Glass jars add an instant touch of sophistication and class to almost anything. From improving food and drinks to levelling up your indoor and outdoor décor, there are so many awesome ways to use glass jars. Your most difficult task will be deciding which of these ideas you’re going to try first…

Get healthy

Yes, Consol jars can help you get healthy! Don’t believe us? Start taking a homemade smoothie to work for breakfast and a delicious layered salad in a jar for lunch and you’ll see what we mean. Before you know it, people will be coming to you for advice on how to eat more fruit and veggies. Bonus – you’ll end up saving all the money you would’ve spent buying lunch.

Keep kids busy

The opportunities for crafting with Consol jars are almost endless. But one of our favourite ideas is making these cute toy jars. You’ll keep the kids occupied for at least an afternoon and you’ll end up with some handy toy or stationery storage jars too. Everyone wins!

Bring the outside in

Add a few cut flowers to a mismatched collection of jars and you’ve just achieved professional decorator status with almost zero effort. It’s a budget-friendly way to make a big impact with your décor.

Pantry perfect

A neat row of jars on your pantry shelf doesn’t only look great, but it also stops bugs getting into your cooking staples, keeping them fresher for longer. Consol’s blackboard panel jars make it easy to keep track of exactly what’s in each jar.

Wow your dinner guests

Everyone knows that mini food tastes better than regular food, which is why we recommend serving mini desserts in jars at the end of a show-stopping dinner party. Whether you decide to go with tiramisu, cupcakes or even a simple chocolate mousse, everything is better when you serve it in a jar.

Make a DIY chandelier

It might seem like an impossible task, but even someone with zero DIY experience can make a Consol jar chandelier. Click here for the full tutorial. (You will need an electrician to put the finishing touches on your chandelier, but it will be more than worth it in the end.)

Light it up

Nothing adds to the atmosphere like some mood lighting. Place candles in jars, add some flowers to the inside of Consol solar jars, or fill jars with fairy lights and get ready for a magical evening.

Stock up on jars at the Consol Red Hot Sale from 25 July to 6 August at the Consol Shop in Woodmead (Gauteng), Stellenbosch (Western Cape) or Cornubia Mall (KZN). For more information, visit #consolredhotsale
