Looking for creative mason jar decoration ideas?
Between marinara and jam, I have stockpiled so many empty mason jars that I could start my own canning business.
I usually just recycle them but decided to save a few instead.
Well, it really didn’t take that long but I manage to collect quite a few and do several decor projects.
