DIY Mason Jar Tissue Holder

final 4

Tissue boxes are trying to become hip with fun and bold patterns, but to find one that truly matches your decor is sometimes hard, and they often end up sticking out like a sore thumb. Instead of buying one that’s sort of close to your color and design scheme, make one that you can reuse again and again that adds a fun touch to your bedside table, bathroom, office—or wherever you need a tissue.

These DIY mason jar tissue holders are sure to make you feel better when you’re feeling under the weather.
