DIY $1 Spice Racks

Spices. I had duplicates I didn't know about. Some of my spices looked the same and I'd use the wrong one in a recipe (NOT fun!) This had to change! I wanted something cheap, something I didn't have to clean and easy to install.
I needed to clean out, purge and organize my spices. This was a mess to deal with!
I knew Dollar Tree would have something I could use! I picked up these cooling racks!
Then I bent them a little here and a little there... and voilá!
It was super easy to install on my pantry door!
Now look at my pantry shelf!! If you want to see exactly how I completed this project, check out the entire post.

    What did she use to hold racks up and hold ends to prevent spices from falling? Looks like she probably ducked taped the ends two sided so spices won't stick, and used small screws to hold racks up. Spices aren't that heavy so small screws would be fine.

      Or use command hooks if you don't want to harm your cupboards or whatever you are planning to attach it to. Try spray painting the racks for a fun look or using cardboard to make a shallow box to fit the bottom and use them as organizers for all kinds of stuff!

    How are the racks put in place?

      They are attached with a small screw that the wire rack hangs on, then I screwed tight the screw. It held up very well!
