DIY Mason Jar Bathroom Organizer
I'm back! Back in Illinois, back to blogging, back to my blessed, normal routine. And, to be honest, it feels good. As much as I love the holidays and vacations, I'm glad to be able to settle into all things regular and actually move forward with life. I have a bunch of projects in the wings and can't wait to finish them and show them to you, so be sure to keep checking back.
Before the holidays I was browsing around our local thrift store, Etcetera, when I came across a bunch of mason jars for $0.25 each. As soon as I saw them I knew what I was going to do with them. This DIY mason Jar bathroom organizer is a project I've been wanting to do for a long time mostly because it looked so simple and I could do it with things found around the house (which tends to be the dictating force of what projects I decided to do. Maybe that's because I hate shopping.)
What you'll need:
1. Start with a nice, free pallet board. I sanded this one down and cleaned it up a bit as it was covered in dirt. If you want to stain or paint it, now would be the time to do so. I chose to leave it in all it's rustic glory.
2. I had forgotten to add the sawtooth picture hangers to the back until the end, which made things difficult. To hang it on the wall, you'll want to put the picture hangers on the back before doing anything to the front
3. At this point I struggled to figure out how I was going to attach the hose clamps to the wood. I'd first envisions just screwing through the last little slot, but that was way too narrow. I still don't have a hammer drill (next on the list maybe?) and didn't want to go buy one today. So, after much trial and error, I found these hooks would be perfect. Nail them into the board as you would to hang a picture and then slide the hose clamp into the hook. Sorry I didn't take a picture of this, but once you have the loop inside the hook, push the hook down to secure it.
4. Unscrew the hose clamps so that the loop is large enough to get the mason jar into it. Once the jar is in place, tighten them up. Be careful not to make them too tight and break the glass. Do this for every jar, hang the whole thing on the wall, and fill it with little bathroom things.
See, that was so easy! And now you and I have a wonderfully functional and imperfectly charming bathroom organizer.
