Ways to Upgrade Your Canning Jars

We can a lot around here, which means we often have a lot of mason jars hanging around. They can do double duty when you turn them into decor, kitchen tools, travel mugs, and more. Here are our favorite ways to upgrade the canning jar:

 We can often be found rocking our Cuppows at monthly swaps. A simple, BPA-free lid goes under a canning ring and turns any jar into a travel mug. Made right here in Somerville, Cuppows come in wide or regular mouth size. Add a Holdster, a leather cuff and handle, to your jar, and you can travel anywhere.

For the cocktail lover, the Mason Shaker is the perfect gift (Father's Day is in a week!). With a quart jar being larger than a traditional shaker, you can mix drinks for four or five at once instead of one or two.

"Put it in a mason jar" is definitely the new "put a bird on it." So it's natural that this french press from a 24-ounce jar is made in Portland. The Portland Press is made from USA-sourced materials and comes with a lifetime warranty. 

Two new books are out that are filled from cover to cover with mason jar crafts. DIY Mason Jars is currently available, while Mason Jar Crafts releases in July. 

While you're adding crafty jars to your decor, why not turn one into a lamp? Yes, there's a kit that turns a mason jar into a lamp. What would you fill your jar lamp base with? Marbles? Plastic figurines? Glitter?

Help us buy more mason jars and keep swapping free by buying through one of the affiliate links in this post.
