DIY 'Pharmacy Jars' From Glass Food Jars (Free Printable Labels)

Hands down this one is going in my #FavoriteProject file! Use glass food jars (think pickle jars, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter) and turn them into pharmacy jars. Glue old drawer nobs to the lid and spray paint. Then mod podge printable labels (free set of thought bubble printable is included here) on the front. Use them to store and organize craft or sewing supplies, pantry items, kids art supplies or whatever your heart desires. The full tutorial can be found at Two It Yourself #StorageSolutions http://twoityourself.blogspot.com/2013/05/ho...
Time: 15 Minutes Difficulty: Easy

    Use wide mouth lids, peanut butter, salsa, to put small gifts of candied pecans, small homemade candies in for Christmas or to keep in the house for surprise drop in guests. Same concept, remove labels, paint lids in Christmas colors, skip the nobs, ties

    Looks Great and very useful! Wondering if you can please give me/us ideas on how to recycle the red Folger coffee plastic containers? (or if you already did this, please provide a link to it) Thanks so much, also large oatmeal cylinder shaped.

    Neat. But I might lapse into adults-only labels.

    I plan to use gallon pickle jars for large items like balls of yarn.

    I love this! I reuse old jars and tins for my storage but hadn't put any effort into making them pretty -- these are so classy looking. One suggestion, though: I'd attach the knobs with screws just because when there's a knob everyone's first impulse is

    What a wonderful idea ... But instead of gluing on knobs I would just drill a hole and use a shorter screw. Haven't had much luck with glue lasting when being used all the time.

    The knob and painting provide great interest to the jars - who would guess these were just old used jars? Love this idea.

    This is a terrific recycling idea. Doesn't look recycled at all. Love the knobs and labels.

    You are a genius!!! I really love this idea as I'm looking at 10+ old jars in my cabinet, all in various shapes, heights, etc. Thanks for sharing this very cute and creative idea! :)
