What do you do with your jars when you’re done using them? Throw them away? Send them to recycling curb? Wash them and reuse them? I hope you do the last ones. If you haven’t, here are some cool ideas why you should start reusing your plastic and glass jars once you finish the content.
Scandinavian-Style Candle Jars
Great way to recycle glass jars! Simply clean them, attach some wire to make them hangable and put a cute decoration on the outer label part and put a candle inside. See the instruction how to make it here.
What about this hanging storage made of mason jars? Pretty cool idea, don’t you think? All you need to do is to make sure that you glue the jar lid very, very well using the strongest glue you can ever think of. Or better, make a hole and screw the lid onto the bottom of the shelf!

Do you ever have that feeling that you want to remember everything you’ve done every single day but too lazy to write a diary, to blog or to do scrapbooking? Here’s an awesome idea how you can do it without feeling compelled that you have to explain long or spend time finding your glue to put the memory in the scrapbook: “get a memory jar!” Simply leave the jar somewhere you have large access to and write on a post-it every time something worth remembering happens. Genius, right? Source: SteamyKitchen
