Pimms O'clock

It is officially summer, so a bottle of Pimms is a necessity, right? If you're a fan of a tipple then why not add your cucumber and and berries to a Kilner jar this summer time instead of a regular glass. If you're not a fan of alcohol then fill it with some homemade lemonade, which will go down a treat.

Light it Up

We have seen so many amazing ways of using Kilner jars as light, but some of them require a professional electrician to help you wire them up correctly. So we have chosen this decorative piece, it's a great way of adding more light to a room with some simple fairy lights.

Store it Away

One of the most inventive ways of using Kilner jars is for storage and not just as jars. This idea has gone as far as glueing lids to a shelf and screwing the jar from underneath, such an amazing idea if you're short on space around the house.
