{Fab Friday Finds} 3 Unique Uses of Mason Jars

I think I speak for many women when I say, I love Mason Jars! I swear, I find new cool ways to use them every single day. They're perfect for rustic wedding decor, shabby chic home decor, storage, baking, the list goes on. Sometimes I wonder what you can't use them for! So for today's {Fab Friday Finds}, I wanted to share a few of my very favorite Mason Jar crafts...

1. Homespun Wedding Centerpieces. This ultra easy DIY centerpiece idea on Emmaline Bride is just so perfect for a homespun wedding with a whimsical touch! Simply fill Mason Jars with water, tie a decorative ribbon around the top and then place a floating candle in each (make sure they're long burning like these ones). Group a few jars together, and ta da...instant gorgeous centerpiece!

2. Mason Jar Storage Caddy. Use metal clamps ([less than $1/each on Amazon] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000DZH7OY/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=pret0 7-20&linkCode=as2&camp=217145&creative=399373&creativeASIN=B000DZH7OY)) to mount Mason Jars on wood and then onto a wall in your kitchen, bathroom, office, wherever you need an awesome little storage caddy like this one seen on About.com.

3. Spray Painted Mason Jar Planters. Give Mason Jars a different look by simply spray painting them like Larissa of Just Another Day in Paradise did! Then, grab some potting soil and get planting. I'll take painted Mason Jars over boring pots any day! What other ways are you using Mason Jars?
