A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending BlogPodium here in Vancouver, one of the sponsors of the conference was Bernardin. I know what your thinking, what the heck was canning company doing sponsoring a lifestyle and design conference right? Well mason jars have been trending huge lately in decor, everything from vases to candle holders. This being said Bernardin has recently introduced a new line called Transform Mason, allowing you to take a simple mason jar and transform it into items such as a piggy bank or tea light holder. Not only did we get a chance to see how some of these products worked but we also were lucky enough to take home some of the kits in our swag bags from the event.
So here’s how I took one of my left over PetitePuf cotton candy jars and turned it into a soap pump for my powder room.
1. I enjoyed the cotton candy in the jar 🙂
2. Washed and removed the label from the jar.
3. Grabbed my can of Krylon spray paint and went to town painting my jar gold.
4. Assembled the transform mason lid.
5. Filled jar with soap.
6. Attached lid to jar (as you would a regular mason jar lid)
7. Placed in powder room and voila, all done!
It really was as easy as that. They have a variety of different options to change your empty mason jar into something useful around the house and they are all really as simple as swapping the lids. Painting is definitely not required but adds a little something extra to the project. I think it would make for a fun project with Hazel to paint a jar (using a brush and not spray paint of course!) and make her own little piggy bank, I think we will save that for a rainy day this winter 🙂
