Mason Jars. These classic glass containers can store flowers, hold soup, organize a spice jar and even bake a pie. Here are four of our favorite uses for mason jars:

1) Store Salad. Impress dinner guests or store your lunches for the week by compiling your summer salad in mason jars. Choose your favorite ingredients and layer them with the dressing on the bottom. Then to eat, simply stick a fork in it. For mason jar salad recipes, visit Neat Pins.

2) Serve Drinks. Drinks are more refreshing if they’re served from a mason jar - We promise! Go Southern with a tall glass of sweet tea, or enjoy a tart lemonade on a hot summer afternoon. Mason jars come in many sizes, including small for strong cocktails and large for refreshing concoctions.

3) String Lights. To light up your backyard or add a whimsical touch to any room, make mason jar light strings. They’re easy and inexpensive to make. Plus, all you need are low-wattage bulbs and mason jars. Simple! For step-by-step instructions, visit Design Sponge.

4) Display Flowers. For a unique centerpiece or bedside table decoration, follow these steps: Trim flower stems and place the flowers in a jar. It’s that simple! Go for a minimalistic look with one flower or bundle a bouquet for a more colorful option. For more inspiring mason jar flower displays, visit Upcycle This: Organize & Decorate With Mason Jars.
