Mason Jars ~ Cinnamon & Sugar Shakers

Mason Jar Cinnamon and Sugar ShakersIn our home we love breakfast…especially the sugary kind.  I know, shame on me!  We love french toast, cinnamon toast, and I love cinnamon lattes!  I wanted to make some fun and cute shakers with mason jars, and set up a little area near my coffee maker and toaster so we can just grab them and use them.  Let me show you how easy it is to take a mason jar and turn it into a shaker…

    What a great idea! Based on your experience, how well would it work {if even possible} to line up the holes with the cute pattern on the lid?

      Oh girl! I’m sure you could totally put the lids all the way on in the beginning and make them perfect. I am so random that I thought of that afterwards.

    Did the lids come pre-cut (with the “floral” pattern – I know, I know, it isn’t really floral but they look like flower petals!)? And if so, (or not?) where did you find the lids? This is an awesome idea!!
    Thanks in advcance!!
