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.
3) Lid Coasters
Your jar lids can make great coasters. Just cut out a round piece of cork sheet to fit inside the lid. Glue it to the inside of your lid. You can also stamp or paint something cool on the lid. You can also make photo resin coasters using this tutorial.
4) Fancy Candles
Old pickle jars are great for making those cool see-through candles. You just need a clean jar, wax, wick, and some press flowers or herbs. You can find a full tutorial here.
5) Flower Vases
Old jars can always be used as a vase. Just decorate your vase by pouring paint on the inside or wrapping it in twine. You can get different decorating ideas here.
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.
7) Succulent Terrarium
Give your old glass jar new life by placing plant life in it. Create an adorable little terrarium in your empty plastic or pickle jars. Just pop in some succulents and other plants that don’t require soil.
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.
9) Hanging Lanterns
Need a little light? You can run a wire or a piece of a hanger around the rim of your jar and hang it with some extra wire. Place a votive inside and hang wherever you need light. Learn how to make them here.
