I have lots of glass baby food jars, and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for them?

If you're good with tools, you could make a shelf to put little things in.  Attach the lids to the bottom of the shelf and you can screw and unscrew the jars from the lids.

I also saw a really neat thing where you stack up the jars like a pyramid with the bottoms showing.  then you put colorful things in them to look like a decorated Christmas tree.

Or you could put votive candles in them.  They close up when not in use.

Here's a link to a site that has a lot of ideas for recycling jars.

not so crafty but i love small jars for keeping herbs/spices/tea, especially since i tend to buy them in bulk.

I used to remove all the label and glue. Wash them and then spray paint the outside with flat black paint (cheap stuff) - I don't like spray paint but I didn't use much. Then I used waterbased acrylics and painted them to look like chalkboards. I then tied raffia around the rim and filled them with chalk or crayons and sold them for a couple dollars a piece at a local bazaar. I sold out because kids were buying them for teacher gifts and they could afford them!
