SIMPLE DIY SPICE JARS

I've always wanted matching spice jars that look all nice together instead of a bunch of mismatched jars pushed back into a cabinet. But I didn't really want to spend that much money on...spice jars. So I found a few supplies and came up with these. They're perfectly simple and add a lot to our cute, little kitchen. 
I used these spice jars and the Avery labels pictured above. It's the kind that you can download a template to use with so you can print on them nice and easy. 
From there I printed out all my spices and cut them down into rectangles so they fit just right on the jar. I realize I could have just used rectangle labels...but I couldn't find them in the kraft paper color. I also really like how the two rounded sides look. We hung up two of these picture ledges to put the jars on for easy access and display. It's more open that a spice rack and easier to keep clean.
And that's it! This is one of my favorite projects I've done so far in our new home. I love quick, simple home projects with a big effect. Do any of you have pretty spice jars or a neat way to organize your spices?

  1. Ooh, I like this! I know what you mean, I've seen spice racks that are into the hundreds...seriously?! We have a generic spice rack, so I just put washi tape on them and hand wrote the names.
