Searching for some fun, easy and creative solutions to organize your space? Mason Jars can help you with this. They make magnificent devices for sorting out. Putting away stuff in Mason Jars are verging on interminable. Everything that will suit could be put away in these economical glass holders. From the kitchen to the lavatory and make room.
Mason Jars come in numerous sizes and shapes. The primary qualification is in the mouth size (or the opening of the jug). The two most basic sizes are Wide Mouth and Regular. There are some more random sizes out there, however these are few and far between and difficult to find rings and tops for. The second distinction is in their size. They can be as small as 250ml and then you can commonly find jars that are 500 ml (or about 1 pint) or 1 L (same as quart). Then there are the 2 L (or 2 quart/ half gallon) jars. Among all these different sizes, the shapes vary slightly depending on the size of the jar’s mouth and the style of the jar.
Here are 16 incredible ideas for keeping your home organized with Mason Jars:
- Take the top out of the lid and replace with sandpaper. Instant match holder.
- Repurpose them as a wall-hung bathroom storage. Metal picture hangers and pipe clamps attached to a piece of wood will hold your mason jars.
- Yarn dispenser. Drill a hole into the top of a mason jar for cute, colorful yarn storage.
- Same way as you made the yarn dispenser, you can also repurpose it as a ribbon dispenser.
- Magnetic spice rack with a use of mini mason jars. This is an awesome idea if you’ve got stainless steel going on in your kitchen. Fill jars with spices, label them, and glue magnets to the lids.
- Use mason jars as sewing kits. Top with a pin cushion of your own making: separate the sealer and the screw cap. Place the sealer bottom side up on fabric and, using a pencil, draw a circle around it, about an inch wider all around. Use a glue gun to pipe a bit of glue along the rim, then fold the fabric around the rim, creating little bunches as you do. When you’re three-quarters of the way around the lid, stuff cotton batting between the fabric and the lid, making sure it’s even; finish folding the fabric and seal. Apply hot glue to the inside of the screw cap, place the sealer, and press. Allow it to dry.
- Nail lids into the bottom of a wooden shelf. Fill the jars up with your buttons or crafting materials and screw the jar back onto the lid when you’re done. This would also be great for storing pasta in a kitchen.
- Store salads for a picnic or quick lunch.
- Label with a hot glue gun. Inscibe your label with a hot glue gun, let it dry, and then proceed to paint the outside of the mason jar.
- Glue jars together to create an office supply organizer. Turn the jars onto their sides and hot-glue them together.
- Decorate with a rope, repurposing them as a decorated container.
- Use mason jars to organize art supplies. Kids can easily see inside the glass jars to find what they’re looking for, from crayons to glue sticks. Go lid-less for extra-long items, like pipe cleaners or colored pencils.
