All kinds of jars!


Clark's now declared that he will no longer wash out any baby food jars when he helps me wash the dishes (which he does a lot, he's awesome like that!). LOL I guess its cause he doesn't know why I am keeping all of them. So, this post is to let Clark know all of the fun ideas I have to recycle those baby food jars and to remind me to actually do them this time. I say, "this time," because I used to have a ton that my sis-in-law gave me a few years back and had to throw them away because I was organizing and hadn't used them.

Pics of the baby food jar ideas I've found across the WWW.


Other ideas I found or came up with which would be super cool.

  • Plant Pot for herbs - Use the peet pellets in the jars.

  • Fake Plant Pot - Use clay and silk flowers to make a little flower pot.

  • Embellishment Organizers - one for each color. I use similar storage now for each color of eyelets.

  • Envelope and Stamp Licker - Take a baby food jar. Cover with wallpaper to match office or work area. Glue a peice of sponge inside of lid, Fill with water. Cover lid with material to match and go around the edges with ribbon. Works great. Makes a great kids gift to give to working parents or Grandparents.

  • Seed storage - Good way to save seeds from the foods in your garden. Add a label (with a picture of the food)

  • Hot Chocolate - Put a one cup serving of the hot cocoa mix into the jar. Fill to the top with the miniature marshmallows. Put the cover on the jar tightly and cover the lid with ribbon and paint the lid too. Use saying" to warm yourself on a cold afternoon, just pour this jar into a cup of hot water, plop the kiss into the cup and enjoy."

  • Dad Sayings Jar - Add a few mini wrapped chocolates in the jar with cut apart Dad saying strips. Laminate label to jar and decorate lid.

  • Good Deed Advent Jar - Cut 31 small pieces of paper, approximately 2 inches by 3 inches. On each piece of paper, write down a good deed. Fold up these pieces of paper and place them in the jar. Do them for the month or before Christmas.

  • Get lids that fit here.

  • and many more ideas.

Well, now I have tons of ideas written down so I don't forget. Maybe Clark will be okay with me keeping them now. LOL probably not, he'll probably think that's creating more work for myself and throw the whole collection away. ;)

I'm thankful to Heavenly Father for:

  • Brownies & homemade Soup from super thoughtful neighbors.

  • "In-tune" Home Teachers!

  • Humidifiers - who would have thought we'd want the humidity. Where's FL when we need to be there. LOL

  • Text messaging to still communicate with peeps while Finn sleeps.

  • Blankets to keep us warm and cozy.
