Do you remember our post about the vintage watering can that was turned into a shower fixture? (It’s here, if you want to check it out.)
The blog — The Cozy Old Farmhouse — that shared that repurposing idea also features these lights made from trash can lids and Mason jars.
Something like this could be a DIY project for many of us. 
What do you think of this creative reuse?

Want a simple autumn decorating idea? 
Make “pumpkins” from Mason jar lids. Run a piece of string through the openings, and tie together. (This example’s made by Kristin of Simply Klassic Home.) To reuse the jar tops for other things, simply untie the string.
For other upcycled fall decorating ideas, check out this Pinterest board here, and this Facebook album here.

DIY project du jour: Turn jars into speakers
Sarah Pease, a furniture design student at the Rhode Island School of Design, made these super-cool “AudioJars.” 
To make your own jar-speakers, you could use David Mellis’s open-source speaker information / tutorial, like Sarah did.

Adding to the growing group of jar reuses with these three finds:
1. Jar tops with holes in them enable you to carry drinks more easily (read: less likely to spill them), especially when you’re on the go. The reusable/refillable jar-glasses pictured above, via PoppyandPearlCo on Etsy, come with reusable, BPA-free straws. (Spotted on Pinterest, via TreasureAgain.) 
2. BPA-free, reusable (and recyclable) Cuppow screw-on tops also make it easier to carry beverages with you, without spilling them. 

3. This next idea — cutting off the tops of salt containers and placing them onto the tops of jars — made the blog and Pinterest rounds several months ago. Still brilliant. (via Pinterest; click through for a brief tutorial)

Another bright (repurposing) idea:
Turn old Mason jars into lights with lids containing solar-powered bulbs. (Idea and photo via treasureagain on Etsy.)

Outdoor mason jar chandelier.

Note: I’m reblogging a post that appears to have been published without linking to a specific Etsy shop or item; instead, it links only to the general Etsy.com site. As a result, we readers have nothing on which to click to learn who made the chandelier! I took the time to search on Google for jar lights and came across this item from treasureagain. I think it’s the same chandelier as the one pictured above. Please correct me if I’m wrong in giving credit to treasureagain on Etsy! —Molly of Unconsumption
