Something Old/Something New

{Via}
Colored mason jars have certainly been making the blog rounds lately, and I know that whenever I had vintage ones in stock, they sold in a flash. Such a perfect shade of turquoise, the vintage jars are also really useful- serving as a flower vase, a kitchen canister, or even office supply storage- and can usually be found at estate sales or on Etsy for less than $10 a jar.

However, if you're looking to decorate your home with them, or use them at an event, and you need more than just a few, the vintage ones can get expensive. That's where our something new comes in- did you know that you can make your own colored mason jars?

Freutcake, a fellow Pasadena based blog, recently featured a how-to for your very own colored jars- in any shade you can dream up! Mix some of these DIY jars in with some vintage jars to stretch your budget, and your color palette, further.
