teacher organization mason jars

It’s no simple task keeping school supplies organized, but you can make it easy with this adorable set of personalized Mason jars! Our video and instructions will show you how to whip up this little group of organizers in no time. It’s the perfect gift for a teacher!
Step 1
First, unscrew the lid from each of your three Mason jars. Take one lid and separate its two parts (the metal ring and the flat lid). Add hot glue around the inside of the metal ring, then push the flat lid back into place so that it’s glued permanently to the ring. Place a few magnets onto the inside of the lid, then flip it over again – now you have a magnetic paper clip holder!

TIP: You won’t need the other two Mason jar lids. You can discard them or save them for a future project. 
Step 2
Next, wrap a piece of your masking tape in a straight line around each Mason jar, about 1" - 2" from the bottom. Press your fingers over the tape’s bottom edge to make sure it’s completely stuck to the jar, to keep paint from seeping underneath.

TIP: The tape will act as a guide as you paint, to ensure straight lines on all your jars.
Step 3
Now, use a foam brush to paint each Mason jar below its line of tape. Let the first coat dry, then add an additional coat or two until the paint coverage is even and opaque. Remember to let each coat of paint dry before you add a new one. 
Step 4
Carefully peel away the tape from each jar. 
Step 5
Almost done! To finish, just add a chalkboard sticker to the center of each jar and use your chalk marker to label the jar’s contents or write a cute saying.
