10 great ways to up-cycle your empty Laughing Bird jars and bottles

1 – Safe storage for pins and needles

Cut out a round of foam to fit the inside of the jar lid,  cover with pretty fabric and glue on. Use this to stick your range of needles and store all your pins in the jar below.

Design some lovely labels to stick on jars to neatly store of all your favourite herbs and spices.

3 – lanterns

Wrap wire securely around the necks of jars making a loop for a handle. Pop in a night light to make a lantern. Decorate the jar with glass paint to make extra special.
