Mason Jar Upcycle

What's up with the popularity of Mason Jars?  
You can't help but love them.  
These jars are so beautiful in their own quirky way.  

It was high time to put one to the test to help me get organized.
I started my project with this vintage notepad board 
that I picked up at the flea market.  
I painted both the board and a pint-size Mason jar with ASCP Old White, 
then lightly distressed both pieces.

Using a plumber's clamp, I attached the jar to the wood.  
I've seen this done a lot on Pinterest, and it was so easy.
I painted the jar lid red for a pop of color 
(and because Valentine's Day is soon).  

Then added rub-on transfers and attached a mini red photo holder.
The most difficult part of this project is where to hang it!

In the laundry room?

In the kitchen?

Or in my craft room?
No matter where it ends up, it will come in handy for office supplies.
I might just also use it for fresh flowers come spring.

Yesterday, I purchased several more plumber's clamps, 
and I have a few more ideas brewing 
with the other Mason jars just waiting to be upcycled.
