Types of mason jars ideal for crafting

Mason jars come in different sizes (and lid shapes), so which one you should use depends on what project you are going to make.

But in general, these are the most popular types of mason jars that crafters use to sell:

  1. Ball Mason Regular Mouth Jars  

These are the most common type of mason jars and come in a variety of sizes, from 4 oz to 64 oz. They have smooth sides making them ideal for painting and crafting.

Pint size (16 oz) jars: The most common jar size for decor items, candles, or painting.

Quart size (32 oz) jars: making storage caddies, dispensers.

2. Mason Wide mouth Jars  

4 oz jars: For making small favor gifts or candles.

3. Mason Jar Cups/Mugs

These 16 oz mugs are suitable for cold liquids during summers.

4. Sublimation mason jar blanks

For making personalized mason jars using sublimation.

Mason Jar Steel Tumblers: These are stainless steel tumblers for both hot and cold liquids.

Mason Jar Froster Tumblers: These are frosted glass tumblers suitable for cold and hot.

Can you make money selling mason jar crafts?

Yes, selling mason jars can be profitable if you do your math first.

I have seen mason jars selling for as low as $5 to as high as $100 depending upon the uniqueness, design, and of course, the type of creation.

To give you some idea, here is an example:

A painted pint-size mason jar that costs about $2.50 sells for around $5.50 (without factoring in your other supply costs, time, and other overhead prices).

I am really not so impressed with the ROI of this particular example, but if you sell a set of these painted mason jars or add more decor elements to make them more unique, you could potentially make a lot more money.

Let’s look at more examples:

These decorative Christmas-themed mason jars sell for $11 each, while a set of three goes for $28.

To increase your ROI even more, you could offer customizations (color, size, adding little decoration element, names) to make them more unique and relevant to customers’ needs.

To make real money with mason jar crafts, you need to understand:

  • What are buyers looking for?
  • Create something unique that they can’t find in every store
  • Offer upsells like personalizations and bundles
  • Customize your products to meet seasonal needs
