rub a dub dub

My DIY projects last week left made me want to sing along with Vanilla Ice to “can’t touch this…”  Perhaps I’m biased, but I thought thought the mason jar flower vase and makeup brush holder would have Pottery Barn executives calling me to learn all my secrets.  Especially when they realized I was doing all my crafting for less than $5.

The only shortfall, as far as I could see, was that I didn’t have a matching set to make it look organized.  I decided to change that by crafting a matching toothbrush holder and soap dispenser.  Like magic, I now have the entire line of mason jar bathroom products.

The toothbrush holder is the easy-as-pie design that inspired the makeup brush holder.  To replicate, simply fill a mason jar with white sand, and stick your items inside:

The mason jar soap dispenser is a little more complicated because it takes 3 steps instead of 2.  For this, simply use a pushpin to make a hole in the top of the mason jar, and then stick a pump from another soap dispenser inside (I found a soap dispenser at the dollar store for, you guessed it, a dollar):

To add a country chic feel, spray paint mason jars to match the decor of your house, and then fill with flowers.

You can see how I made the makeup brush holder here, and instructions for the mason jar flower vase are here.

Let me know if you have any other questions, and enjoy the simple project 🙂
