Updating Mason Jars With White Plastic Lids

Updating Mason Jars With White Plastic Lids. DagmarBleasdale.comI adore mason jars.

I’ve blogged about mason jars, I’ve made candles out of them, I have a whole Pinterest board I titled Mason Jar Love, and I wrote about 7 Ways to Decorate With Mason Jars for eBay.

You can find mason jars all over our house — a collection of vintage blue mason jars and many new ones I store things in.

I recently made a small change in our kitchen I’m pretty happy with: I updated the mason jars I use to store dry goods and sweets in with white plastic lids.

Small change, big impact.

I showed you those mason jars when I wrote about our farmhouse kitchen.

As you can see, some of the lids were gold and some silver. So when I found inexpensive, BPA-free white plastic lids for mason jars, I bought a box of big plastic lids and a box of small ones to update my jars.

I think the white lids go better with our white kitchen. Plus, they kind of look unexpected and cool. Have you seen white mason jar lids before? I hadn’t.

I love your post on the Mason Jars and your Pinterest board! I have friends that work with a local company that makes mason jar flip caps and is now bringing out a shaker cap! These are really cool and I think you would love them. Check out masonjars.com. I will tweet this post to them! They love all mason jar uses.

I found them at Walmart. I really like them for storing leftovers and small amounts of dry items (pasta, flour, sesame seeds, candy, etc.). The only thing that folks should know is the lids are not as tight as the metal rings, so liquids will leak out of the plastic lids. I like to make iced tea at home and take a quart jar of tea to work; if I am careful and keep the jar completely upright, I can use the plastic lid but if it tips even slightly, the bottom of my insulated lunch bag gets wet. I will either put a piece of saran wrap between the jar and the plastic lid or use the metal lid and ring for beverages. I do use the plastic lids for soup, which usually is thick enough not to leak.

Hi Nance, thanks for all those tip! Since I only use the lids on jars with dry goods that sit in our kitchen, I hadn’t noticed that.
