Do It Yourself Mason Jar Organizer

Happy New Year to all my lovely readers! This DIY mason jar organizer project is my first post of the year. I love mason jars, and the most beautiful thing is that you can transform them in so many ways without spending a fortune.

Well, today’s project is very special to me, as I have some kind of obsession with mason jars. However, I have not a clue why. But whenever I see those cute jars, they just make me happy and I like to use them for so many things around the house. So, let’s start our project and turn these dull mason jars into some beautiful organizers, shall we?

Step By Step Instructions:

It’s not a rocket science guys and you are smart people out there. It will take you less than 30 minutes to create this mason jar organizer after the prep. The time I spent the most time while I was waiting for the glue and spray paint to be dried. Otherwise, this is one of the quick do-it-yourself-to-handle types of crafts.

Step one:

So for this project, the first thing to do is separate the rings and the base out of the mason jars’ lids, as they come apart easily because you want them to be fixed and to be a one-piece. Second, use super glue to put them together. Be a bit cautious while using super glue, as it has to be used properly otherwise it will leave your lids crooked.

Separate the rings from the bases.

Now, apply the glue inside of the ring and place your base over it. Place some weight over the base so it can stick together, and let it dry for at least 15 minutes, and don’t rush. Otherwise, they will come apart quick as glue takes time to get dried.

Step two:

Okay, it’s time to measure center of the mason jar’s lid to give a perfect look to your organizer.

It’s best to measure from the inner side

Step Three:

Use your dill to drill the hole in the center of the lid. If you don’t have a drill, no worries, you can also use a hammer. My husband and I do several projects together so he has his whole workshop in our garage where he keeps all his Ryobi tools.

Yes, we love Ryobi tools. Be careful don’t poke a hole into your table.

Step Four:

After drilling a hole into a mason jar’s lid, screw in the drawer knob. The ones I used were 50 cents each.

There you go, looks pretty nice and clean.

Step Five:

Finally, it’s ready for the spray paint. While I was spraying it, the usual Portland drizzling rain welcomed those lids. I kept going for the second coat. Looks pretty shiny.

Another way of using mason jars is as flower holders. A bit of water, a few flowers, and voila, you have a refreshing centerpiece for your table!

    1. Thank you so much, hey BTW, you can see me in wordpress again but it seems like not connected with my old site’s URL. You might have to follow me again on becasue it shows me 5 followers. God knows where I messed up?

  1. An easy way to find the center is to trace the lid on a piece of paper, cut out the circle, fold it in half once, then once again (so looks like a slice of pie), that is your center point.

  2. I like your idea, the jars look very nice. I wish all the DIY folks would give their tutorials as detailed as you do. You make your project steps very clear and easy to understand.
