DIY Project: Easy-To-Label Spice Jars

My spice cabinet is currently bursting at the seams and ready for some reorganization, so this storage idea from Adrianna at A Cozy Kitchen is mighty appealing. The best part: she turned the jar lids into mini chalkboards, so the jars can be used for any number of spices.

The 5-ounce glass jars above are from The Container Store and have mouths wide enough to fit a tablespoon, for easier measuring. (Mason jars would also work for larger amounts of spices.) The lids are painted with a couple coats of chalkboard paint and labeled with chalk, so it would be a snap to relabel a jar, which is important if, like me, you are prone to buying new spices on a whim.

This system is ideal for those who store their spices in a drawer, but I think it'll also work for my spice cupboard. I don't need a whole can of chalkboard paint, so I'm going to experiment with using chalkboard contact paper and a circle punch to make stick-on chalkboard labels.
