Organizers from repurposed bottles, jars

Picture from Happyclippings.com

How adorable and cute is this? As one who loves to have spaces organized and finding organizer products that are affordable this idea or project is perfect!  

We all have empty jars and bottles at one time or another and hate to just throw them out, well now we have a creative way to put those empty jars or bottles to good use. Think of all the ways you can use them to organize, in a home office, place pencils, pens, scissors or pretty flowers to brighten your desk. 
In your kitchen, place kitchen utensils, or just flowers in them, what other ideas can you come up with for the kitchen? What about putting labels on them and store food bought in bulk and place in your pantry or refrigerator. Once I got to thinking about it the ideas kept coming.

How easy are they to make? All you need are,  scrap book paper, ribbon, string and buttons. All items you may already have in the house, and you will need Mod Podge. For a tutorial video on how to use Mod Podge:

You can group them together, or separate, match your decor by color or patterns, use fabric or paper.
Gather your materials and have fun with it. Would love to hear your comments how you will use them.

Found another idea for repurposing jars

Got this idea from ApumpkinandaPrincess, she  spray painted them Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze (2-3 coats) and she glued some twine on the top. How adorable and what a creative idea!
How about decoupage a jar?

This was a spaghetti jar repurposed creatively! Twine hot glued to the jar. Use it as a vase or a organizer, you can use it in the kitchen or even as a cute table centerpiece. 

So many cute ideas, painted, twined, decoupaged, jars and bottles as organizers, centerpieces, room decor. Watch for part 2 of jars and bottles with holders.
