No garden? We offer ourselves a DIY indoor vegetable patch by recycling a series of glass jars. Filled with potting soil, lined up in front of the kitchen window and decorated with string with a beautiful paper label indicating the variety grown, they are as chic as they are practical: basil, parsley, thyme or oregano are always on hand to flavor the recipes .

What if we made a DIY decoration for Christmas? A homemade snow globe, more precisely, to offer or place near the tree.

We close, we return, it's done… and it also works with any subject, even with glitter instead of snow!

To create magical illuminations outside, we recover a series of identical glass jars such as jam jars.

The DIY is a little more pointed but the result is also worth the effort: with a old jar and some DIY ideas, we can make a feeder for small birds. The thing ? Cut the top of the cover to weld or glue a larger part. Closed and pierced with holes if the feeder must accommodate sugar water for hummingbirds, open and wider for seeds!

Beyond the snow globe, an old recycled jar can be used to create a real Christmas decor. And with several jars aligned on the edge of the chimney, the effect is stunning!

They are grouped in pairs or three at different heights or they are aligned over a counter.

It only remains to pierce the corners to tie the rope and fix everything on a hook on the ceiling.

Rather than keeping ugly commercial plastic bags and tins, why not store cotton swabs, cotton swabs or washable cleansing pads in recovery jars ?

We shake, it's ready and it's fresh!
