Most of the time when I think of mason jar crafts, I think about recycled materials, sea glass, sea shells, tissue paper and all things craft. Never once did it cross my mind that I can craft a mason jar with yarn. Yarn mason jar crafts are actually pretty neat because there are a few different ways you can decorate and use the jar. The first thing you really need to do is get a collection of jars so you have a great pile to start with. Once you have that you can take a look at your yarn stash to see what kind of leftovers you have. And don’t worry, if you don’t have any leftovers (which who are you kidding, you probably do), then you can go out and buy more yarn (because you’ll probably end up doing that anyway). Once you have your beautiful yarn colors to work with you can choose from any one of these neat mason jar crochet patterns.
