I got a bunch, painted the lids, poked holes for air and made tiny little bug habitats. I used ribbon to hang each habitat from a spray painted branch in a vase so it's kind of like a Christmas Tree Branch Bug Zoo thing. If you didn't want to keep live bugs you could make mini fake habitats and make little sculpty monsters or critters to "live" in them. Or get a board, paint it all fancy, nail the lids of the jars to one side of the board and hang the board on the wall! Instant organizer shelf thingy! Maybe make one for the garage for nails and screws and nuts and whatnot? Or buttons and pins and whatnot?

You could always do something like this: http://artbeadscene.blogspot.com/2011/02/create-wall-of-beads-storage-system.html

Metal board and magnets on the bottoms of the jars, ad it could be storage for whatever you wanted... maybe a bit of fabric on the top for prettiness?

I've seen people make them into candles to give away at a baby shower or an infant's first birthday. It was a cute idea.
Any prego friends?

Mini terrariums using live moss & teensy decorative stones &/or mini figurines. 

A collection of them could look pretty cute.  Paint the lids but let the paint cure before adding moss or the fumes could kill it. 

Put a layer of crushed charcoal & tiny gravel on the bottom before adding a layer of potting soil & the moss.

I have a plan to use the jars to make a new spice rack system. I'm going to spray paint the lids red (to match my kitchen!) then attach magnets to the tops. I'm going to have my man attach a small piece of metal to the underside of one of my cabinets. Then I can fill the jars with spices and simply attach them to the metal. Keeps them out of the way, but handy!

I also plan to spray paint 25 of the jars and make an advent calender for Christmas. Decorate each differently, put little treats in each, like little candies or a gift card into one. Then each day we get a little treat!

They make great gifts to young lego-lovers if you paint them yellow and decorate them to look like lego people heads.
