Ever since I started canning again, I began to save all my glass jars from pasta sauce and the like. Unfortunately, you can't safely use those jars for canning, but I've been finding many other ways to make good use of them!
I began storing my grains and dry beans in the glass jars in my cupboard. It makes things look far more organized, plus it helps save on space since we don't really have a pantry at our apartment (oh the joys of LA apartments...). Then I figured, why not use them for decoration? So I threw a tea light in each of the jars and put them out on our back porch table.
What to do next? Maybe pour wax in the jars and make giant candles?!
