If you love mason jars, you must love that fact that you can buy them at Dollar Tree for just a buck each.ย With some stores even carrying various sizes, you might find yourself in a tizzy when you think of all ofย the things you can do with them! But just in case you need some inspiration, take a look below at 7ย creative uses for Dollar Tree mason jars. You will find that not only are they cheap, they are practicalย too!

Creative Mason Jar Ideas
1. Craft a camping jar.ย Store matches, lavender oil to keep bugs away, and lint scraps or cardboard scraps to use as fireย kindling. Your mason jar will keep your items safe and dry until you need to use them! You can alsoย consider adding your keys or other valuables you donโ€™t want ruined.

2. Hold cotton balls/cotton swabs.ย Keep these soft and delicate bathroom essentials dry when you store them in a mason jar. You will alsoย find they look quite nice when displayed on a bathroom shelf.

3. Make a sugar shaker.ย Use a screwdriver and hammer to poke holes in the lid of your jar. Add sugar to the jar, replace the lid,ย and you now have a sugar shaker perfect for your baking needs. You can also use it to shake flour,ย cornstarch, etc.

4. Mix up beverages.ย Fill the jar with water, add your powdered drink mix, replace the lid and shake. You can easily mix drinksย (even alcoholic ones!) this way without having to worry about spilling a drop.

5. Keep pet treats safe.ย Is your dog able to sniff out his pet treats? Keep them in a mason jar and the tight lid should mask theย scent. These also add a little visual appeal when displaying your jar in a kitchen, as you can add yourย dogโ€™s name to a chalkboard label to the front!

6. Make a first aid kit.ย Fill your mason jar with first aid essentials and keep it in your car, boat, or RV. The jar itself can also beย useful for holding water or even a candle should the need arise in an emergency. It will keep theย contents dry and clean, which is certainly what you want.

7. Use one as a scoop.ย Keep a mason jar in your petโ€™s food so you can easily scoop it out. After a few weeks you can easily tossย it in the dishwasher, get it nice and clean, and put it back to use again!

8. Declutter your bathroom counter! I use mason jars to store my hair ties AND keep my makeup brushes in order. It’s a simple thing to do! I use a cake stand as a tray to elevate the jars and keep my counters tidy.
