Any garden art ideas for canning jars? I have about 500 that hubby told me I have to get rid of since I no longer do any canning. I discovered 2002 must have been a really good gardening year based on the number of quarts of pickles I disposed of last night!

Garden tea lights. Wrap wire around the top and enough to hang them with. Add a small amount of sand - colored or otherwise - then put in tea lights. You can always get the little battery operated tea lights if you didn't want a real flame. :)

Try this site. I am doing some of these with the older jars I have. Wish you were closer so I don't have to go buy new jars this year for canning.

I'm going to do this in my upstairs hallway!! I can't have shelves because the cats jump from the railing to the shelf and flip them down...they won't be able to jump on these.
Thanks for the link...found these after digging deeper!

I saw those too and want to put them under an overhang on my shed out back by the greenhouse this summer. I might try to drill a hole in them for drainage then I can put some on the side of the porch that is out in the open. I love these kinds of things, re-purposing.

Those blue jars are really cool! Just not sure what I'd do with them once I made them blue.

A few years ago I painted sauce jars and mason jars. I put peppermint candies in them as gifts.

Thats a cute one, Dem!

You can also Google in images for ideas.
On Pinterest they are using jars to keep salads and lettuce fresher but I've come across ideas there occasionally!

And, Don, you paint very lovely rocks as well. Have you posted any pictures in the painted rock threads? I can't keep up with all the threads of late. Glare

Thanks, Becky. I'm meeting myself going and coming. Isn't that cat wonderful? They all are. And great basket of strawberries. Oops, guess I should have posted this comment on the other thread. Oh well. Green Grin!

I've also got a link saved on my computer for hanging canning jars with votives. As soon as I can get into the office I'll post it. A lot of people are using them for wedding reception decorations.

Aren't they pretty? Big Grin I think I even saw a site where you could "tint" the Epsom salts but I can't find it. Maybe someone can try it and let us know? Confused
