DIY Mason Jar Coffee Container

My husband is an avid coffee drinker. It's an every single day kind of thing. His coffee habits have evolved from just plain ole coffee to a more adventurous type of brew. Iced coffee, frozen coffee, hot coffee, cold coffee, french vanilla, caramel, mocha, you name it he tries it. But, our coffee container was an old plastic Christmas container that we had out year round. It's served it's time and we needed to move on from it. Shopping around I found tons of amazing jars that would fit perfectly in to our kitchen, but the prices didn't fit into our wallet. So, with a bit of creativity and less then $5.00, I create this mason jar container in about an hour. The longest part was waiting for the paint to dry.

What you need:
  • Large mason jar
  • Decorated drawer knob
  • Craft paint
  • Paint brush
  • Drill with drill bit size to drawer knob 

How to Make:
1. Remove lid from jar and paint using craft paint and paint brush. Let dry completely. I made mine a little streaky to give a more vintage, worn feel.
2. Once dry, mark center of lid with a small dot using a pencil.
3. Place lid back onto the jar.
4. Using the drill, drill into the lid at the point marked with a pencil.

5. Attach your drawer knob into the hole and secure and tighten.

6. Fill with your favorite coffee grounds.

If you don't drink coffee, no worries! This jar works perfectly for sugar, flour, and any items you need stored. Plus, it looks fantastic on our kitchen counter.
