I like personal care items stored in clean, sealed containers. Who doesn't? With Mom home, I need to make that happen, so let's grab a few items and cobble together a decorative place to house her cotton swabs.
Sure, we could just use a pickle jar, but where's the fun in that?
You will need:A canning jar
Two NEGLINGE candleholders from IKEA, $0.49 each
A leftover drawer knob
A painted sea shell
Some silicon adhesive
Enough wine to make this seem like a good idea.
First, we're going to glue the two portions of the lid together. You can skip this step if you're using
a jar with a solid lid.
Aren't you glad I told you that?
Don't worry about the mess.
We're going to make more.
Set one of the candle holders on the adhesive smeared all over the lid.
Put more sticky stuff on the top of that.
Attach your drawer knob.
Then the shell as a decorative element.
Flip the jar over and glue the other candle holder to the bottom of it as a pedestal.
Lastly, trim the lid with a little ribbon for color.
Allow everything to dry, fill your jar, and enjoy that this ran you some scraps and a dollar.
That was easy! I think we need a couple more.
