DIY Mason Jar Sugar Container


I had intended on purchasing a sugar container that had a pour spout, but never remembered to look for one the millions of times we went to Home Goods or TJMaxx.

The other week, I had finally finished the container of salt and it was sitting on the counter next to one of the mason jars I had just washed out. That's when the idea popped in my head. I could just cut out the top of the salt container and insert into the mason jar instead of the metal top!

The first thing you need to do is to cut off the top of the salt container.

Then trace the old metal circle from the mason jar onto the salt container lid and cut it out. At this point you can add a paper/fabric overlay over the plain white cardboard to make it look more professional, but I just left it white for now.

Fill the mason jar with sugar and secure the new lid on top.
