You will need a Cricut Maker or Cricut Joy with a fine point blade for this Mason Jar bathroom storage DIY. That is how you print out the labels that you’ll use. 

These Mason Jars are painted and then distressed. I’ve seen similar sets on Etsy for tons of money. But, it’s easy enough to make your own for a lot less. 

These Mason Jars are painted with chalky paint. If you’re going to use them for storage in the bathroom, you will want to add a top clear coat to give them a little bit of added durability. If you’re just using them as decor, you won’t need to do that since you won’t be handling them daily.

What can you put in Mason Jars?

When it comes to this Mason Jar Bathroom Storage DIY, you can put cotton swabs, cotton balls, makeup rounds, makeup brushes, toothbrushes, and lots more in them.

And, you can easily use them to store your favorite bath salts whether you make them from scratch or buy them at the store. It really all depends on what type of lid you put on it.

If you’re wondering how to make a Mason Jar toothbrush holder, simply use a rim and not a lid around the top. Then you can add your toothbrushes without a problem.
