Don't throw that empty salt container away. You can remove the top with the spout and cut it down to fit inside a mason jar ring! Now you can put all kind of things in the jar and easily pour out the amount you want.
Total Time: 10 minutes
- salt container with spout
- mason jar
- mason jar ring
- box knife
- Using a box knife, carefully cut the top off the salt container.
- Trace around the top of the mason jar with a pencil.
- Using the knife (or scissors), cut out the traced circle. Trim to fit, if necessary.
- Put the spout piece on top of the jar and screw on the mason jar ring. Now fill it with whatever you want. (For example: bulk salt, sugar, bulk seasonings, glitter, beads, etc.)
When finished with an empty cardboard salt container, cut the whole round top piece off and measure to fit a canning jar ring. Trace and cut with the flat part with scissors to fit a pint canning jar. Fill the jar with sugar, then cut a second one from a second empty salt container for non-dairy coffee creamer. The pour spouts make for easy access to your sugar and creamer.
*If desired, half pint jars can be used instead of pint jars.
