Thank you Tom’s of Maine for sponsoring this post.
Ever since watching a documentary on minimalism a few months back, I’ve been inspired to find more ways to recycle and repurpose items around our home. I have always been intimidated by the thought of Green Living because it seemed unattainable for our family. Instead of taking “going green” one step at a time, thinking about the whole picture appeared impossible. After talking with my husband about living with less and using quality items over quantity, we have decided to take a step in the right direction by reusing and recycling items that we have to items that we need when possible. When we needed a new toothbrush holder, I grabbed items that we already had around the house to create this easy DIY Mason Jar Toothbrush Holder. I’m happy to be partnering with Tom’s of Maine and to bring you this quick tutorial today and feature the Tom’s of Maine Luminous White whitening toothpaste.
- Wide mouth mason jar with the ring
- Small square of chicken wire
- Wire cutters
- Painter’s tape
- Frosted glass spray paint
I always like to start with the paint portion of projects so that they can be drying with I do other steps. Remove the lid and ring from the mason jar. Use the painter’s tape to section off the portions of the mason jar that you DO NOT want painted.
Apply the frosted glass spray paint as directed on the can. Set aside to dry thoroughly.
While the paint is drying, use the wire cutters to trim the chicken wire to fit just inside the ring from the mason jar. Do not make it too small. The chicken wire should fit into the ring without falling out. Wipe the chicken wire piece with a small alcohol pad. Fit it into the ring. If desired, you could secure it with a few dabs of hot glue, but I did not find this necessary.
Once the paint has dried, remove the painter’s tape and screw the ring onto the top of the mason jar.
In our quest to improve the quality of oral and personal care products that we purchase, we have turned to the Tom’s of Maine Luminous White Toothpaste. It is safe on enamel and for everyday use because all of the ingredients are naturally derived. It contains no artificial flavors, colors, or preservative, and it is gluten free.
