I love to recycle and our family recycles most everything we can.  In our area though there is no place for recycling glass and we do purchase a lot of products in glass jars and bottles.  I’m always looking for great ideas to Repurpose and Reuse Glass Jars and love the look of my new storage jar!  It was easy to make and has so many potential uses!

Repurpose and Reuse Glass Jars for Pretty Storage - More With Less Today - Upcycle an Old Glass Jar from the Kitchen into a Beautiful Storage Jar

Repurpose and Reuse Glass Jars for Pretty Storage

Supplies:

  • old glass jar with metal lid
  • cabinet knob
  • spray paint
  • all purpose adhesive – make sure it will work on metal

Re-purpose and Reuse Glass Jars for Pretty Storage

Instructions:

Clean and rinse the jar and remove the label if it has one.

Clean the lid well and dry it completely.

Using a spray paint suitable for metal surfaces spray the lid of the jar.  Choose a metal finish or a fun color that works well with your decor.  Allow the paint to dry completely and spray the lid a second time.  Again, allow it to dry completely.

When the lid is totally dry use a small amount of adhesive to attach the cabinet knob to the painted lid.  You can find great cabinet knobs at thrift shops, home stores, flea markets and more.  Some kitchen and bath showrooms will give away outdated samples of cabinet hardware.  This is a great way to find fun and unique pieces!

Allow the adhesive to set completely before filling your jar with great things!  I filled my jar with pasta and placed it on my counter near my glass and black canisters.  It’s a great look in the kitchen but would be fun in a bathroom, bedroom, craft room or anywhere!

I’ve seen these same types of repurposed jars attached to candle holder bases as a pedestal.  There are so many things you could do with these jars rather than throw them away!
