DIY Craft Room Storage Jars
This project can nearly be free if you don’t have to purchase the baby food jars. I have 10 month old twins so I’ve been going through these three times a day–times two– they’re practically coming out my ears. And with so many of them, I had to put them to good use, right? I decided they would be the perfect solution to the craft room/office we are dreaming up for our basement.
Not only are these a cheap solution to keep the little things organized, they are the perfect size, are clear so you can see items inside and they look pretty. You can display them by hanging them by magnet under cabinets, store them on floating shelves or hide them away in drawers.
Clean the jars
Tear off any paper or stickers on the jars and wash them with warm water and soap. I put mine through the dishwasher, lids and all. Use Goo Gone or rubbing alcohol to get the sticky residue off.
Spray the lids
I used Rust-oleum Metallic Aluminum Ultra Cover and loved the results. I sprayed four lids at a time in our garage using plastic cups so I could get the sides of the lids. Spray in a well ventilated area and about 6-8 inches from the lid. This project only needs one coat!
These handy DIY craft room storage jars will help keep everything in its place. If you’re wondering what you could use such small jars for, here are just a few that I used mine for.
5. paper clips
6. sewing pins
7. sewing machine feet
8. brads and eyelets
9. glass pebbles
10. scrapbooking embelishments
Storing the jars
These can be showcased on a floating shelf or stuck to a magnetic strip under a cabinet. They can also be hid away in a drawer and labeled on top for easy access.
