Does your child have a hard time keeping her stuff organized?  I love that kiddos like to collect little trinkets, goodies and treasures.  But I don’t like that it ends up in all of the nooks and crannies in their bedrooms and especially all over the top of their desks!  That desk isn’t just for looks, in my daughter’s room it’s meant as her artwork and homework station.  Silly girl!  After I put in many hours making over her coral tween bedroom, the least I could ask for is to keep it tidy!

  1. I absolutely 💖 your clever idea! The couldn’t be cuter! I am going to use this to make an adorable way of displaying/organizing my sprinkles! I was wondering if you know how I could cut the long screw part since I’m using it for food? Would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you so much! I just finished relabeling and scrubbing a bunch of jars! Oh, and any tips for removing the labels would be awesome…that job was no fun and felt like I wasted a ton of water during a drought. 😬

    1. Hi! You can pop a hole it in then use a knob that has the screw that screws into the knob so it’s flat into the jar. Also, lemon oil will pull it off with no water 🙂

  2. Don’t laugh at my silly question…where did the diamond pattern jar come from? I LOVE it!! ?

  3. I have been recycling jars for as many years I can remember and painted their lids, sometimes decoupaged pictures on some but never have thought to put knobs on the lids. What a neat idea, I love it. I thought as I red your instructions that perhaps I would drill the hold for the knob before painting the lids, just to assure that the paint won’t chip. Gonna do it … thanks so much!

  4. What a wonderful idea! I have so many things in my workshop that will fill these beautiful jars! Thanks for sharing!

  5. What a great idea. I’ll never throw away a cute jar again! Hobby Lobby has all their knobs 50% off this week. Perfect timing to make these. Thanks for sharing.

  6. These are beautiful. I bought some old jars at a yardsale ages ago hoping to use like this. They have the old country geese with bonnets on them. They’ve been around a while. Any easy ideas to remove design? Thanks

  7. I love those! I made them this weekend. They turned out really cute. The only issue I have is that the paint is coming off, I used the sealer too. Any ideas? Did I maybe paint it on too thick?

    1. Hi Courtney,
      So glad they’re cute BUT that’s lame the paint is coming off! What type of paint did you use? The sealer should make it hard to come off, scratch, etc. What a pain, I’m so sorry!

      PS: DecoArt makes paint specifically for glass (chalky paint for glass OR regular glass paint) that is bomb for this project if you can’t get regular acrylic to stay.

  8. These are adorable! They caught my eye in your scrolling banner on your front page. They are so simple and a great way to use up some knobs I have had for years with no project for them.

    I really like your use of color too. Did you find that any kind of paint worked better on lids than other kinds? I have some glass coconut oil jars with metal type lids that I would paint. All I have are some older acrylics and latex paint. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    1. Thanks Kelli! They are a great way to upcycle for sure. We used inexpensive acrylic paint and its held well! Spray paint will also do the trick. 😉 Happy painting! XO
