I love mason jars, I do. I'm always looking for things to do with them. I found some great ideas on Pinterest. I took a plain mason jar and used my hot glue gun to create a heart on it. Once it dried I used some crafters paint and painted it red. It took a few coasts to cover completely. I then took the ring and tied some twine around it and screwed it in place. Added some flowers and I have a nice vase. It's really cute. It only took a few minutes.
