They’ve been around for a century, but I  think it’s fair to say that the  mason jar has enjoyed a surge of popularity  in the past few years as these glass jars commonly used for food storage have creatively  found ways to be used for so much more.

Do you need some candle holders? Fancy making a chandelier for your home? Have you been given a bunch of flowers that you have no vase for? We have some good news. Grab your mason jars, because we’ve got the best ways to upcycle them into something magnificent for your homes.

1.  Mason Jar  Candle Holders

If you’re not lucky enough to live with easy access to clear blue sea, and gloriously white sand, then bring a little bit of the seaside to your home with these net wrapped fishermen mason jars. Line them with a little sand and pop a candle into them, and you’ve got a beautiful glass candle holder with a seaside twist. Decorate your sideboard with these candles, or use them outside for a party, we guarantee they’ll get complimented.  See how to make yours here.

These chalk painted mason jars are a perfect way of adding a shabby chic edge to your home.

And with so many colour variations possible, you can paint these in whichever colour best suits your decor choices.  See how to make yours here.

3.  Mason Jar Chandelier  

We never considered using mason jars for a chandelier, but  the outcome is surprisingly beautiful and unique. Chandeliers are a really nice decor alternative to add a bit of glamour to a dull room, or to simply spruce it up a bit. And this design made from upcycling mason jars is a mix between quirky, and shabby chic. And if you have a room that’s white and a little on the plain side, this is the perfect way to add a splash of colour, we love it. See how to make yours  here.

 4.  Mason Jar Penpots

Whether you have an office that is in need of some organizing, or if you have children and are sick and tired of finding their felt tip pens littered round the home like a Hansel and Gretel bread trail, this is a super quick, easy and attractive way of giving those pens a home. Upcycle these mason jars into pen pots in your office, or in your children’s bedroom, either way it’s going to look pretty cool. See how to make yours here.

5.  Mason Jar Party Cups

No longer will you spend the aftermath of a party going round and finding plastic cups discarded in bizarre places. If you’re holding a party or even a wedding reception, mason jars are a fun accessory  to include.  Pop in a funky coloured straw, wrap a bow or some string around them and you have a unique beverage holder for the occasion. And we can almost guarantee that people won’t be clumsily leaving these in the garden bush, whilst we  we can’t guarantee they won’t want to take one home as a souvenir.  See how to make yours here.

Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

Eluxe Magazine may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password.

In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here.
