Ways with Mason Jars
Upcycled Jars for Great Home Decor
The Mason Jar was invented and patented in 1858 by Philadelphia tinsmith John Landis Mason.
They are made of molded glass and commonly used to preserve food. Such a common item in the past, they are now sought by collectors, and are bought and sold through antique stores or auction sites.
Nowadays these glass jars make great decorations around the home. Their timeless and versatile nature make them perfect for any room or setting. Not only are they great for your own home but would be perfect for gifts.
We love these Etsy sellers who have taken some glass jars and transformed them, hope you love them too!
