Make Mason Jar Salt and Pepper Shakers

When Kierste from Simply Kierste needed some salt and pepper shakers in a pinch, she had an idea that turned out to be practical, simple, quick, and inexpensive – how can you go wrong with a combination like that?  By adding custom cardboard inserts to the tops of small mason jars (she used the 4 ounce size), she created a charming set of shakers that are perfect for summer picnics or casual dining with friends and family.  They would also make a wonderful hostess gift!  [how to make mason jar salt and pepper shakers]
