Sienna is always asking for ways to earn money with extra chores so Brett recently made her these rustic Give Save Spend jars to help her plan out where the money is going to go.
He used some reclaimed wood and recycled it into this little carrier:
The container has three bays, each large enough to hold an ordinary mason jar:
The only thing I had to purchase was mason jars and the little metal label holders for the front of the container:
(you can purchase file drawer label holders here)
For the lids of the bank jars, instead of trying to neatly punch through metal, I used old cereal boxes. I used the lid as a template to cut out the circles.
I cut out the slots carefully with a knife:
I spray painted the lids metallic silver to match the mason jar rings:
If that’s too much work you can also buy pre-cut coin slot lids especially made for mason jars here:
I used tiny alphabet stamps for the Give, Spend, Save labels:
The label holders are easily screwed on and the little paper labels slip right in:
The finished jars!

We are huge fans of mason jars around here. A few other cool products I’ve come across recently for converting mason jars to many uses:
A”Piggy” Bank (found here)
Pour Caps (found here)
Sip and Straw Lids (found here)
So many possibilities for the jar that’s been around for over 150 years!
