Mason jars are not just for canning anymore. They have so many possibilities for the jars. These jars are perfect for preserving food and memories. Containers like these come in different sizes. Each size determines what the purpose of the jar is.
Crates are storage containers for many products. They come in various sizes, and styles. Crates are not just made out of wood, they can be made out of plastic. Plastic crates do not require upkeep like wooden crates would. The only upkeep a wooden crate would require is sanding. The sanding would keep the wood from splitting. The splitting of wood can cause splinters.
These type of storage containers allow items to be stored and kept organized. They come in different sizes. Each crate contains different pockets or sections. Mason jars come in different sizes as well. For this project, depending on what you are wanting to store will determine the size of the jar. The dividing sections will determine how many jars will be needed.
The mason jars will fit neatly in each one of the section of the crate. If there is four sections, than four jars will be needed. This crate project would be perfect for silverware, desk organization, kitchen organization and etc. The options are unlimited. There is so many ways this mason jar crate can be used for.
Some crates do not come with an attached handle. For this project, a handle would be a great addition. The purpose of the handle will allow the crate to be transported with much ease. A handle can be made from different materials such as ribbon or wire. Whether ribbon or wire is decided it can easily attached to the crate. A staple gun or a hot glue gun can attach the ribbon or wire to the box. If a plastic crate is chosen, a staple gun would not be recommended for this project.
These crates can be decorated to match any décor in the home. For example, a wooden crate can be stained to look distressed. The distressed look gives the mason jar crate an antique appearance. A white wash is an antique stain that gives any piece a beautiful finish. There are so many different types of stain products on the market. They come in so many diverse colors. For example, the products include, light, dark, medium dark, and etc. There is no right or wrong way to deciding on the right choice of stain.
This project is very simple to make. The plastic or wooden crate is perfect for this project. The choice is yours. These crates can be decorated with cute additions. For example, on the side of the crate an American flag can be added. This theme would be perfect for a 4th of July occasion. This project can be made in an afternoon time frame.
