recycle baby food jars


Liam's old baby food jars + spray paint (any colour you desire) + paint marker (any colour you desire) = new spice jars!

I washed Liam's old baby food jars, the label came off easily during wash. I then removed the stubborn label glue that was stuck on the glass with some nail polish remover. Spray painted the lids with black chalkboard paint. (I was planning on writing the spice contents in chalk but I couldn't find chalk with a small enough tip. Even sharpening the chalk did not work.) Therefore I purchased this Sharpie Paint Opaque Marker and that did the trick.
These jars fit perfectly in my spice drawer, and I can fit much more jars than my original jars. The jars are also able to contain a bigger amount of spice than my old ones.
And yes, my spices are in alphabetical order :)
