DIY: Jar Spice Shaker

We all have a spice we use more than others. For some it’s sugar or cinnamon, for me it’s salt.

This is a simple tutorial on how to make a unique spice shaker from a common jar.

What You’ll Need:

  • Jar – mine was a jelly jar
  • Paint
  • Awl
  • Spice

First, pick some points on your lid to place the holes. I went with three, but you could make as many holes as you would like!
Stick the awl through the lid – watch our for your fingers!

Then paint the lid. Since I am opting for a neon yellow, I needed to add a coat of white as a primer to help the yellow stand out more. You only need to paint the outside of the lid.

After it’s dry, add your spice screw on the lid and you’re ready to get cooking!
