    Love these, Alex! I am such a mason jar freak that I often forget about the condiment jars in my fridge. These pickle jars are fabulous!

    Cute jars!! They are pretty with the flowers but I they would look great in the bathroom with stuff in them. Lot’s of possibilities though!

    These are great! We go through so many pickle jars around our house. This is a really cute way to re-use them 🙂

    So strange, I had a similar idea to this the other day! We ARE crafty soul mates! And yes, pickle jars > mason jars forever 🙂

    Major points for pulling this off without a Cricut! I’m a huge fan of Swiss Cross Decor too and this is just one more reason why… love it!

    Yes! Pickle jars. Totally agree. And I love your vases. If you have a second to come share them at The Makers link party on my blog I would love it. 🙂

    Love. I have totally used them before too – so amazing without the wording/embellishments!

    Cute! Personally, I like these a lot more than mason jars (I have nothing against mason jars–they’re just not my thing).

    And I had no idea you could waterproof regular old craft paint. You’re a genius, lady.

    Ah, I love this! I have so many random jars kicking around it’s nice to see some great inspiration! For some reason I just can’t bring myself to throw away a jar – that craft/storage potential! haha.

    Great idea! Do you know someone who shops at Costco? They sell some things, like artichokes, in huge jars which would be great for storage. How to eat all those artichokes is another story!
