Mason Jars, DIY and Color Significance

Mason Jars – invented in Philadelphia by a tinsmith John Landis Mason, while designs were patented in 1858. The world is currently in a frenzy about the same, but it’s not the first time that mason jars became so popular. These little glass wonders became popular in the early 19th century as glass articles could be bleached and allowed canners to see what’s inside.

Mason jars are repurposed into everything from salad containers to vases to toothbrush holders and occasionally to preserve food as well.
