Happy Tuesday, friends! Do you remember a few weeks ago I shared how I made over our spice drawer with new jars and labels? (If not you can get all of the details here: Spice Jars with Labels! ) But for a more affordable option come check out this idea on how to make your own spice jars!
I’ve wanted to organize our spice drawer for some time. Mainly because it was a mish-mash of different size and shaped jars and it was difficult to find them in the drawer. So, I ordered new spice jars on Amazon that came with pre-printed labels. (I ended up ordering two sets of 25 jars and labels because I needed a total of 38 jars for my particular drawer.) This is how it looked when I finished! So neat, organized and alphabetized! Woo-Hoo!
I recycled the majority of the old spice jars but I noticed I had 12 of the round spice jars from Spice Island that all matched. A light bulb went off and I decided to make some spice jars for my younger son with them! They are the same 4 ounce size as the ones I purchased from Amazon, only round.
I peeled off the original labels and used Goo-Gone to remove any of the remaining sticky residue. Then I washed them in the dishwasher on high, along with the lids. Now they are sparkly clean!
Since I had a second set of labels from my Amazon order, I used these to label the round spice jars. I searched for the 12 most used spices and used these for the jars. I’m sure my son has these same spices so I’ll leave it up to him to fill them. And if he decides he likes the look, he can collect his own Spice Island jars and use the rest of the labels to expand his spice collection.
For zero dollars I made twelve new spice jars with cohesive (and waterproof) labels!
If you’d like to try this yourself, be sure to check out the many online options for pre-printed labels available on Amazon or Etsy. For less than $10 you can totally revamp your own spice drawer! Easy-peasy!
Well, I hope you like this idea! I love it when I come up with something that will be pretty and save money at the same time! Of course you can do this with the square jars too, especially if you are putting them in a drawer like mine and want the labels to stay face up. Now I’ve got my thinking cap on and will try to think of more ways to organize our kitchen and pantry. Once I do, I’ll be sure to share! Meanwhile, I hope you have a fabulous week! xoxo Dell
