Everything is better in a mason jar.
We love a good mason jar project and so does a good chunk of the population. Mason jars are nostalgic and let’s face it…inexpensive. With that in mind, these crafts are great to make and sell for your hobby or business.
WHERE TO FIND MASON JARS

WHAT SIZE JAR TO USE
Does size really matter?
There are many sizes of mason jars available. I’m of the salvage mindset and use what you got. But, you will want to pay attention to the function of the jar to see if a different size will work. For example, a jar that would hold utensils might not translate to a small pint jar.
- Is this jar used for a particular purpose and can a different jar still function in the same way?
- Pay attention to large-mouth jars vs. small. This change could also hamper functionality.
