I have this weird thing for beverages in Mason jars. I think they're super cute and very shabby chic. What exactly is a Mason Jar? You ask. Well, according to Wikipedia, A Mason jar is a molded glass jar used in canning to preserve food. Here's what they look like:

Cute di ba? I also like them because they can be used for so many other things. Just like these:

Php 850 for a jar??? I went home kinda broken -hearted.
Anyway, one night my husband and I went to our favorite bar and restaurant (77 Cafe Bar & Resto) for our date night and I was so thrilled to see that my usual iced tea is now being served in jars! It wasn't a Mason jar but an old re-purposed jar. Oo nga naman noh? Bakit pa ako bibili ng overpriced jars when I can just make one myself?!
So I took an empty jam/spread/mayo jar, cleaned it, (you can also sterilize it) and Voila!
My very own beverage jar! Who needs those expensive jars, anyway?
This is exactly why I love DIY's. Re-using old jars save you a lot of money and is environment-friendly too. You can also choose the size and shape of your own beverage jars.
If you are like me, who has a thing for Mason jars, you might want to consider this DIY before splurging on insanely priced jars.
Re-use. Reduce. Recycle.
Thanks for dropping by!
