Desk Organizer Diy Using What You Already Have In The House

I’ve been seeing a lot of gold office supplies lately that look so gorgeous. It’s so tempting to indulge but I have already set my desk theme to white and turquoise color accents. But I figured I can repurpose containers I have to make a gold desk organizer and give it to a friend.

I have several empty glass jars and a clear plastic container of Ferrero Rocher which seemed a great candidate for this diy and of course a jar of gold glitter.

But oh those gold office supplies…dreaming of them…okay, I’m awake now and I gotta stick to a budget here so I’ll just make an easy and budget friendly repurposed diy instead.

These were the glass jars and plastic container I used.

First, clean the glass jars thoroughly and remove the label. Use a painter’s tape to wrap and tape over the containers. You can make any pattern you like.

For the other glass jar, I made a sort of checkered pattern with the tape and with the smaller jar I made square shapes on all sides.

Once you have placed the tape, apply a generous amount of Mod podge on the open areas. You can place some plastic food wrap on the table to protect it from the podge splatters.

Time to add some gold sparkle


Sprinkle gold glitter on the wet Mod Podge and allow it to dry.

When the Mod Podge is dry, gently remove the tape.

Now, apply Mod Podge on top of the gold glitter and all through out the jar and plastic container.

Get some gold washi tape and wrap it around the glass jar lid.

You just have to wait for it to dry completely and you now have a gold sparkly desk organizer.

I meant to give this to a friend but when my daughter saw these, she claimed it hers so fast. That’s why diy is fun, you can make somebody else’s day sparkle!
