Is your spice drawer a wreck? Follow along as I show you how to create a mason jar spice organizer that will leave you smiling every time you are in the kitchen. This easy project is perfect for those that want to get their kitchen organized this spring.
- Mini 4 oz mason jars
- Chalkboard paper stack
- Sizzix with circle die or scissors
- Glue Dots®
- David Tutera chalk pens
I really needed to fix that in order to find anything. I started with the chalkboard paper stack and chose blue for the tops of my jars. I used a Sizzix and a circle die close to the size of the top of my jars. I cut several circles from the blue chalkboard sheets. You can also trace the lid onto the paper and use scissors to cut out circles. The edges of your circles will not be visible so any method you choose will work. Then, just add your spices to the jars and top with the lid and chalkboard circle. Nothing else is needed as the two part lids will hold the chalkboard circles in place perfectly.
Now for the best part of my mason jar spice organizer — the drawer liner! Use another color from the chalkboard paper stack and line your drawer. I had to use two pieces cut to size and overlapped them as shown. I used the Glue Dots to stick the two pieces together so they would not move or shift.
Then trace the top of your mini mason jar all over the chalkboard paper as shown. This is the layout of how your jars will be in the drawer. I tested out the jars in the drawer before marking my spice organizer paper. However, if you mess up, remember that it is a chalk marker and will erase with just a damp cloth.
It took me two drawers of mini mason jars, but all of my spices are organized and ready for use. Please note that the salt and pepper grinder in the back are extras and keep the mason jars from shifting as the drawer is open and closed. There is not enough room for another row of jars. I also left room for expansion in the other drawer with some empty mason jars complete with chalkboard paper lids. You can change up the order easily as well if you get another “B” spice by just erasing all of the names from the chalkboard liner and writing them back in. Chalkboard makes organization super easy.
