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?
Supplies For Mason Jar Organizer Tutorial:
- A tray of your choice (mine is sparkly silver)
- Silver spray paint
- (3) 12 or 16 oz mason jars (mine are 16 oz)
- Super Glue
- Drawer knobs with screws
- Measuring ruler or tap.
- Dry erase pencil
- Drill with drill bits
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.
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.
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.
Okay, it’s time to measure center of the mason jar’s lid to give a perfect look to your organizer.
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.
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.
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.
I am pretty happy how they turned out! I placed all my every day make-up supplies in them for an easy approach.
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!

I love your creativity! Those would look so cute on my bathroom vanity 🙂
Thank you! I have no idea why but I love those jars!
These are beautiful! I love them with the flowers. I bought a bag of drawer knobs at a junk sale years ago. Now I know what I can do with them!
Thank you so much, Michelle, I like them with followers too.

Alas I’d rather buy them than make them.
Pity that you are so far from me.

This is a very beautiful DIY! I loved how all of them turned out. Such a clean and practical way of keeping things organised! ?
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?
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.
Thanks DJ, indeed it’s an easy way, thanks for visiting!!!
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.
