Mason Jar Stationery Holder

You gotta love mason jars! I love the glass material and you can never have enough space for all the pens and pencils! My mason jars are recycled from Spaghetti sauce jars ^^ which is why I LOVE to make Spaghetti for my boyfriend (though not necessarily eat it since I end up making lo mein with Spaghetti noodles).

  6. Write the word “Thankful” using a black marker or use a printer to print out the words
    1. I used the printer because I couldn’t find my black marker 🙁

I have collected TONS of toilet paper rolls! You know, it is one of those “what if I run out of toilet paper rolls for DIY?”. So I was so glad I was able to use toilet paper rolls for this DIY project.
