How Pinteresting Monday - Canning Jars & Jello Molds


While my sister was in town two weekends ago, we went thrift shopping.  When I saw these aluminum molds, I remember seeing a use for them on Pinterest, but I couldn't remember what it was. I liked them anyway, and for only .10 cents each, I bought the whole dozen. I also snagged two larger ones. I just love the shape and patina on them.


Back home, I scoured my Pinterest boards to find the idea I only vaguely remembered.  Here it is:


It is from Hanna's Charming Recycling.  Hanna has a gorgeous website and coauthored "Sjarmerende Gjenbruk," which is Norwegian for Charming Reuse.  An English version is available on Amazon under the title, "Rediscovered Treasures: A New Life for Old Objects."  I am definitely adding it to my cart! Hanna has a beautiful blog you won't want to miss!

Sadly, my molds were a bit too large to use the rings, but they were just big enough to sit over the rim and look like they were screwed on.



I decided to use them in our postage stamp sized bathroom to squeeze out a little more storage.



Filled with soft white cotton balls and Q-Tips, I love the way they look.


How has Pinterest inspired you lately?



Don't forget to come back Tuesday night for What We Accomplished Wednesdays. I love to see what you've been up to!

Until next time keep craftin' and smilin'!



I've shared this post at these great parties.  Come join the fun!

  5. How inspiring! I have a couple of these molds and I've been waiting for inspiration and this is it. I've seen them used as candle holders, hanging light fixtures and pin cushions, but this is the coolest way of using them.

    Thanks for sharing!
