Easy Organizer With Mason Jars and Scrap Wood

3 Materials
30 Minutes

We can never have enough organizers! Especially something that uses mason jars! I came up with a fun mason jar idea that not only uses mason jars but also scrap wood! And the best part - it can be made to hole as many jars as you like and used in so many ways to organize so many things!

I decided to use jelly jars instead of mason jars because they were the exact height I wanted. Plus I used a few pieces of square dowels and piece of plywood. Also, I used floral wire (not shown in the picture).

Staple the floral wire across 2 dowel "posts" to create a "fence". I used 3 wires. Make 2 of these for both sides. Then I nailed the posts to the edge of the plywood using my nail gun.

For the shorter sides, I used trim left over from another project and nailed 2 pieces. I also used wood glue.

Paint it and add your mason jars or jelly jars and use it to organize utensils for your party! It works well in any setting - not just outdoor barbecues!
I actually use it as a desk organizer for all my pens and pencils and markers on the modern farmhouse desk that I built.
It makes a great housewarming gift too.

    Great idea for family gatherings to keep all utensils in one place.

    I was inspired by your project and made this little basket with some of the spare wood I seem to accumulate. Thanks for the inspiration.
