I love mason jars….I just don’t know what it is about them but they are just so cute and practical. When creating a craft or gift I like to think of something inexpensive that you can make that you can put your own personal touch on, that is what makes it special! When holidays arrive it is fun to put together gifts for Teachers too, and mason jars are great for filling up with goodies. Let me show you a few fun gifts and crafts using mason jars so you can try them at home too.
