DIY Organizers Using Recycled Materials

deskdiys_edited-1Hey everyone, Laurel from A Bubbly Life Blog back with another DIY for ya! April is Earth month, so for this month’s DIY I decided to use a favorite supply of mine that anyone has in their home and you can reuse instead of throwing away- glass jars!  Clean out your salsa jars after you are done with them and make some much needed pen/paintbrush/washi tape/glittered clothespins holders!  I am a glass jar hoarder- I love to keep them and use them around the house for vases, organizers and more.  For this DIY, I use a gold metallic washi tape to design the plain glass bottles!


  • Washi Tape
  • Scissors
  • Glass jars


  • Soak jars in a soapy warm water bath for a few hours.  Most of the labels will come off with an easy pull, some need more scrubbing to get rid of all the sticker residue.
  • Make your washi tape design!  For stripes, I wrapped the tape around the bottle.  For a geometric look, cut triangles out of the washi tape and apply.
  • Washi tape comes in every pattern, color imaginable, so pick your favorites and decorate!

Happy Earth Month, everyone!washitapedesk
