A Chíc Way To Reuse Your Empty Glass Jar After That Delicious Pasta Dinner!

The other day as I was cooking a spaghetti dinner, I began to admire the shape of the jar and talked myself out of throwing it out.
I gave it a good wash, scrubbed the label off with a course cleaning brush and some Dawn detergent, and let it dry.
My oldest child suggest that I upcycle it into a makeup brush holder since I don’t really have one. I thought it was a great idea.
The next day, as my kids were doing their own crafting projects, I whipped out my glue gun, some twine and some dried flowers that I had left over from a failed attempt at soap making.
Well, it turns out that I am much better at decorating glass jars because my spaghetti jar came out really, really cute—like ”I would buy that at the store if I saw it on the shelf” cute.
I can’t wait to do more designs in the future! This jar has so many potential uses.
What Can I Use An Upcycled Glass Jar For?
While I am using mine as a makeup brush holder, you can use your jar for so many more things!
You can use upcycled glass jars as vases, centerpieces, lanterns, candle holders, cooking utensil holders, piggy banks, and much more.
So check out my tutorial below (video included at the end) and have fun!
- Hot Glue Gun
- Empty Glass Jar
Take your twine and using your hot glue gun, glue the tip of the twine to the neck of the jar. Next, start wrapping the twine around the neck about 8-10 times around. Snip it off and secure it with glue.
Do the same near the base of the jar. Once you are done wrapping the twine around, snip it off and secure it with glue.
Once you have your twine wrapped around the jar, pick out whatever dried flower(s) you want and using your hot glue gun, secure them onto the twine.
You now have a lovely upcycled glass jar that can serve many purposes and look stylish in any space of your home.
