My kids absolutely love the really big dill pickles. I buy them in the largest jars I can find.
I hate to just throw them in the recycle bin so I began to ask, “What can I do with these LARGE pickle jars?”
Then it dawned on me…decorations!
Now I not only have an Easter centerpiece this year that is GREEN and the kids helped make, but it helps showcase the eggs they decorated! All I used was old plastic eggs I had stored in the basement and some scrap ribbon.
I simply LOVE it for a Halloween decoration! I liked the large apothecary jars but didn’t want to lay down the cash for one. They’re $20 and up! No thank you. So I took a large pickle jar, turned it upside down and put a skeleton in it. Granted I had to dislocate his legs for all of him to fit but I like it even better this way! I turned him upside right and viola! Spooky right?
I really love glass hurricanes but they can be pretty pricey. Here I used a large pickle jar as a candle holder for Christmas. You could fill it with ornaments, balls, pine cones – you name it. Your imagination can go bananas thinking of all the different things you could do! Now I can use these gigantic jars for something fun and pretty, for ANY occasion!
Then I thought…utensils! Kitchen utensils fit perfectly in these large jars.
So the next time you find yourself ‘in a pickle’ think outside the jar and use it for something! 😉
