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
Time: 15 Minutes Difficulty: Easy
  • Use glass food jars to create free storage and organization for a craft room, pantry, kids room or where ever!
  • Peel off the labels and save the lids

    I found a box of old clear 1/2 gallon canning jars with lids in a storage unit. I have 11 that I can use for the thread spools in my sewing room. I will glue the two-piece lids together and add a knob.

    What an excellent idea! Jars take up so little room; I'm going to take my button box and sewing basket out of the closet and reuse jars instead. Great for bird food, cat or dog food too!

    I use jars like this all the time but usually look for lids with colors that will coordinate in the room. I use mayonaise and coffee jars mostly. The only bug-a-boo is when they change the shape of the jar just when you only need one more. I love the

    I've been saving glass jars to do this with also. It's just so darn cute how you personalized the labels to go with the lids.

    Thank you. I was unsure if metal, plastic or wood needed to be used. I can find some at the thrift stores and then paint them all the same. I am so loving this idea!!!!!!

    Connie I used wood knobs for these jars. Honestly, I just pulled them out of the bottom of the tool box....they were just some random knobs we had on hand. Even if all of your knobs
