Mason jars have been around forever. Ok, maybe not forever, just since 1858. But still, a long time.
It’s interesting how a product that was first produced over 150 years ago, is now one of the hottest trends in do-it-yourself gift giving. Mason jars are now used for drinking glasses at parties, centerpieces for weddings, and of course, personal gifts.
In fact, in 2015 enough Mason jars were sold that if you laid them end-to-end, they would encircle the entire globe.
Just so you know, your handmade gift jars are right on trend.
