Other than wood pallets, I think mason jars are a crafter’s best friend. Well, maybe mason jars are the most used item for crafts, but if not they are certainly a staple item to use. But at some point you have to consider making a little money with your crafting talent and starting with an inexpensive item such as a mason jar leaves a lot of room for profit as well as imagination. You can literally use a mason jar for anything as well as decorate it however you like. You could paint it, cover it with fabric or even add personalized vinyl decals to it. If you wanted to add decals, you’d be best using a cricut to make the decals so that they’re perfect every time. Some crafters get sucked into the maker vs explore air 2 debate but both cricuts are good at what they’re designed to do. Here are 11 craft ideas to use with mason jars and I chose these because I thought they could be easily sold at craft fairs and flea markets. What do you think?
