How to Store Planner Pens: Cookie Jar Makeover

- White chalk paint
- Drill/ 3-16” drill bit
- Thick wood board
Just some advice: you can find cookie jars like the one we used here at thrift stores, garage sales, and possibly even secondhand or vintage shops. Any design similar to the one we used will work!
- Remove the top from your glass jar and wash/dry each piece.
- When your top has dried completely, paint the top and sides with your white chalk paint and let dry.
- Paint a second coat and let dry.
- Place a thick piece of wood under your lid and carefully drill a hole in the center with your drill and 3-16” drill bit.
- Lightly sand and distress the top with a piece of sandpaper.
- Screw the new knob on with your hands.
- Fill up with pens, pencils, cookies, treats, or whatever you’d like.
