If you eat a lot of pasta, like I do, you always have lots of glass jars in your recycle bin or trash can from all the red sauce. I like to keep my glass containers out of the landfill by reusing.
Here are my top 5 ways to reuse glass jars:
1- Vase: Glass jars make great vases and you can decorate them to match any decor.
2- Paint Container: Just fill with a little paint and away you go. Glass is great for this because it last longer than plastic, and it doesn’t stain.
3- Piggy Bank: Jars make great banks. Simply cut a slot in the lid to put change in, and before you know it, it will be full and time to go to the bank to cash in. You can also decorate your new penny saver to match any decor.
4- Planter: Put pebbles in the bottom of a small jar, then fill with potting soil and a small plant.
5- Candleholder: This is a great project for any size glass jar. Use glass paint to create a stained glass look, then place a soy candle at the bottom for a great glow.
