We don't have a lot of storage in our home and I've found myself having to become creative in order to keep things organized. Our art supplies were stashed everywhere and needed an official home. So, I decided to make this closet more versatile than just laundry, and chose to store our craft and art supplies in here, too.
These organizers were incredibly simple to make, and are made entirely out of empty mason jars and craft wire. Here's how to do it!
Unscrew the lids from the mason jars and discard the insert. Cut three or four pieces of thin craft wire at approximately 4" long each. Tie them around the lid securely at opposite corners.
Then, tie each lid under the bottom of your shelving unit by wrapping the wire around the rungs. If you don't have this type of shelving system, you can always drill holes into a wood shelf using a power drill. Once secured, snip off the excess wire using a wire cutter.
Fill the mason jars with your favorite goodies and then screw them back onto the lids. Be careful not to over-tighten the jar or you might inadvertently snap off the wire. Then, enjoy!
I absolutely love these mason jar organizers, and find myself using them every day to store tape, chalk, glue, and other odds and ends. They are perfect for craft rooms, playrooms, laundry rooms, mudrooms, and garages.
Hope you like them, too!
