Adorable Easter Mason Jar Ideas – Perfect for Easter Gifts and Decorating!
If you’re like me, you can become quite the craft supply hoarder, especially of jars and bottles. Before you think about tossing them or passing them on to someone else, consider these ideas of turning them into seasonal decor.
At the very least, all you need are the jars, some paint, fabric, and other supplies you most likely already have lying around your craft room.
Where can I find mason jars?
If you’re not the canning type or don’t find yourself doing many crafts with glass jars, then it’s totally understandable why you may not have some on hand.
Luckily, you can find mason jars or any type of glass jars just about anywhere. For starters, check out what you have in your refrigerator. Foods like banana peppers, pickles, and olives typically come in glass jars that can be used for crafting. I actually used a spaghetti sauce jar for this nautical stripe chalk painted jar craft!
The branded mason jars can always be found at Walmart, Amazon, or even your local Dollar Store. Don’t worry about trying to secure the ones with labels because bare jars will do just fine for the craft ideas highlighted below!
