10 Awesome Ways To Upcycle Pickle And Sauce Jars

August 23rd, 2018

Some of us have relatives that saved every old container they came across, especially glass pickle and sauce jars. That’s because they knew how valuable they were and how they could be used over and over again.

But it’s likely that there are so many more things that they had no idea could be done with those jars.

Here Are 10 Awesome Ways To Upcycle Pickle And Sauce Jars:

1) DIY Sewing Kit

Turn your jar into a sewing kit. Toss all your items inside like thread, needles, and thimbles. Glue a piece of stuffed fabric to the top and use it as a pin cushion.

2) Fancy Apothecary Jar

You don’t have to go out and buy fancy canisters for your kitchen. Just clean out an empty pasta jar and remove the label. Glue a funky knob on the top and use a sticker label. You can also paint the lid and knob a bold color so they match. You can use them as storage in the kitchen and bathroom.

6) Vacation Memory Jars

Everyone likes to buy knickknacks on vacation but no one likes the clutter they bring. Instead, make a memory jar. Fill a glass jar with a photo, sand, shells, plane tickets, receipts, small knickknacks, words, and other things to remember your special time. These will look a lot less sloppy than a bunch of unruly knickknacks on your shelf.

8) Store Pointy Hardware

It’s important to properly store your sharp hardware. Storing them in glass jars will prevent injury. You’ll also be able to see what you have. You can screw the jar tops right into your workspace shelf and screw the jobs so they hang.
