Vintage Pictures in Mason Jars

Make a fantastic drcoration with some old photos and vegetable oil in the jar.
There are many creative photo display ideas on the web. One of my favourite was Photo Tile Coasters that Dominika wrote about some time ago.

Today I came across Vintage Pictures in Mason Jars and decided to make them for my kitchen dividing wall. Corin, the girl from Alaska who runs this awesome blog "August & After", prepared easy and very clear guide for this project.

I bet many of you love vintage photographs just like I do. So, hurry to buy some mason jars to complete this craft, and then decorate the house with some yellowish but still beautiful memories. This idea deserves to be shared with other handimaniacs!

    Photo paper will work fine, if you want pictures last longer, try to laminate them, it should help. Cheers and good luck! :)

    If I just put little notes in the mason jar with the picture do you think it would work
