So…some of you may have noticed the not so glamorous way we currently organize our spice jars when I wrote about the new shelves we installed in our kitchen -
Yup, they currently reside in an old clementine box. I kinda like it, but thought I’d take a shot at spicing things up a bit – pun intended. After doing a little online shopping, I came across this guy from World Market -
Yup, sold. I loved that there was two different sizes, 3 oz. and 7 oz., there’s just certain spices you need more of (I’m talkin’ to you cumin and oregano). For the labels, I decided to try my hand at stenciling (no, this doesn’t count as the stenciling project for my 13 in 13 list). I couldn’t find anything after visiting a couple craft stores, so I ordered Martha Stewart adhesive stencils from Amazon.com. After cleaning the jars and sticking on the letters, I gave them a good coating of glass etching cream -
I let the cream sit for about 10 minutes and then washed it off. Done! Super, super easy.
Here’s a round up of supplies for the project -
- Jars – large $3.99, small $1.99
- Martha Stewart Adhesive Stencil – $8.89
- Glass Etching Cream – $8.99
- Paint Brush – already had
I’m not willing to part with my beloved clementine box yet, maybe I can re-purpose it for something else. I’m calling it right now, clementine boxes will be the new pallet in the DIY world!
