Mason jars have come a long way since the days of old when they were used solely for canning the bounty of summer. These days, it’s the versatility of those adorable glass vessels that add to their appeal. We use them for everything from home decor to organizational tools to cute gift ideas. We especially love the idea of using them in a kitchen to give it a bit of a homey, rustic feel.

We found these unique ways to add a touch of country living to your kitchen:
