Upcycled DIY Spice jars

Upcycled DIY Spice jars

Who wouldn't want their kitchen to be tidy and ideally also sustainable?  Today, we’re going to show you how to keep your spice collection tidy and store everything sustainably with an upcycling project. Use the Lumocolor chalk marker to beautifully label or paint your storage jars. The great thing is: Once they're empty, you can simply wash off your lettering, rinse and re-label the glass – it doesn't get any more sustainable than this.

Step-by-step tutorial

Print out the template. First shade the back of the lettering template with a soft pencil.

Now place the template with the front side on the blackboard foil or on the self-adhesive chalk paper and write down whichever words you need from the template with the pencil. The harder you press, the clearer the result.

Then cut out the individual letters.

Now write down the imprinted words on the blackboard film with the Lumocolor chalk marker.

Then prepare the cleaned ceramic pots and remove the foil from the back of the blackboard foil.

Place the labels in the middle of the ceramic pot and press them down firmly.

Done! Now you can put herbs, spices or other food in the jars and place them in your kitchen.
