When you've finished using a jar, do you recycle it?

Many items in recycling bins may not end up being recycled for many reasons. There may have been some contamination in the recycling bag due to food leftovers or the materials weren't properly sorted so they couldn't be processed in a facility.

Upcycling and giving items a second life is a better alternative!

Keep reading for some fun ideas on how to upcycle those jars - you can even make them holiday-themed!
