Ball’s #HeritageBlue Pinterest Contest and Big Giveaway

by Dagmar Bleasdale on June 17, 2013

Dagmar's Home: blue Ball mason jar soap dispenser, #heritagebluePinterest has taken the home decor and home entertaining worlds by storm, and if you are into crafting and DIY, you know how many pins are showcasing the versatility of mason jars. Plus, people love them for their affordable price point.

I’m a bit of a mason jar fanatic. I have collection of vintage jars and just recently bought another one at an antique show, and I use mason jars to store all kinds of things in our home. Plus, I like making things out of mason jars.

As you know from my previous post and giveaway, this year the Ball brand introduced a limited-edition, vintage-inspired jar, the Ball Heritage Collection Jar.

Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Ball brothers’ Perfect Mason Jar, the Ball Heritage Collection Pint Jars feature a pretty blue tint and embossed logos on the front and back.

Ball’s “Heritage Blue” Contest

Ball Heritage Blue Contest

Check out Ball’s “Share Your Heritage Blue” Pinterest board from Ball! Each Pinterest user who repins from this board with the hashtag #heritageblue will be entered to win a prize pack of the Ball FreshTECH jam and jelly maker and a case of Heritage Collection Jars (official rules).

Or pin one or more of my images in this blog post! I have made it very easy and added Pin buttons to every picture.

The more you pin to your boards, the more chances you have to win — just make sure you add the #heritageblue hashtag to the description or your entry will not count. Ball will leave a comment on the winning pin after 11:59 on June 24 when the sweepstakes ends.

Ball asked me to create five fun things with these blue mason jars, and here is how I use them around our home:

Since I’m a candlemaker, I couldn’t resist to make soy candles out of the blue mason jars. They make wonderful gifts, and I’m even selling them now at Harvest Moon Farm & Orchard in South Salem, NY.

I also made a yarn dispenser with burlap and lace trim:

This one was easy: I simply added one of the blue jars to a candlestick for more height and a pop of color:

The pint jar is the perfect size for my new soap dispenser. I added Legos for extra fun for Landon.

My last idea: a cute sewing tools kit with needle pillow I made out of half a styrofoam ball that I covered with fabric and hot-glued to the lid top:
