You can create a dispenser top lid for any canning jar in which you place dry goods, craft supplies, or anything in small pieces that you want to pour.  All it requires is a canning jar, the ring from the jar's two-part lid, and an empty round salt box.

Step 1: The Stuff

You need:
A canning jar with two-part lid: cap and ring
An empty round salt container with metal dispensing top.
Cutting implements

<p>I just threw away an empty salt box, and held it in my hand and looked at it for about 5 minutes trying to figure out something to do with the neat little metal spout. If only I had seen this first! </p>
You are so awesome! I love your crafts, I love potato soup and I use canning jars for storage! For people wondering what to do with all the salt, you can use it in cleaning and laundry!
That IS awesome...but that is a boatload of salt if you wanted to make more than one! Find me a way to make the little metal spouts and you win!
Awesome idea<br />
Wow.&nbsp; How come I&nbsp;never thought of that?<br /> Good job.
