10 Amazing Upcycled Glass Jar Projects

Mason jars are great for these types of projects, but I really like to reuse glass food jars- they’re a great resource for upcycling crafts.  The only downside in using the food jars is the pesky stickers and labels can be such a challenge to remove.  One of the quickest ways I’ve found to remove the sticky mess these labels leave behind is Goo Gone! Goo Gone is formulated to safely remove almost any sticky, gummy or gooey mess and restore surfaces to their original condition.


Spray Goo Gone on the jar, give it a scrub and violà, like new!  No sticky residue to be found.


My jar is ready for crafting!  (I’m planning to make a DIY Faux Succulent display- keep your eye out for the finished project!)
