The key to this project? Utilizing the metal spout that comes with each and every salt container. Bet you didn’t know that the metal spout can be reused, so that you can create a brand new Mason jar lid. From there, you can construct a Mason jar with a salt spout, an item that will certainly have many different uses inside of your kitchen.
So what do you need in order to complete this project? Simply grab your old salt container, a sharpened knife, a Mason jar and a new lid for the jar itself and you are off and running.
To get started, take the sharpened knife (a box cutter will also do the trick quite nicely) and slice the top off of your chosen salt container. For further instructions, take a moment to watch the video below and follow along. Visual instructions are often necessary when dealing with projects of this nature.
After you have completed this step of the project, lay your Mason face down, so that it is placed alongside of the salt container’s lid. Trace yourself a new top, cut it out and make sure it fits onto the lid of the jar.
Now that wasn’t so hard, now was it? Thanks to this handy DIY project, you now possess the ability to pour stuff out of the Mason jar, without having to go through the rigmarole of unscrewing the lid each time.
