Two months ago, I won a dozen mason jars in a raffle at my son’s school. It was a coveted prize that was very popular among mothers like me. However, I have never really fancied mason jars so I just stashed them away in our stock room. I thought they were bulky and heavy. The absence of a handle – at least from the jars that I won – made it less appealing for me.

Who knew a mason jar can look this sleek, classy, and sophisticated?

One day, I stumbled upon them while I was cleaning. Seeing how they’ve been gathering dust, I decided that I better put them to good use. So I fired up my computer and searched for stuff to do with mason jars.

Fortunately, I found a DIY project that’ll give me a leather sleeve and handle for the jars. I think it’s perfect for what I need and the product made my mason jars look classy.  If you like mason jars, you’ll surely love these leather sleeve and handles.
