The Mason Jar is a famous brand of storage jar, made of soda-lime glass. It’s most often used in canning and preserving food. It was first invented and patented in 1858 by John Landis Mason.

Mason jars have that unique and pleasing “old school” look to them – and as a result they have come to be used in different ways other than canning and preserving. Many people even collect antique jars to decorate their homes with! These jars can also be used to store different things and if you’re the type of person who loves whimsical designs, then this post by our friends at EcoSalon will give you so many tips and inspiring ideas.

In addition to the 20 that were mentioned in the post (link at the end of our commentary), we are styling you out with five bonus ideas:

1. Storage For Your Dry Ingredients – If you want your pantry to look more organized, try storing dried foods in mason jars! Keep your cereals, granola, oatmeal, rice and flour in them and you will be able to see at a glance what you’ve got.

2. Different Sized Jars To Decorate Your Coffee Corner – Keep your coffee, creamer, sugar (or Stevia packets) in different sized containers to make this corner look more classy and homey.

3. Use Them as A Container For Your Presents – If you want to surprise someone who has a sweet tooth, why not fill in a jar with his/her favorite sweets. For something healthier, you could improvise and mix up a selection of nuts and / or dried fruit instead. Doing something like this just adds a little personal touch to a gift and gives them something they can re-use. There is also the opportunity to get crafty and add some decorative touches: You could get a small card, write a short message and then either tie it around the neck or punch a small hole in the edge of the lid (outside the point where it seals). Insert a piece of twine, ribbon or cotton in the hole and then tie the twine around the opening (assuming that it has a top to cover the jar).

4. Cowboy Cookie Mix In A Jar – This is a great idea to give to somebody who loves to bake. Get a 1 quart jar and fill it in with the ingredients that are listed at’s Cowboy Cookie Recipe. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt before putting it in the jar. This will be your first layer. Make sure that it’s firmly packed before adding the next layer. Decorate the jar and write a handwritten recipe on how to prepare them! 🙂

Here are the steps to layer the jar:

a. Flour
b. Packed Brown Sugar
c. Rolled Oats
d. White Sugar
e. Chopped Pecans
f. Semisweet Chocolate Chips

Serving Bloody Marys! You have probably seen Mason Jars used as vessels for tea which can then be taken on the road. It’s a popular thing in California and I’m sure in other places too. However we found the image at the top of this page and it stole the show. Don’t you agree? It’s making me little crazy just looking at these. I’ll take mine with a dash of cayenne… 😉

Ok, that’s enough from us. Here’s the link to the original awesome list:
