Mason Jar Mania

I've always admired the look of mason jars, but never actively went shopping to buy any. So when I found a dozen in my childhood home recently, I excitedly lugged them back to my Brooklyn abode and filled them with a bevy of things. For me, mason jars represent a simple way to display everything from silverware to nail-polish without tacky plastic containers or a cluttered look. It's amazing how a few simple glass jars can elevate random knickknacks to a curated collection of art! I didn't stop there.... I then scoured the internet and found even more uses for mason jars than I could have imagined. The pictures below are some of my favorites, all of which are also do-it-yourself (DIY) projects. While you probably won't find mason jars in the 99 cents store, that doesn't mean they aren't super affordable- you can get a case of 12 jars for less than $10 here
