There comes a point in every baby’s life where they eat a LOT of baby food. And there’s something about baby food jars that makes them hard to throw away. They’re a great size for so many things. So when I had some baby food jars hanging around I went looking for a good way to use them around my house. This is what I came up with (for a contributor post over at Made from Pinterest):
I saw these fun little bud vases made from baby food jars over at Apples and Onions, and I started thinking about what I wanted to do with the multitude of baby food jars I currently go through. I’ve used them for spice jars, for holding screws, and for lots of other purposes, but not really for decoration. And why not?
I took the idea and ran with it. I started with these Beechnut baby food jars–I love the shape (and that there’s no rim you’re trying to scrape food out of when feeding your baby) so I cleaned and de-stickered three.
And instead of dipping, I added some washi tape in a spiral, and painted around the tape. Super simple.
Then the only thing left was to fill them! Since I’m using mine in the bathroom, I put in some cotton swabs, cotton balls, and a few tools we use often. Set them on a cute little mirror tray, and that’s it!
What would you make from baby food jars?
