Spice Containers: Baby Food Jars

I finally finished! And I learned how to use my new Silhouette. Hallelujah! I made about 20 of these for my dad for his birthday/ house warming present.

 What you will need: 
-Baby food jars with lids
-Silhouette (or something of that sort)
-Spray paint (for lids)
-Armour Etch

1. Clean your jars of all the stickiness from the labels. I found that if you spray them with WD-40 and then scrub them with an abrasive sponge, that works great.
2. Cut our your fonts in vinyl. I used font size 48.
3. Carefully cut out your labels and put them on the jars so the letters are taken out.
4. Apply Armour Etch to only the area inside your letters. Let set five minutes. Rinse. Dry. Then remove you labels and clean with window cleaner.
5. Paint several coats of spray paint on your lids.
6. I added another label to the top of the lids just for fun. 
Then you're finished!


  1. Wow what a great idea and great way to reuse those little jars!! I love it, and Ive been wanting a silhouette sooo bad! I too want to etch glass!!! :)

  2. Great idea! I'm going to have to try that etching thing one of these days.


  3. I love it! I may have to purchase a silhouette. I grow my own herbs and always need neat jars to house them in!

  4. Very classy spice jars. Standard jars are too small - these area great size.

  5. Love it! I too have a silhouette, am really just beginning with it, but so far soooooo good! Love your spice containers. Good Job!
    Thanks for sharing.

  6. That's a neat way to reuse all those jars! I may have to start saving them from now on. Thanks for the awesome idea.

  11. I LoVe this idea but I think the baby food company woke up to this and the baby food jars we buy here don't screw back on properly. So you never get that tight seal like you used to. Ive had to throw dozens of those jars in the recycle bin as we can't re use them.Maybe they didn't want mothers reusing them to put their own baby food in there. Either way i think it's a big shame. It's a great idea if you can hold of decent baby food jars or maybe use other type of jars.

  12. Very cute! I would love to adapt this for my daughter's beads & hair knick knacks. How do the spray painted lids hold up over time...does the paint chip off?

  13. Great idea and tutorial! Shared it on my own blog :)
