Matchstick Mason Jars with Striking Lid

Between backyard barbeques and bon fires it is clear that summer is in full swing. I know that I go through matches like crazy during the warmer months. So whenever I go to someone’s house I always bring these cute jars filled with matches. This is an inexpensive project and the recipient will love them. I have a jar in my kitchen and living room.

Strike Anywhere Matches (do not buy Strike on Box matches)
Black sandpaper
Small Mason Jars

 {Strike Anywhere Matches are the only ones that will work}
 {fill a small Mason Jar with matches in a swirled fashion}
 {trace the lid on the sandpaper}
 {glue the sandpaper to the lid – you can use hot glue or elmers as well}
{end result an expensive project}
