Before I get started on today’s Mason Jar Sugar Dispenser DIY tutorial I just have to share a few pictures from this last weekend.
Roger hadn’t been up to visit our family since his dental mission trip to Guatemala so we headed up to Tennessee on Friday and spent the weekend with mine and his family – its nice having both of our families living in the same area.
Baby Val loves herself some corn!
Saturday evening we headed up to Roger’s parents house and had hamburgers – vegetarian of course – corn on the cob, and other yummy food. The weather is finally getting warm and was perfect for eating outdoors and enjoying good company.
Baby Amelia shares her love and I shared my cupcake!
This was the last family gathering before the highly anticipated birth of baby Willow! I now have 3 nephews and 6 nieces! Congratulations Kelly on the birth of your beautiful baby girl!
The night ended with fireworks – a Miller family tradition the little ones love – and a look down memory lane.
Now on to the project!
So a little while ago I realized my Mason Jar Sugar Dispenser had disappeared during our move and for some reason I had never made another. So I decided to make another one last week, but then I realized I had never shared with you how I made my sugar dispenser! So to make amends I made this one even more cute than the last and maybe you will forgive my forgetfulness on sharing this super simple and super useful DIY Mason Jar Sugar Dispenser.
What you’ll need:
New or used Mason Jar with lid
Emptied salt container – yes I did empty my Morton Salt just for this project!
Scrapbook paper – I used Be Mine Paper Stack
(affiliate links above)
First, cut off the top of the emptied salt container. Then trace the mason jar lid over the top of the salt container and cut out the new lid.
Then trace the mason jar lid on a piece of scrapbook paper and cut it out as well.
Open the dispenser and place the new lid on top of the cut out scrapbook paper and trace the inside. Using the x-acto knife cut the hole to size so that it will fit on top of the new lid.
After you have a large enough hole that will allow the dispenser to open and close properly glue the scrapbook paper to the top of the lid.
Fill the mason jar with sugar and secure the new lid onto your Mason Jar Sugar Dispenser!
So simple, yet so practical!
