Now is the time to label them and put them to use. I tried printing them on different colors and prints of paper but decided on shiny white labels so I printed her design onto photo paper.
I carefully trimmed the 6 I wanted.
Then I discovered my bottles were a different shape and so needed the labels to be trimmed even more. I added a stroke of highlighter to the name of the spice.
I sprayed the back of the label with spray adhesive (like the vanilla extract labels), and stuck them to the impeccably clean bottles (which I had run through the dishwasher along with the rack). First I tried 3 at a time which I don’t recommend because the labels need to be held down until the glue sets. I suggest two at a time.
Now I don’t know whether or not to use the rack or store the jars in the cupboard.
You may have noticed that the rosemary jar is empty, that’s because the rosemary still needs to be collected and dried.
The rack makes moving the jars handy. Still trying to decide if it needs a paint job and what color. “Herbal green” comes to mind.
I just need a place in the kitchen to show off this lovely, inspired-by-Pinterest project. Thanks, Kit!
