If you’re like me, you have a million pens and pencils in your house; you just don’t know where they all are. Take a stand with me and organise your life (or at least your writing instruments) with these easy-to-make organisational craft jars. The modern and graphic jars are great for your office desk or even your kids’ homework area. You can make them in less than 30 minutes (minus drying time).
- white paint
- Mod Podge
- mason jars
- scrapbook or decorative paper (can also use tissue paper)
Step 1: Paint the inside of the mason jar with white paint. Surprisingly you only need one coat. Let dry.
Step 2: Cut out the paper shapes that you will be using to decorate the jars.
Step 3: Use your paintbrush to spread Mod Podge over your mason jar. Place your paper shapes onto the jar. Spread Mod Podge over the top of the paper. If you use thicker paper like I did, you will have to press the corners of the paper down for a few seconds so they flatten out. Let dry.
