Decorative glass jars are all the rage. Walk through any craft store or department store and you will see what I mean. I love glass jars for storage because you can see what is inside them. I also love glass jars for decorating because you can fill them with your items in your color scheme.
Most of the decorative glass jars and bottles I find have a very ordinary cork stopper for a top or…no top at all. In the past, I have painted the cork stoppers to add a little interest but…earlier this month…at the Haven Conference in Atlanta, I stopped by the Liberty Hardware booth where they were sharing project ideas from the Apron Blog at Home Depot that you could make with their beautiful hardware. One project they were sharing was taking cabinet hardware and attaching it to the existing cork stoppers or placing it in wine corks to make decorative bottle stoppers.
I loved this idea so much…I had to share it with you.
As you read this tutorial, consider all of the possibilities that can be created from this simple concept. I promise…it’s endless. Think outside of your own home decor… Think about all of the gift-giving options!

Glass jars Supplies:
- Assorted glass jars and/or bottles with or without stoppers
- Cabinet Knobs (These would be stunning)
- Wine Corks (you will only need these if your bottles don’t come with a stopper)
- Drill and small drill bit
Instructions for Glass Jars:
1) Soak cork stoppers or wine corks in water. Soaking the corks in water for 20 minutes before drilling the holes for the hardware will keep them from splitting.
2) Drill a hole in stopper. Using a small drill bit, drill a hole just big enough to hold the hardware screw.
3) Attach the decorative cabinet knob to the cork. Screw the cabinet knob onto the end of the exposed screw in the cork.
4) Place the cork back on the top of the decorative glass jar.
I know this decorative glass jar project seems super simple but it has so much creative potential. Warning: Once you open your mind to all of the options…you will find yourself searching out all of amazing cabinet knobs available on the market these days.
Here are a couple of my favorite ways to use this project:
1) Taking vintage wine corks and assorted decorative glass knobs and making beautiful wine stoppers.
2) Filling decorative glass jars with bath salts and adding beautiful knobs to the corks stopper with a raffia ribbon.
