Mason Jar Solar Lights Tutorial
Now here’s a gift I’d love to receive! We have zero outdoor lighting on our back porch and in our yard. The house had a sunroom added onto the back and the only electricity outside the house is two outlets in that room. Nothing outside of it.
Our backyard is DARK at night. We’re planning to build a deck for outdoor entertaining and these little lights would be perfect for on the tables!

Epsom Salt Luminaries
These luminaries are sparkly and almost snowy looking. They’d be perfect table toppers for the holiday season, but I think they’d also be pretty in the bathroom!
You can make these whatever color you want by adding some food coloring to the Epsom salts!

Mason Jar Wall Planter
If your gift recipient loves plants and has a big window… I don’t. But if I did and my husband built me something like this? I’d be one happy girl!! I think it is absolutely beautiful!
You could gift these already planted and ready to water, with seeds for the recipient to plant themselves, or with plants already growing!
Can you imagine vining flowers like Petunias falling down over the jars?

Mason Jar Snow Globes and Terrariums
Use tiny figurines and precious objects to create these one-of-a-kind terrariums and snow globes. They’ll make great gifts any time of the year!
I love how this tutorial features different sized jars, some mason jars, some re-purposed jars from things like gravy or salsa.
Pant and decorate the lid.
Tie a bow around the top and add a tag.
