I have an ongoing list entitled “Crafty House Projects.” Fun little DIY and creative projects that I want to do to add some personality and personalization to our home. Projects that I’ve been looking forward to for months.
On Sunday, we finally had some real down time. Down time where we didn’t feel pressured to run errands or have previous commitments.
Also known as: time to get to one of my fun projects!
Now, the bulk containers lining one wall of my kitchen are clearly labeled, look great, and bring some color to that side of the room. And it was so easy to do!
Bulk Container Kitchen Labels
Plain white or off-white paper
Scissors and/or paper cutter
Clean and dry the outside of your bulk containers.
Create all your labels on white paper. Just for fun and variety, I did some in print and some in cursive, some in all-caps and some not.
Cut out each label and mount on a piece of decorative paper with the double-sided tape. You should be able to see between 1/4″ and 1/2″ of the pattern on all sides of the label.
Cut a piece of Contact paper that is 3/4 – 1″ wider and 3/4 – 1″ taller than the decorative paper. Peel off the Contact paper backing, and center the label with the printed side facing the sticky side of the Contact paper.
Starting at one corner, carefully apply the label to the jar, smoothing as you go. Repeat with your remaining containers, then step back and admire your handiwork.
