How do I use peanut jars for something other than pocorn?


I have multiple empty peanut jars. There must be something easy that I can make with them. The shape is unique but nothing jumps out at me. I am relatively new to DIY so simple is best for me. Thanks for any and all suggestions.

    This is a great idea for the holidays. Peanut jars repurposed into gift containers. Here is the link with the instructions.

    I would make gifts for Christmas out of them for teachers, Sunday school teachers, neighbors, etc. You could put a pom pom on top or santa hat and fill them with all the ingredients for a nice cup or two of hot chocolate including mini marshmallows. Tie a ribbon around the "neck" or waste band. They would make wonderful gifts. Or you could organize a craft room using the jars. Another idea is to use Mod Podge or glue on them, then roll in epsom salts and put a little tea light in them of various colors. You could decorate them to look like Carolers and give them away. I would use them to store my herbs I grow annually and dehydrate. They could be used to store any dehydrated food or herbs. Hope this gives you some ideas Martha.

    Empty jars and bottles can be repurposed as storage containers. I use old pill bottles to hold various small items.

      Thanks. I do use for popcorn but rather small for most other things in the kitchen. Maybe I need to broaden my scope. Thanks.

    Storage for craft supplies is a great idea. You can also dress them up by decoupaging a little craft paper or fabric on the outside.
