I actually started collecting them to make Xmas gifts this year… its a garland that spells out “snow” (4 lids).  I’m trying to find that mag and will upload if you r interested.

We are decorating them and using them as candleholders at the reception. Sounds kind of tacky, but actually looks really awesome.

I glued mine together and am using them as spoonrests in my house. But I still have a ton left over so any ideas would be good too! I use mason jars as glasses in my house too.

What about using them as coasters? I was thinking maybe buying some thin cork and cutting out the shape of the coaster and attaching it to the bottom to the lid. If you wanted to use both the ring and the center, you could glue the ring to the center. I may try this.

Off the top of my head how about a picture collage? Decorate them and then a picture on the inside of the lid? Maybe table numbers? hmmm I have to go think more 🙂
