Creating Fun Household Items and Gifts with Your Old Mason Jars

It seems like everyone has an old mason jar or two lying around his or her home or storage unit.

5. Planters

Whether you are looking for a windowsill herb garden or small flower pots for your backyard,  a mason jar can be the perfect planter. After the jar is filled with soil and your flower is planted, you can even dress it up a bit with some twine, burlap, ribbon, or lace.
