Here's the best crafting tip I have ever given: Keep every glass jar and lid that you can. Wash the jars, peel off the labels and keep them for projects.

i do not understand how this is considered upcycling! Look at all those perfectly good mason jars whose foodstoring lives have been cut cruelly short.

The look of rugged, raw metal and thick glass I think sums this trend up nicely. From wire caging to mason jars, it's hot hot hot right now.
