It’s already a given that a condo unit has been designed by an architect and his team of designers and renovating is limited to what the management will allow you to.

You can totally customize your place by activating your creativity and buying a couple of Mason jars.

Painted Mason Jar Vase
You need a Mason jar and acrylic paint in the color of your choice. Pour acrylic paint in the jar until the paint is about half an inch thick at the bottom. Turn the jar upside down and slowly let the paint run down until the entire inside of the jar is covered with paint. Then, still upside down, put the jar on a newspaper or thick cardboard so the excess paint can drip out. You can also do this with spray paint and just spray the inside of the jar until you’re happy with the opacity of the color.

Fill up half of the jar with some rocks, activated charcoal (to keep the water fresh), and soil. Then carefully arrange the plants of your choice inside the jar before screwing the lid in place. If you want a terrarium with a more summer-y vibe, you can replace the soil and plants with sand and beach finds like sea shells, dried up starfish, driftwood.
Simply cut your picture to fit then slip it into the jar. You can add glitter or sequins or even shells to add a more creative touch.

Choose a small figurine or figurines for your globe. Then glue it on the center of the jar’s lid using water resistant glue. Fill the jar with water almost to the top then pour glitter as much as you want. Apply some glue on the outer rims of the lid then place it back on the jar. Wait for a few moments or until glue is dry. Turn the jar upside down and watch the glitter fall like snow on the figurine. If you want to make it into a party decoration, simply switch out the Christmas-themed figurines for small toys. These will also be good as party giveaways.
You can also replace the Christmas ornaments with a figurine of your choosing. That can be used in a party or an event that has a theme. Simply, change the figurine and put glitters, sand, Styrofoam balls or anything you want. Mix and match the decors to fit your desired theme.
Who knew that with a bit of creativity and a couple of Mason jars you can transform your condo’s interior to your liking? And they’re not only good as house ornaments; you can also give them as gifts to a friend or to your family as well.
