DIY Mason Jar Ribbon Organizer

2 Materials
10 Minutes
I've been trying to get even more organized lately, and although I don;t exactly have the perfect office, I do have sort of an office-in-a-cabinet in the dining room, and a craft-room-in-a-dresser in there as well. Apparently they’re actually working pretty well for us because when I went in there to do some major organizing, I realized that everything was actually in pretty good shape!
Luckily, in this case anyway, my ribbon stash was looking a little disheveled so I thought I’d make this easy mason jar organizer for the smaller spools.
Here’s how you can make one too! Start out with a mason jar tall enough to fit all the rolls you want to put in it, and you'll need the lid as well. I used an old pasta sauce jar that I cleaned out. [You can find my favorite method for  removing the labels cleanly here, and tips on deodorizing jar lids  here if you think you’d like to reuse a jar for this too!]
Next you’ll need to drill enough holes to accommodate the number of rolls of ribbon you have in your jar.

Make a few extra just in case! Then all you have to do is add your rolls of ribbon into the jar and thread them through each hole in the lid. So simple, yet very effective!

    Awesome idea. However, are the holes sharp? Wonder if ribbons can get snagged.

    do you not have problems with the jagged edges of the drilled holes fraying the ribbon??? Otherwise love the idea!!!
