You don’t have to have a farmhouse style home to love decorating with mason jars! They give any project a warm, vintage feel, and are inexpensive as well. You can either purchase actual antique jars for around $10 each, or you can pick up pretty clear and blue brand new sets of 6-12 jars for around $10… I love the look of mason jars, and they are made of a thick, sturdy glass, so you know whatever you use them for , they will last. Check out this round up of great bloggers projects with mason jars! Our feature photo, below, is a great idea that requires very little elbow grease, by ‘Sugar and Spice‘. Place photos (b&w look very vintagey) in mason jars to display.
