I LOVE MASON JARS! Sorry, was I yelling?
I have mason jars all over my house. They are so useful and convenient.
Plus, I just love the rustic vibe they provide.
Here are just a few things we use mason jars for on the homestead:
We use these green mason jars for everyday drinking. We have the pint and quart size in the cupboard for our dishes. You can also get purple ones too. I heard that Ball was discontinuing these soon, so don’t miss out.
I drink my protein shakes each morning out of a mason jar with this lid and straw. I love it because I can take it on the go!
2. Food Storage
If you look in my fridge (scary!) you will see several different sized mason jars with leftovers in them. So handy, especially if you get the white lids for easy storage.
Of course, we can’t talk about mason jars without talking about canning! I love canning the harvest. It is so rewarding to see all of the jars lined up on the shelf, ready for winter.
My husband made this chandelier from mason jars. He got the tutorial here and used a piece of wood for the base.
We also used these mason jars to make three pendant lights over the kitchen island. We got the instructions here.
5. Laundry Soap
I use mason jars to store my homemade laundry soap in the laundry room. Here is the recipe I use!
I love to use mason jars for teacher gifts. This one has twizzlers in it and says “You’re the Sweetest!” I got the tutorial here.
This year I used mason jars with lights inside this old Coke crate for my Christmas centerpiece.

9. Chicken waterer
I use mason jars for my chicken waterers when I have baby chicks in the house. You can buy the base here.
I love to have fresh flowers in the house and a mason jar (big or small) makes a great flower vase.
11. Cupcake Liner Storage
This is a Pinterest find that I thought was ingenious! Why didn’t I think of that first!
12. Wedding Decor
A friend of ours had these jars at her wedding. We saved them as a keepsake.
Here is a way to keep the matches safe and dry. Just cut out the striking strip and put it on the top of the jar. Yes!13 mason jar projects that will help you all over the house. I can't get enough mason jars!Click To Tweet
