Storage Solution

Although not especially ground-breaking, sometimes the simplest ideas are the most useful. Simply washing out your jars and filling with whatever you need to be stored safely is a great way to save money and create eclectic kitchen furnishings. You can also store food items in our jars such as herbs and spices!

Indoor Planter

The tall nature of the jar (pardon the pun) means it is the perfect candidate to be upcycled into a plant pot as there is plenty of room for roots to grow. We decided to grow a cactus but given they once stored delicious food, why not continue the tradition and tie a few St. Dalfour jars together and create your own herb garden.

Cocktail Glasses

Want some truly unique cocktail glasses to enjoy on a summers evening? The unique shape of our jars provide the perfect glass for your favourite beverages. You could add a handle or even pop a straw through a hole in the lid to create an eclectic cocktail glass.

Night Light

The intricate glass work comes to life with the addition of a battery powered tealight. Our jars are the perfect size for lighting in the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom or even in the garden sure to set the scene all over your home. If you’re feeling crafty, why not create a candle with your Jar of St. Dalfour by adding a wick and wax to the scent of your choosing.
