'Mason Jar May' - Toothbrush Holders

Here is my last post for 'Mason Jar May'.  But, be on the lookout, I have a couple more things I made with the jars that I will be posting over the next few months or so. 

So, I think it's pretty obvious that a mason jar would make a cute rustic toothbrush holder on it's own.  But, I was inspired by my ring holder to make a toothbrush holder for the girls pink and brown bathroom. 

Again, I used supplies that I already had on-hand to make these...
pink yarn
brown yarn
hot glue


Just start wrapping the yarn around and hot gluing every so often.  You don't need a lot of glue, just a dot here and there.



When you switch colors of yarn, leave a little tail that you can the wrap over.



That's it, pretty simple project!


When I took it upstairs, I noticed the girls Dixie cups fit nicely in the jar...so....


I went back down to my art room and made a second jar to house them.


Here's a more detail picture of how to wrap and hide the tail of the yarn when switching colors.

  1. I love the versatility of a mason jar. I'm finding that pickle and salsa jars work well too. Thanks so much for sharing at Whimsy Wednedays.
