Mason Jar Match Dispenser

This Mason jar match dispenser is sturdier than those cardboard boxes they come in. You could even decorate the jar to disguise what's inside.




  1. Slide the cover off of the match box and flatten it out. Use the lid as a template, centered over the striker section of the box, and trace around it. Then cut it out. Note: Go ahead and cut out additional striker lids before disposing of the box.
  2. On the back side, draw a small square for dispensing the matches. Use a craft knife to cut it out.
  3. Fill the jar with matches.
  4. Insert the striker piece into the lid ring and screw it onto the jar.
  5. Gently shake the jar to dispense a match and use the striker lid to light it.

I make a mason jar salt shaker in the same fashion where you cut the top of the salt box out to fit the Mason jar lid and then fill the Mason jar with salt and leaving this spout on the top of the salt box you can use the spout to pour salt.

Great idea! I just came across a plastic bag of matches I have had for awhile but never liked the bag they were in. The jar works perfectly.

That's very clever! Unless one uses these matches all the time, and I don't, I would just leave the top solid to protect them from humidity. I have some matches for emergency purposes, but seldom use them. This is a nice idea though, and you got my vote!
