15 Recipes & Crafts you can make with Jars: Desserts, Drinks, Decor & MORE!

Over the last few years, I’ve written a number of easy and inexpensive recipes and craft ideas using jars. I wanted to share a nice round-up of these with you for handy reference. Many of these make nice gifts – whether it’s a summer birthday or a holiday.

Note that I do use mason jars for the bulk of these posts, but you could just as well re-purpose other jars for most of these ideas (with the exception of the canning recipes, of course).
