10 Upcycled Jam Jars Ideas. (Updated post. First published here 10th April 2016).
Hello friends. Do you like to recycle, upcycle and reuse old glass jars?
I love to upcycle glass jars and Hartley’s Jam has kindly let me share some of their recycled jar ideas today, alongside some of my own ideas.
How cool can you make an old jam jar look with add flowers and planting bulbs into them?
Here Are 10 Upcycled Jam Jars Ideas:
What a beautiful idea?
Using old Hartley jam bottles: Simply wash out old jars and soak the jar in warm water to remove the outer label. Then let your imagination run wild.
10 Upcycled Jam Jars Ideas:
1.) Adding Cut Flowers And Fruit Into Your Jars:
Try slicing citrus fruit up and placed in the bottom of your old washed out jars, add some water to display, then add your favourite sweet little flowers.
How pretty is this idea?
You can mix and match the colours of the fruit to go with your theme or flowers.
2.) Growing Flowers, Bulbs Or Herbs:
Why not grow your own bulbs, flowers and herbs in them.
Wah out the jars well, remove labels, fill with soil and them add seeds to your favourite flowers bulbs or herbs.
3.) Growing Flowers:
How about growing some flowers from scratch?
Or poping some pre-started to grow flowers inside.
How sweet do these flowers look?
4.) Bits And Bob Holders:
How about cleaning some old jars out to fill bathroom bits and bobs into them?
Cotton wool, cotton bud, cotton balls in the bathroom.
Or maybe sweets, nuts, fruit or small biscuits?
Fun idea to keep all pencils, crayons, rubbers, paperclips etc in.
Use as a candle or tea light holder. Or maybe floating candles?
6.) Homemade Jams, Marmalades And Chutneys:
Old jam jars are perfect for making homemade jam, marmalade and chutney in.
7.) Keeping Sewing Bits Together:
I can never find my sewing needle and cotton!
perfect for storing buttons, cotton, pins, needles and cotton inside for sewing.
8.) Creating Something Beautiful:
Try painting them, creating pretty patterns on them like butterflies?
Glue pretty lace and ribbons on them.
Sparkles and glitter always look great.
9.) Popping Battery Little Lights Into Them:
Using them as mini lights. These look beautiful and perfect for dark evenings.
Why not pop your cutlery inside them?
One set for each table setting?
Remember these ideas for National Gardening Week (next week 11th-17th April).
