1-Gallon Commemorative Mason Jar Is a Blast From the PastCreate a unique display with this Ball 1-gallon commemorative Mason jar from Kmart. The Ball brothers began making their glass home-canning jars way back in 1884, and soon Ball became a household name. Although the practice of home canning is much less common these days, the Ball Mason jar design has recently been revived as a hot trend for use in decor and drink service. It's a fun "blast from the past" that has that trendy vintage appeal, and for many, it has sentimental value as well. Perhaps you grew up with canning jars in your home or you remember them fondly from trips to Grandma's house. This large 1-gallon commemorative Mason jar has so many potential uses in your home. The large size and clear glass is perfect for displaying any number of items, including candies, pastas, baking ingredients, art supplies, collections and more. Fill it with colorful marbles to add to the vintage feel or with dried flowers for a charming shabby chic look. You could even use it as a change depository. The opportunities for contents are nearly endless, as are the places you might put it on display. The Ball jar adds effortless charm to your kitchen, sun porch, study, craft room, office, workshop or nearly any other room of the house.
