From herbs to terrariums, mason jars hold it all.  There are plenty of tutorials out there to tell you exactly how, or you could just use it as a flower pot.

If you don’t like much of work, just put sand, rock, or shells, in the jar and stick a little candle on top of it for a cute summery look.  Or you can put oil and a string (fiberglass wick) in it to make your own candle, (and maybe some citronella, peppermint, lemon, eucalyptus, basil, clove, thyme, lemongrass, geranium, or lavender in with it to keep the bugs away). Holiday themes are great, too!
