My kids and I love making crafts from “throw-away” glass bottles and glass jars. It’s not just to banish “I’m bored” from the kids or to inspire my creativity (as an adult). The point here is to get the satisfaction when turning old things into new useful ones. It is such a rewarding journey. Normally, these crafts are functional things for your home and garden. Some of them are even pretty enough to serve as an home décor and gift.
And, here are 20 inspiring ways to reuse glass bottle and jars I would like to share today. These DIY glass projects will surely spice up your boring time, especially at weekend. Some are quite easy and fun to make, so you can do them with your kids. Just be careful not to break the glass. I’m making mason jar lights this weekend and hang them at the garden. They will be striking here at night time. Let’s give these a look, and have fun with your favorite crafts!
