DIY String Storage Jar

I'm always on the look out for clever and easy ways to keep all
my crafty notions neat and tidy. While browsing through last month's
issue of Ideal Home magazine I spotted this string storage jar.
I really liked the idea of using a jar to keep strings, ribbons, bakers'
twines and even yarn. But this one was rather expensive so I thought
of making my own cost free version. After all it's really just
a jar with a hole in the lid.

It was easy peasy even when I had to make the hole the old
fashioned way--with a hammer and nail.

Ta dah! A nice little string dispenser/holder/storage jar.
So simple and works great.

I'm keeping it plain like this but I might pretty it up with
a nice sticky label or some washi tapes later.

Thanks for reading. Hope you're having a happy Sunday!


  1. Great idea! And Bonne Maman jars are so stylishly shaped with the bonus of their gingham lid. Love your new banner with the pocket dollies!

  2. Well done Marion - great but simple idea. I too love the Bonne Maman jars

  3. What a great idea Marion! I love the gingham lid.

  4. That's a great idea. I love those Bonne Maman jars, I always save them. I recently saw a lovely Orla Kiely string dispenser, which was essentially a pretty tin with a hole in it, for £15!!! Yours is much better value for money! x
