Mason Jars

I’ll freely admit it – I’m a sucker for mason jars.

You can use them for so many fun and unique purposes (and jars, turned blue with age are my favorites!).

Mason Jar Piggy bank

This piggy bank is cute and a project simple enough to do with your child. You have the opportunity to teach your young one a craft, but also some “dollars and sense” about money.

The holiday section, in particular, tickled my fancy. Love, love, love these jars with cranberries and vintage art. So festive!

The book, available through Ulysses Press retails for $14.95 and can also be found on Amazon.
