Keep cotton balls looking pretty in these organized bathroom jars.
Recently, I updated the kids’ bathroom on a budget. We painted the cabinets, hung wallpaper, built a custom towel ladder, changed out the lighting, and added a frame around the mirror. Both of my older kids share this bathroom and we needed it to function better for them. I’ve learned that when there is an organized system in place for the kids, they are more inclined to keep it that way. Here’s how I organized bathroom jars and made them look pretty too!

Instead of cotton balls and q-tips stored in the drawers, I made them easy to access by storing them on the counter. I took three drinking jars that came with lids and just removed the straws. I wanted to add metal knobs on the lids. Lately, I have been doing so many projects with things I already have at home. These knobs were the original ones from their bathroom cabinets.
The box was perfect to hold my knobs for a quick spray painting job. I poke holes so that the screw goes through the cardboard and sits flush.
I added a thin layer of glue behind each knob. A little goes a long way so you don’t need much. I have had a lot of experience with different types of glue and the thing that surprised me the most with Aleene’s was just how quickly it dried. The glue dried within seconds and it was on super strong.
Aleene’s super glue gel works on a variety of surfaces like metal, wood, glass, leather, rubber, plastic, fabric, and ceramic. This industrial-strength gel adhesive is perfect for all sorts of crafts including indoor and outdoor projects.
I kept the color palette black and white so that the jars were consistent with their bathroom aesthetic. The knobs make it easy to take the lids off. Look how pretty!! I love it so much. You know your kids are getting older when they start using toner on their face and need cotton pads.
I love when form and function meet and this is just another fun way to add stylish organization to your space. These items are components of basic hygiene and need to be clean and easily accessible.
Think of the many ways you can do this same thing with colored pencils and other school supplies. I’m excited to use this glue for all sorts of projects. If you create something similar, I hope you’ll share it with me.
Thanks so much for reading!
