Huckleberry Love: Mason Jar Toothbrush Holder

Hi, Y'all! 

It's Jill from Huckleberry Love. I am very excited to be posting again at From G2B! You may recognize me from my last contributor post: DIY Hoop Art. Anyways, I'm finally finished with Miss Emeline's room and decided to work on a few small projects around the house before we tackle our kitchen. Today I'm sharing these awesome mason jar toothbrush holders.

They took less than 15 minutes to make and I absolutely love the look! They also double as cotton ball/q-tip holders. For now we'll keep the kid's toothbrushes in them... because we all know how long q-tips and cotton balls would last with a 4, 3, and 2 year old with sticky fingers  creative ideas.

To make these, we took a plank from a pallet and trimmed it to be 14 inches long. For the holders, my husband picked up some pipe clamps that were large enough to hold the medium sized mason jars. Because I didn't want to see the hanging hardware, and also wanted it to be very sturdy (being that it holds glass and kids will tug on it), we screwed them right into the wall with anchors.

The screws anchor the pallet to the wall, while the pipe clamps fit on like make-shift washers. The screw goes into the pipe clamp, through the pallet and into the wall anchor.

We hung the mason jars by the collar with the pipe clamps. All it took was a little bit of tightening with a screw driver. We clipped the excess pipe clamp and filed it down for a rounded edge.

And here they are, ta-dah!

Maybe one day they will serve a more decorative purpose, but for now, toothbrush holder it is!
