Reuse Those Jars
I've been looking at my empty mayo jars for awhile now and finally, it occurred to me - perfect for storing rice!
If you buy your rice in a bag, you know pouring it out can be tricky - yes, I've dumped it on the counter a few times and then there's the issue of the bag sitting on the shelf. A 30 oz. mayo jar is the perfect solution. It holds a lot of rice, is a great fit for your hand, and the lid makes a great seal. The only drawback? It's not very pretty.
The easy solution is scrapbook paper. A 12" x 3" strip fits perfectly around the jar. I even used the adhesive that was leftover from removing the original label. It doesn't get any easier than that!
To 'pretty-it-up' a little more, I wrapped some Baker's Twine around the jar and added a button.
I punched a 2&1/2" circle for the lid and glued it on. The jar was done! Prettied-up enough, but not too much that it makes it difficult to handle.
The jars could be used for lots of other pantry staples and lined up on a shelf, don't you think? So, tell me, what have you reused or repurposed recently? I'd love to hear your ideas.
Have a great week, everyone and thanks for stopping by the Cottage.
