Tissue Mason Jar

I saw this great idea while perusing Pinterest the other day.  When I saw the pin, my eyes couldn’t help but scan my studio to the pretty silver mason jar I got from a recent wedding that I attended.  I knew I took that jar for a reason!

This summer, I went to a beautiful wedding of a friend’s daughter.  The bride used mason jars to make some really cute center pieces for the reception.  After the celebrating was over, I was there helping with clean up and she told me I could have one of her jars.  I couldn’t resist.

Now a couple of months later, I have found the perfect use for the jar.  It was a very quick and simple project, because the jar was already painted.  My jar happens to be painted with mirror paint, but I think the next few that I make, I will use chalk paint and distress them a little.

These are the supplies needed:  Mason jar, painted or not, tissue, piece of cardboard, decorative paper, scissors, pencil, and a razor blade.

I traced around the jar lid ring with it centered on one of the smaller circles from my decorative paper.  I did the same with the carboard piece.  Cut out the two circles and place them together.  You can glue them, but I didn’t.  Then I cut an X in the center of the cardboard/paper circle while held together.  After cutting, place the circles into the ring of the lid.  Roll a small amount of tissue to fit into the jar with a piece of tissue pulling up from the center.  Don’t use too many or it will be too tight and the tissue will just tear when you pull it out.

I put my finished tissue holder on my bedroom nightstand.  It looks much sweeter than a cardboard box of tissues!  Don’t you think?

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy project.

Also, I realize I have not posted since last December.  I hope to remedy that in the next few days and weeks with some pictures of the progress of our home’s remodel.  It looks a LOT different now.
