Mother's Day Idea: Repurpose a Glass Jar.

Homemade gifts can be really special and meaningful to both the creator and the recipient.
Mason jars, left over pasta sauce jars, baby food jars, all are excellent blank canvases for gift giving.
The internet is full of ideas. I've just posted links to a few here.

I know for me personally, I like a gift that has both meaning and function. So a craft that performs a duty is ideal. Do you have a glass jar craft you'd like to share? Let us know in the comments section below!
