You’ll need a drill bit or cutting tool to do this, and you’ll need to make sure to properly measure the pump rim before cutting the opening to make sure it fits. You can use epoxy or a similar material to hold it in place from the inside of the lid.
2. Piggy Bank
Make a piggy bank out of a mason jar by cutting a slot in the top. You can use a simple box cutter if the jar’s top isn’t too thick, though you may need a heavier cutting tool for thick jars.
3. Cookie Jar
Create your own cookie jar by filling the inside with the ingredients to make cookies. Take the time decorate or label the jar, and make sure you put the date when you packed the jar on the label since cookie dough doesn’t last more than a few days.
Make a vase out of a mason jar by filling the bottom with something like decorative rocks or marbles and inserting fresh flowers. You can even tie groups of mason jars together with raffia or twine to make a larger vase to hold bigger arrangements.
5. Decorative Candle Holder
Paint the outside of a mason jar and fill it with sand. Drop a tea light or other small candle in the jar and you’ve got a decorative candle holder that will be a unique color when the candle inside is lit.
6. Food Gifting
Fill a mason jar with unique homemade food items for a party. For example, you could make salsa, guacamole or another food item. Mason jars are also great for gift for chefs and food lovers like homemade stocks and broths.
Add manicure items to a mason jar and put a bow around the jar. It will make a unique manicure set, and one that won’t easily get lost in the medicine cabinet.
8. Candy Jar
Paint the outside of the mason jar with an appropriate color based on the recipients favorite candy and label it accordingly. Fill the jar with the candy before giving it to them. (Think candy canes, or candy corn, for instance....)
9. Glamour Glitter Jar
