Mason jar lanterns turned into canning jars
Glass Mason jars, with their signature Ball branding, have become ubiquitous among DIYers in the past decade or so. Some people even eat and drink out of them! Our favorite repurposed mason jar project is to string them up, pop votive candles inside, and hang them on the patio as outdoor lanterns. But here’s an ingenious trick we recently got wind of (wink!): When you submerge Mason jars in boiling water, their lids form an airtight seal, making them perfect for long-term storing and preserving of foods like fruits, tomatoes and jam. Mind blown!
