Goodies to fill your jars
Don’t throw those spaghetti and pickle jars away!! Reuse them and make them into something pretty to store stuff in. 🙂
First, remove the jar lid and drill a hole in the center.
Then, spray paint your lid any color you like. I used Antique Bronze by Krylon.
After your paint has dried place your knob into the hole. The screw on my knobs were really long so I had my husband use one of his fancy tools to cut it down so it didn’t hang into whatever I had in the jar. 🙂
Here are the knobs I chose.
Now, I have to label everything when I get the chance! I LOVE labels! So these poor jars were going to have to get labels too. I decided to use chalkboard paint so that I could change the label whenever I changed what was inside. This is what I like to use:
To make my label area I used blue painting tape and taped off a square on the side of the jar.
Using a foam brush I then filled it in with the black paint.
I had to use about three layers of the chalkboard paint before it became opaque. Once it is dry just remove the tape and your ready to LABEL!!
I think these jars turned out really cute and can’t wait to have them in my kitchen to use everyday! I hope that you are inspired to make something pretty out of your old pickle jars too. 🙂 Have a good night!
