What do people do with clear glass jars? Despite the obvious – storing jams and marmalades or dried foods, here are some interesting and creative things that people do with their flint glass jars.

Wedding Jar Fairies

Lisa Kettell makes use of clear glass jars to create these chic wedding jar fairies. She decorates the inside of the jars with some printed photos, labels and other decorative elements, and put a cute flower on the lid. Smart!

Jar Cozies

Angie came up with these jar cozies. If you enjoy knitting, this crocheted jar cozy could be a nice idea for your next knitting project! Not only will the wrap make the jar looking different and attractive, it will also be great as decoration or gift for a loved one.

This is a rather common idea, but still nice to adapt.

Need some fresh ideas what to gift someone on their important day? Why not fill up a jar with something they might like? Homemade cookies, sewing kits etc. Finish it off with decorating the lid and attach a cute label.
