I finally put the jars to good use! There are still more out in the garage, but here's what I did with these ones:
1. Notion Jar
I used a couple jars to display some crafty eye candy on my sewing table. I picked up a stash of sewing goodies at a garage last fall, but they've been sitting in a shoe box until now.
3. Soap Dispenser
I've been needing to upgrade our much-used plastic dispensers and this was super-easy to make! You can use the pump from any bottle and just cut the tube to fit your jar. I hammered a nail through the lid to make a hole large enough to fit the pump.
4. Memento Jar
I can't go to the beach without combing the shore for souvenirs, and I found these rocks with my husband during our honeymoon in Washington state. I didn't have enough to fill a bowl or vase, but a jar is just right for a small collection.
