As you are cleaning out your closets and cupboards, you might find that you have a lot of extra vases and jars. Here are some ideas on what to do with them if you want to keep a few on hand. Don't feel guilty about donating the rest.
1 >> Reuse mason jars for gifts. Add flowers and give them to a friend or family member for a beautiful gift. I received these from a friend for my birthday! What a beautiful surprise. You can also fill with your favorite cookies with lid to keep them fresh.
2 >> Vase as a party decoration. The vase is the perfect straw holder for all your party guests, adding a bit of color and fun for all ages.
3 >> Get practical. As you can see, I use these around my house to store items we use often. Plants, soap, pencils, markers and more. These are just a few ways you can make your vases more beautiful for display and more practical for you.
4 >> Condiments. I found this serving platter at Michaels and I plan on using it this summer for an outdoor condiment station. These are smaller jelly jars that I can use for ketchup, mustard, mayo, honey, barbeque sauce, peanut butter, jelly or anything else that needs spreading.
