Altering your own spice jars is a great way to creatively organize your herbs and spices. The culinary herbs and spices in my kitchen were looking a little messy with various brands in various sized bottles, so a little reorganization and revamping was in order.
On one of my recent thrift store outings, this mini spice jar cupboard caught my eye. Originally, it was painted a dark green so I decided to give it some new life with a coat of white paint. I used Eco Green Crafts white acrylic paint. On the top of the cupboard, I attached a piece of patterned paper from the Printery collection to complement the tops of the jars where I had also incorporated some of the papers.
To alter the jars I cut out circles from the Printery collection. I stamped various spice names onto the writer’s tape using the typewriter alphabet clear stamps and black StazOn Ink. I then attached the tape to each circle (edges trimmed) and then glued the circles to the top of each jar lid. Since I have a fair amount of spices, I decided to do a few extra jars that I will keep on my countertop next to the mini cupboard. Instead of altering those lids, I decided to apply the same technique to the glass itself!
