Glass jars are so versatile! Here’s how you can make a charming utensil caddy with Mason Jars to keep your silverware or plasticware organized.

 This is a great project if you enjoy entertaining… or if you suddenly find yourself with a bunch of people to feed at the last minute. This will also come in handy when barbeque season arrives!

 Supplies: Wooden box, Martha Stewart Crafts Letter Stencils, Americana acrylic paint in Burnt Umber and Snow (Titanium) White, three wide mouth Mason Jars. Supplies from Ben Franklin Crafts and Frame Redmond.

 Paint the box with Burnt Umber. One coat works well for the rustic look.

Place the self-adhesive stencils where you’d like them and paint them white. The lettering on this box reads “Smith Kitchen Est. 2007.”

 Let the paint dry. Add the wide mouth Mason Jars and silverware… or plasticware!
