Long neck bottles, like coke bottles, I like to melt different colored condles in, the wax drips and makes a pretty.

Bigger jars I use for things like bath salts. I have a ton of prenatal jars that I use for salts, mouth wash mix, and the like.

No I haven't, but I don't really have any glass jars to repurpose.  I'd have to buy them for the purpose of crafts.

I like to punch a hole in the lid and you can use them with a straw to drink from. It isn't exactly leak proof but liquid isn't immediately everywhere if it gets knocked over either.

I used them as gifts to my son's therapists when he left ES. We filled them with m&ms and attached a nice poem to them

Some pretty awesome ideas!!!

I use them to put, for example, the extra beans I'm not using back to the fridge. 

I've also done the bottle full of Christmas lights as decoration.

Glass jars are great for homemade paint, burning candles, broken up for a mosaic, and for decorations! I love glass jars! I collect them just because I always feel like I'll find a use for them.

I reuse glass jars all the time. I put small amounts of bath stuff in them and give them out as presents for friends bdays.
