Add a Pour Spout to a Mason Jar

This is absolutely freakin' ingenious!  Love the reusability of mason jars but wish that you could pour dry ingredients from them easier?  Rena from The Cheese Thief added a pour spout to a jar, which she then filled with Thai fried garlic.  (She also shares her mother's recipe for the garlic, and I want to make some and put it on everything!)  It would also be great for holding sugar at your coffee station, or even in the craft room for things like small beads.  [how to add a pour spout to a mason jar]

Project estimate:

  • Mason jar, on hand
  • Empty salt container, on hand
  • Paper, on hand

Total:  Free

    I had to laugh. I made one of these for my mom for Mother’s Day in Bluebirds ca 1961!!! Talk about a vintage craft. I think mine had flowery stickers on the side though.

    This would be so great for very small beads too! Use the smaller size jelly jars and then they would stack on top of each other!

    Of Course at the rate I use salt I’d have one jar every 2 years! Once I had a box of salt for 10 years! Salt really does not loose it’s saltiness!
