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

Crafts 05.13.15
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

    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.

    Thank You Sandra Laine, don't know why I didn't think to do that, I'm always checking things. Appreciate the help. Probably just another senior moment.

    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! :)

    These look great and serve a purpose. Very nice! I think I would use chalk labels so that I could just erase if I decided to put something else in the jars.
