Making Memories with a Mason Jar!
There are so many creative ways in which to upcycle a mason jar, you can just let your imagination run wild... from snow globes to fancy candles, fairy light features to cleaning soap dispensers! This idea, in particular, is one of our favourites and will make a thoughtful, low-cost gift for family and friends. This is such a beautiful way to showcase a favourite photo vintage style! This would make a lovely anniversary gift for your parents.
Simply take a special photo you wish to use. Pour oil into the jar first... don't worry the oil will not ruin the photo. You can use olive oil or vegetable oil which will suspend the picture inside the jar without penetrating it, causing it to look aged and slightly transparent.
The oil does the job of creating a lovely vintage look of old yellowed pictures from the past. You can also place another photo to the back so you have an all-round picture. Flowers also can be added for that extra vintage touch.
Remember to tighten the lid up fast! Step back and admire your beautiful keepsake :)
