Place a wooden board on the wall and secure the jars of your choice on it. They can all be identical or you can even mix and match sizes and shapes. Hold them into place with some wire or nails or hose clamps.

You can use them for storing your makeup!

2. Reuse your jars and place them on a tray.

If you have an extra flat surface, then place an aged wooden board or a tray on it and add different sized bottles. For example, you can use them to store cotton balls, swabs, and whatever else you can think of.

If you need more storage space, then opt for a staggered tray. Thus, you can arrange bottles on the top and perhaps some rolled hand towels on the bottom.
