5 Mason Jar Projects for the Non Crafty

5 Mason Jar Projects for the Non-Crafty

I like Mason Jars.  I have some real ones ~ like my antique Atlas Jar and my blue Ball Mason Jars ~ and I have some faux ones ~ my inexpensive ones I bought at the Target Dollar Spot.  When I bought my Target jars I also bought two lids ~ one a frog for arranging flowers and one a diffuser-type lid and then a few weeks ago I found a Pump Insert Kit at Target made by Ball.  I was so excited that I decided to finally put together some projects in a very non crafty way and check out whether the Target lids fit the Ball and Atlas Jars and whether the Ball Pump Kit would work with the Target jars….does that make sense?

While my wheels were spinning thinking of what to use my jars for I found a handle and a note card holder made by Darice for mason jars so I thought I’d do something with those as well.  

Mason Jars Neck Clip Canning Holder

 The first accessory I tried was the Neck Clip Card Holder.  This is the ONLY accessory that has to be used with a standard mason jar lid because you have to snap it into the bottom of the band and then insert the lid.
