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

Supplies:

  • salt container with spout
  • mason jar
  • mason jar ring
  • box knife

Steps:

  1. Using a box knife, carefully cut the top off the salt container.
  2. Trace around the top of the mason jar with a pencil.

  4. Using the knife (or scissors), cut out the traced circle. Trim to fit, if necessary.
  5. 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.
