DIY Spice Display

I don't know about you guys but looking at all my different size spice jars makes me go nutso. I don't want them out on the counter (much to David's dismay) and we used to have them in a drawer - which was another inconvenience not to mention mess. So I saw this pin on Pinterest and decided I would give it a try. 

I ordered these tubes off of Etsy and decided to fill them up with the 20 spices we use the most. When they arrived they were a little skinnier than I imagined. Originally I wanted to display them in a box like the original pin but I couldn't find a rustic one that would fit them. So I went shopping around my house and found an old sorter I had for mail and made it work. 

I also labeled all the spices with my label maker. Hard to see in the photos but easier to see IRL. 

I funneled the spices in by making a funnel out of paper and then just poured it in. After all the time it took to make these, David took one look at them and said "cool, I'll never use those"

Acascuseme?

Okay so they don't hold a ton of spice but how much do you really use in one recipe?! Sheesh! So I told him after he is done cooking I would refill them when needed. We'll see how that goes...

This would make a great gift for someone just moving into their own place. Because spices are something you acquire over time and it would be nice to get a "starter set" because buying a ton of spices so you have the basics adds up!

It's nothing fancy but hey, it's pretty!!

  5. Really cute but I think it might be hard to measure them out. But, who measures when cooking anyway, right?

  7. I love this idea! I have a drawer filled with a million and one spices...but I could see this making sense for the ones I use the most.
