We love taking the time to craft and create things. Being able to sell the things we make can also be extremely gratifying. Mason jar crafts and projects continue to be extremely popular. Whether it’s for a craft sale, swap meet, charity auction, or your small business, we’ve collected over two dozen mason jar crafts to sell.
With a variety of different sizes and shapes mason jars or similar glass canning jars are very trendy and popular in crafting. Most likely because they are so easy to come by – many of us have these left over from items we eat. So rather than putting them into the recycling bin they make wonderful canvases to express creativity.
Although we love to make and gift them, such as these diy bath salts, you can also make these mason jar crafts to sell. Read on below for tons of inspiring ideas.
