When I became a homeowner I started saving jars, being both crafty and thrifty this just seemed like a natural habit to begin.  I suddenly had cabinets to keep them in and a host of projects in my mind that I could someday do with all these jars.  I have used them for gifts, storage, and decorations.  Each time I create something with an old jar I think how glad I am that I saved it.  This past week I shared some mason jar storage ideas on The Morning Blend (click the link to watch the segment) and I got such a positive response that I wanted to share all the details on the bathroom storage jars here. 

Pin this Mason Jar Storage now so you can recreate it later.

I used 2 jars, of varying size, to create pretty containers for cotton balls and Q-tips. I currently have very large hard to open containers in our main bathroom but they take up so much space and my daughter has a really hard time opening them.  These smaller containers are not only easier to access, they are much more pleasing on the eye.

Here is what I used for this Mason Jar storage project.  

  • 2 glass mason jars with lids
  • Paint – DecoArt Americana Metallics in Pewter and High gloss black craft paint
  • Paint brushes
  • White paint pen
  • Gold spray paint (optional)
  • Circle sticker – either a sticker or a cut piece of contact paper
  • Wood Knob
  • E6000 adhesive – the best craft glue

This project is part of a fun monthly Craft Destash group.  We create projects using items we already have.  I didn’t have to buy anything for this mason jar storage project, all the items were in my craft room just waiting to be used.  Be sure to check out the other blogger projects at the end of this post for more crafty inspiration.

Step 1:  Use a circle sticker, or punch a circle out of contact paper, and stick it to a clean jar.  Then paint over the sticker with Pewter paint.  Once this is dry, remove the sticker.  Paint the smaller jar black and let that dry as well.

Step 2:  Glue the 2 pieces of the mason jar lid together using E6000 adhesive, and glue the knob to the top. For this project my knob was already gold, if your items are different colors you will want to spray paint them all one color.  This can be done after everything is glued and dry.

Step 3:  Once the black jar is dry, get creative with a paint pen.  I drew a few arrows on mine.

Step 4:  Once everything is dry, fill with bathroom essentials and display.
