Reuse Your Pasta Sauce Jars: 4 Ideas

Do you use jarred pasta sauce? End up with glass jars that seem they should be able to do something more? Here are a few ideas for giving them a second wind (and making your house look kinda neat, too!):

  • Use them for bulk storage.

  • Use spray-on etching to frost the glass and use them as candlholders, indoors or out.

  • Give them a pattern with a paint pen like Abby at Aesthetic Outburst.

  • Crochet them some cozies and use them for pretty storage at the bedside, desktop, or table. You can even give them as gifts! See a tutorial at Dottie Angel.
