going to share with you a few examples here in hopes to spark a little inspiration in your own home. All you need is a jar and stuff. You don’t have to be Joanna Gaines to accomplish this simple decorating hack to add a little spice to your walls, shelves, or countertops.
