mason jar matches

i like things to look pretty and organized. right now, that is NOT my life. however, i did do one small thing this week that made me feel much better.
I took this match box from the hall bathroom (dont ask why its in there (hint: house full of boys) or why it looks like a rat has chewed on it....)

and I took out the matches, stuck them in this beautiful old jar

then cut off the strike strip and added it to the back of the jar with glue dots. (they work well!)

and voila! it works and look sooo much better.

I recently saw this done with a basic canning jar and where you have the two part lid, they place a piece of sand paper in the inner lid to strike the match with!
