Jars are easy to find in the produce section of your local grocery store or craft store. Better yet, mason jars commonly store tasty ingredients. Jars can be reused to create DIY projects. These are three crafts that are easy to make and a lot of fun to put together. Plastic jars can be used for these crafts as well.

This little snow globe is relatively easy to make, and a popular DIY jar craft. I decided to craft the little globe when seeing a round shaped jar, but this craft can certainly be made with a regular mason jar.

  • Little Statue
  • Glitter
  • Hot Glue
  • Lid
  • Round Foam (I used gold foam from party scatter)
  • Vegetable Glycerin (optional)
