DIY Customized Storage Jars


When the item comes to decorating your home, there are three options: you can buy fresh items, repurpose or DIY. Guess what might be my favourite? of which’s right! I always try to use things I can find at home first, if possible.  Jars are one of those items, we all have along with we all use, simply because they are functional. They are great storage accessories, however usually they are plain along with most of the time kept hidden from the cabinets or basements. Yes, speaking about those few jars you are hiding there too!

You will need:

  • old jars along with metal boxes (I have used a coffee box)
  • wooden beads
  • a piece of strong string
  • spray paints in your preferred colors (I used white along with gold)
  • nail along with hammer / drill


1. Before starting This particular project, wash well all the jars along with containers you want to transform, then wait for them to dry well.

2. Spray paint the lids having a golden paint along with the base of the cans with white paint – depending on the material your containers are made of, you might find the item difficult to cover the design with the first coat of white paint, so spray paint the item many times. The coffee can I used needed three coats of paint to become fully covered.
