I absolutely love mason jars. I didn’t realize how much until a few years ago! They are super convenient and there are so many different way to use mason jars. Today I thought I would share 8 of my favourite Mason Jar Hacks that you will want to try.
8 Mason Jar Hacks
My first mason jar hack, the reason I started using them more often, is drinking water in them. For some reason, it’s just fun to drink out of a mason jar. They are also perfect for smoothies, those awesome summer drinks and even frappes!
2. Chia Pudding
Chia pudding has become one of our favourite breakfasts. Not only is it healthy, it tastes like dessert. I used to make it with a whisk, but then I tried making it in a mason jar and it was so much easier! You just put in all the ingredients, put the lid on and then shake, shake, shake. Even the kids like doing it! It’s so much easier and more convenient than a whisk! Hence one of my favourite mason jar hacks.
Our favourite chia pudding recipes are Vanilla Chia Pudding and Chocolate Chia Pudding.
3. Mason Jar Herb Garden
This is on my list to try because I love the idea of having fresh herbs at my fingertips when I’m cooking! And of course mason jars would make that indoor herb garden so much more awesome! Here’s a tutorial on how to easily plant a mason jar herb garden.
4. Snow Globe
When it comes to mason jar hacks, we can’t forget about crafts of course! One of the kid’s favourite project to date are these fun mason jar snow globes! They are simple to make and so lovely to display. And of course one of the main supplies is mason jars.
5. Food Storage
Another one of the easiest uses for mason jars and one of my favourite mason jar hacks is food storage. They are such a great way to store dry goods in cupboards and pantries! From almonds and teas, to spices and candy, mason jars make the perfect storage unit and let’s be honest, it looks pretty too!
6. Lava Lamp
Who doesn’t love a groovy lava lamp? We’ve made lava lamps in the past in long water bottles, but they would look pretty cool in a mason jar too, don’t you think?
We’ve all seen those pretty scented candles in the stores. Did you know you can actually make them at home too? Here’s a tutorial for a Lemon Beeswax Mason Jar Candle.
8. Tissue Holder
And finally, if you’d rather have your kleenex out of the box and in something pretty, these mason tissue holders are perfect. They look fabulous, plus they are a fun and easy DIY project.
