I use them in my medicine cabinet to hold things like cotton balls, q-tips, nail clippers, & small things like chap sticks & eye drops. That way they are all pretty accessible without taking up a big spot (like having the entire q-tip box in there)

You can make little change jars too  Smiley

I use them for storage in my craft room---great for buttons, jewelry supplies, etc.

I recently babysat for my nephew. After a day or so of that I had 3 empty jars of baby food things. I cleaned off all of the sticky stuff (tea tree oil is great) and filled the clean and dry jar with those small origami stars for a friend. I covered the lid in polymer clay, baked it, put it back together and tied ribbon around the neck of the jar. It was very different and pretty.

I should find pictures somewhere and put them on here.

With all the worry about plastic leeching toxic chemicals, I have switched my tupperware from plastic to glass. When I have jars with lids, I try to use those to store food.

Also, I found this craft on Martha:

I used enamel paint and etching cream to give the jars a really pretty beach glass look.

Maybe make snowglobes with them? I did that once with a baby food jar but I don't think it lasted too long. Tongue

My grandfather used to nail the lids of jars to the bottom of a shelf, then you could just twist the jar on and off it.  He used it to store nails and screws and things, but you could use it for anything, like buttons!
