All Bottled Up

You work hard. Your home office should, too. Put your desk in order with these projects from Sue Whitney and Ki Nassauer of JunkMarket.ALL BOTTLED UPForget jams and jellies. Old canning jars are a perfect place to stash paint chips, rubber bands, scissors, and more.
Drill through metal hose clamps bought at a hardware store, then attach them with screws to old pieces of decorative wood molding. (Use two screws per clamp so that they won’t twist.) Mount boards to the wall with additional screws. Attach vintage canning jars ($1 to $5) tightly with the clamps; hang some right side up and some upside down. To make it easy to snip a piece of twine or gift-wrap ribbon, punch a hole through a lid, then pull the material through. Be careful, though: If your vintage lid has a glass insert, remove the glass before aiming a drill or metal punch at it.
