We all have mason jars. I have them literally everywhere and I don’t know how I got so many. I use them to drink out of and one time I made a mason jar organizer that hangs on the wall. They make great soap dispensers and picture frames too! The possibilities are endless with these guys. So when I was getting ready one day, I had lots of stuff sitting out on the counter in ugly bags and packaging which was driving me crazy. I knew I could DIY something to fix the problem. That is why these DIY painted mason jar organizers were born and now I am going to show you how easy it is to make your own.
**You can also use old jars from spaghetti sauce or pickles for this project** <— They are FREE!
You will need:
- mason jars (or empty pickle jars)
- a drill
- chalk paint
- makeup sponges
- fancy cabinet knobs

This is perfect to use as a planter or pencil holder. You could make a bunch of them and add flowers for centerpieces at a party as well. If you need a fun and simple DIY teen craft, this is it. “]
Step One: Paint the lids to the mason jars with chalk paint. I have found that the best way to apply the paint is with those cheap makeup sponges from the dollar store. I love using them because they don’t leave brush strokes! You will need to do two coats of paint and let it fully dry in between.
Step Two: If your knobs are the exact color you want them, SKIP this step! If not, Take the knob apart and paint the knob with the desired color of chalk paint.
Step Three: Drill a hole in the middle of the mason jar lid. Be sure to use a drill bit that is slightly larger than the screw part of your knob.
Step Four: Reassemble the knob and attach it to the lid of the mason jar. There should be a screw part that you put through the hole and a bolt that screws on from the inside to keep it on there.
What a fun way to display your otherwise boring bathroom items like cotton balls and q tips. That is what I am using them for, but they could absolutely be used in your desk area to hold rubber bands, paperclips, and those sort of things. Can we talk about how inexpensive this project is too? I got the mason jars on sale at the craft store for less than a dollar each and the knobs were $1 at the thrift store. This is why we DIY people- right here!
