It’s amazing how many things you can make with Mason jars or upcycled glass jars (pasta sauce jars, baby food jars, etc.)!
20 Festive Christmas Mason Jar Crafts
Here are some tips to help you make the prettiest Christmas Mason jar crafts!
- Paint the outside of the jar. Only paint the outside of the jar if you are going to use it for food storage. Most paints are not edible or food safe.
- Mason Jar Storage. I found these Mason jar storage boxes to keep your decorative jars safe between seasons.
- No need to prime. Make sure you wash your jars before you paint them, but there is no need to prime them. If you choose the right paint, it will stick to the glass.

Oh my goodness, how adorable are these! I have the one with the glitter than was a gift from a friend. I love the one that’s painted all red.
I haven’t received a post from you in a while. Not sure why, so I figured I’d stop by and see what you’re up to. Glad to see you’re still blogging Manuela, as I always find your posts so informative.

Not sure why you’re not receiving posts. We post 4 times a week. I usually send a newsletter twice a week but chemo is kicking my behind so it’s once a week for the next few months. Thanks for dropping by!

These are so great. The Father Christmas one is my favourite. It’s nice to have an idea of what to do with mason jars, now I’m not layering them with salad! BTW, I have a linkie called Life Loving Linkie if you fancy popping by and linking this post and perhaps others? I’m sure these would go down really well – they are really fab.
