Ever feel like there is no good place to keep your toothbrush? This quick DIY project will have your toothbrush housed in style! Mason jars are a jack of all trades. They can be used for drinking, making music (playing drums), and holding toothbrushes. With a few easy steps, you will be showing off your new toothbrush holder in no time!

This piece can even include individual hoMason Jarlders for each of your family  member’s toothbrushes. Add a chicken wire, and voila, you have individual slots for multiple toothbrushes.
