For the Love of Primitive Antiques

Mason Jar Inspirations

Mason jars aren’t just for canning anymore.  They make great decorations for your primitive, shabby chic, or country home and in some instances they can even decorate an urban or industrial prim home.  If you look on the internet, there are so many craft ideas that can be done with canning jars, the inspirations are limitless.  One of the my favorite craft ideas that I have seen just lately is how to make an old fashion snow globe.  I don’t have enough time to make them for this Christmas as gifts for family, friends, and neighbors but I will be busy putting a bunch together this spring and summer for next Christmas.  I will post a photo tutorial of the first one I make after the first of the year(so please check back).  I just love these old jars, especially the antique blue ones.   I have quite a few antique and new Mason/Ball jars scattered around my home, each doing their own unique job of decorating.
