Who is feeling very unprepared for back to school? I definitely am. In the last few weeks of summer I always like to try to organize my life and house. Once school starts back there will be no time for that and its whole lot easier to focus on the work if your surroundings are clean and organized. At least thats how I see it. In the spirit of organization, I made this pretty cool DIY Mason Jar Organizer. Its great for organizing little odds and ends.
You will need: 4 wood squares | Americana Decor Color Stain in Coral | Americana Decor Paintbrush |faux white leather | scissors | all purpose glue | 4 mason jars

Step One: Apply Americana Decor Color Stain with the paintbrush in the direction of the wood grain. If you want a more transparent color, wipe excess off with a soft cloth. If you’re looking for more opaque coverage, simply apply another coat.
Step Two: Cut strips of the faux leather that are 3/4 an inch wide and ___ inches long. If you are using a different mason jar than the one I am using you will need to measure around the jar to figure out how long to cut your strips.
Step Three: Find the center of the wood square and glue one end of the faux leather strip right side down with all purpose glue. Allow it to dry before moving on to the next step.
Step Four: Create a loop and glue the other end face side down touching the end that was already glued down.
Step Five: Slide the mason jar into the loop you just created. Repeat these steps to make three more and then hang them all on the wall!
I love how it turned out! It is perfect for storing school supplies which is what I decided to use mine for. I can also see this working great in a bathroom to keep your little beauty products organized. What would you keep in yours?
