Crafty Ideas: The Amazin' Mason Jar

 Oh, I have waxed poetic in the past about the practicality of the mason jar, the versatility of the mason jar, and even the whimsy of the mason jar.
A resurrected relic from my grandmother's generation once used only for the most practical of purposes: preserving food. Today, the mason jar has come off the dusty shelf in the cellar to take it's place among the fine china and crystal on wedding reception tables across America. 

We use them as vases, drinking glasses, and candle holders. 
We paint them, tint them, fill them, glue them, light them, display them.
 Such a charming, all-American, symbol of simpler times.

Here are some, well, a bunch of my favorite uses and crafty ideas for the amazin' mason jar.
