Get Creative :: 7 Ways to Use Mason Jars

I've been collecting mason jars for a while now, but haven't really had a reason to put them to use.  I see ideas all over the Internet on creative ways to use mason jars but can never remember them, so I did a little research and rounded up some of my favorites...

 {Cupcake in a Mason Jar - just layer in a cupcake, frosting, sprinkles and voila! It's ready to eat with a fork. Such a fun way to serve dessert at a party or shower. Found via Somewhat Simple}

 {Jars of Fresh Lemonade - Using smaller mason jars, just add a slice of lemon, screw on the on the top and serve in a bucket of ice. This would also work for cocktails like mojitos and sangria at an outdoor summer party! Found via Pinterest}

 {Mason Jar Herb Garden - I'd love to have one of these in my kitchen and snip fresh herbs when needed for cooking! DIY details found via Camille Styles}

 {Mason Jar Storage - this one is SUPER simple! Just spray paint the lids with chalkbaord paint. Perfect for office / craft supplies and so much more. DIY details found via It All Started with Paint}

 {Silverware Holder - This isn;t a new idea, but it's simple and perfect for parties. Found via Your Home Based Parties}

 {Fabric Lid Mason Jar - A cute and easy way to spruce up mason jars for your craft room or office. DIY details found via The Cottage Home}
