Remember all those mason jars your grandparents had left over after eating the canned goods in the garden? They make great iced tea glasses but they also have another use, with just a bit of ingenuity and some low-cost on-line purchases. First up is the Mason Jar Pump Kit. You can use these pumps for soap, hand sanitizer or other liquid, and they look way more interesting than the plastic squeeze bottle the liquid comes in. Cost $18.00
Next up is the Mason Jar Flower Frog from Colonial Tin Works. This lid allows you to easily place fresh flowers in your decorative mason jars. Perfect for a window sill, back porch, or an upcoming outdoor party.
This mason jar light lid is probably the coolest item of the lot. It captures solar light during the day, and lights up your jar at night. Leave it in a window to capture the sun, then place it on a table or kitchen counter at night instead of a night light. At only $4.68 it is a great deal and very “green”.
And finally, to hang that nifty solar powered mason jar light outdoors on the patio, you need this Mason Jar Hanging Caddy at only $9.95.
