There’s something about those little, glass jars that sparks the crafting spirit in us all. The artsy world is at your fingertips when you hold a mason jar in your palm and begin to imagine what it can become. (Or perhaps you stare at those adorable containers and wonder how in the world people come up with such brilliant ideas.) No matter which camp you’re in, you’ll adore this collection of other people’s clever visions because it’s your chance to bring them to life and make them your own. Put a smile on someone’s face, transform ordinary into rustic extraordinary, and turn chaos into chic calm all with one recycled canister. WAIT! Before you throw away the lid to craft with the glorious bottom portion, set it aside because there are some equally awesome ideas for crafting with the tops. Nothing goes to waste with AllFreeKidsCrafts.
