Matchbox Jar

Pin It
One of my favorite crafting blogs is Craftaholics Anonymous. She is a crafting genius! When I came across her idea for a matchbox made out of a mason jar I knew I had to try it out.

I gathered up my supplies.

I measured the sand paper, cut it out, and glued it to the jar lid.

I tried striking one of the matches.

It was a no go. My sand paper was to fine so I just glued the side of the matchbox on top of the sandpaper.


I have a garden tub that is my daily Momma time out. I keep the matches next to the tub and sometimes they get damp which ruins them. This is the perfect solution and it's pretty to boot!

  2. We finished a homemade product recently that had come in a mason jar and I was trying to figure out something crafty to do with it. This is a good idea.

  5. The jar is certainly prettier than the box!

  6. That would be great by our fire pit. We will have to try this. Thanks for sharing!

  7. What a great idea! Plus, so much safer than keeping the matches in those little boxes. Love useful ideas like that that!
