Organization: 20 Ways To Use Mason Jars + Free Printable

Mason jars are inexpensive, durable and trending.  If you ask me they never really go out of style, but,  instead, add a shabby-chic quality.  When used for organization, thing are easily displayed and you know exactly what you have (or maybe what you need to get).

I’ve gathered the brilliants of different DIYers and created this conveniently located – all in one place – list for you to enjoy and be inspired by.  Happy organizing!

MASON JAR TAG PRINTABLE
Download Mason Jar Tag Printable
MasonJarTags

1.  Click on “Download Mason Jar Tag Printable”.
2.  Print on thin card stock 8 1/2×11
3.  Cut out using scissors or a 2 in. circle punch.
4.  Be creative:  jot down what’s in the jar or a little note, then glue it to the top of the mason jar lid or punch a hole in the tag and tie it around the neck of the jar.

OR MAYBE THIS:  Use baskets to group the mason jars together for more organized storage in cupards and drawrs, or even on countertops.  This would work great for sewing, crafting, office and kids art supplies.  It will help give a polished look.  If you want to leave the jars out in plain sight, a great way to add some color into your room is to paint the inside of the jar or maybe just the lid.  Shoot, it’d look just as cute in the baskets too!  Make the most of a smaller space by screwing the lids to the bottom of a shelf or attaching them to a piece of plywood with a metal pipe clamp and let the jars hang out to clear up so me counter space.

If YOU have any more ideas, let me know….I might need to do a Part 2.

  1. I keep my paintbrushes and glue sticks for my glue gun in mason jars right now, but I think you’ve inspired me to add them to every room in the house! I especially like the matches, spices, and toothpaste/toothbrush ideas! Very cute.
