Upcycled Bathroom Jars Craft Tutorial

Figuring out a beautiful way to organize my bathroom necessities has been on my to do list for a long time. Our favorite toothpaste, Tom’s of Maine® Luminous White™ Toothpaste Clean Mint (no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives and gluten free!), is made up of biodegradable ingredients and inspired this upcycled tutorial. Being as eco-friendly as possible is really important to my family, so we can do our small part for the earth. Save your used jars for this project, you’ll need various sizes depending on what you will be filling them with. Remove all the labels and wash them well. Use a little chalk paint and some pretty knobs to decorate them. You can display them on a cake stand on the bathroom counter. Such a pretty and earth friendly way to organize the bathroom!

Step 1: Head to Walmart and grab your supplies. Don’t forget to pick up a tube of Tom’s of Maine toothpaste. Love that this toothpaste is safe on enamel and safe for everyday use. Luminous White™ is Tom’s of Maine’s most advanced whitening toothpaste ever, leaving our teeth pearly white!

Step 2: Clean the jars and remove any labels. Save the lids! Tip: Slather a layer of peanut butter over sticky labels and let it sit overnight before washing it off. The label will come off much easier.

Step 3: Paint the tops of the lids using white chalk paint (or your color of choice).

Step 4: Use super glue (E600 works great) to secure the crystal knobs to the middle of the lids, as shown below. Allow to dry overnight.
