Wednesday Round-up: Mason Jar Lovin’

I have a big love for Mason jars (come on, who doesn’t?). I used them in my wedding, I have lots sitting around my house just waiting to be repurposed… and hopefully I’ll get around to using some of these ideas myself soon!

For today’s round-up, I couldn’t resist posting these adorable ideas.

A Fun Crafternoon

Yesterday I went over to my friend Kerrie’s house for Tea and Crafts and Crumpets (aka cookies, pastries, and other yummies). Kerrie has a fantastic blog called Sea Kettle Diaries — go check it out! She’s super creative and had a bunch of girls over today for crafts. Most people brought something to work on, but since I didn’t really have anything I was working on at home, she provided some stuff I could get creative with.

Some of us made MOD PODGE PICTURE MAGNETS! This is a great gift idea, or if you’re like me, and don’t have many magnets on your own fridge, make some for yourself! I was like a magnet making factory. I just couldn’t stop finding cute pictures I wanted to make magnets out of. đŸ™‚

Here’s all you’ll need:

  • Some magazines you can clip pictures out of (or find pictures online and print them out)
  • Mod Podge
  • Glass pebbles ($1 at the Dollar Tree for a whole bag of them!)
  • Magnets to glue onto the back of the stones

Here was the result of my afternoon. I had a lot of fun, and these are super easy! Thanks for the great idea, Kerrie! She also told me you can get some Altoid tins, mod podge-decorate those, and put a few magnets inside the tin to give as gifts.
