I have had this project on my To-Do List for almost a year now…finally broke down and got it done! A simple craft to organize your spice cabinet.

Supplies Needed:

  • Mason Jars (I purchased mine at AC Moore’s but you can up-cycle old ones too!)
  • Chalkboard Paint (I went with Martha Stewart Crafts Multi-Surface Chalkboard Acrylic Craft Paint)
  • Goof-Off (To remove the price labels and adhesive off of the jars)
  • Paintbrush
  • Chalk

To start, disassemble the lids from the jars, remove the price labels from the lids using Goof-Off or another adhesive remover, and wash the jars with a mild dish soap.

Paint the lids of the mason jars. I decided to only paint the inner part of the lids and leave the outer rings silver.

1st step of spice jars

I had to do a few layers of the paint to get the desired thickness, letting each layer dry between. Next allow the paint to completely dry, recommended 24 hours of curing time.

Write with chalk to label the jar lids, add spices, and enjoy!
