Doing crafts doesn’t have to be a hard or involved process.
And sometimes crafts can require you to do online shopping for supplies.
That’s what I love about these jars.
Certainly you don’t HAVE to shop online, but I take any chance I can get for an excuse to hit that “add to cart” button.
With these super simple DIY jars I decided that I needed to quell my Anthropologie obsession. Now most things on the Anthro site are out of my price range, so I was happy to find these sweet door knobs that were more in my budget.
But honestly, you don’t have to go shopping for any special knobs, you could certainly run down to Home Depot and get you knob on.
Here’s all you ‘ll need to make these adorable jars…
- a jar
- a door knob
- a hand drill or drill press
- wire cutters, optional*
Get your jar ready…you can use any size, any style you want.
Now, if you’re handy with tools go ahead and drill a small hole in the top. I am not, so I got my husband involved to do this part.
He drilled a hole about the size of the screw on the knob.
The knobs that I used had long screws that I wanted a little shorter, so I borrowed a wire cutter from my husband and cut the screw down…
Then I stuck the screw into the lid and tightened on with a small “nut” that came with the knob.
Use them in your kitchen, bathroom…wherever.
Of course I filled mine with treats.
