Repurposing Food Jars

I had some empty pickle jars and spaghetti jars I wanted to use for an eventual project, and after I bought my kids a huge pack of Crayola markers I knew they would come in handy.  We are about to start our new home school year and having just moved, one of my goals is to decorate in a sort of cabin meets farmhouse style.

I had painted a couple of the jars cobalt blue originally but decided to repaint them white.  I can’t get enough of the bright lately. I experimented and painted two of the jars black first with some chalkboard spray paint I had leftover.



I didn’t have a scratch pad on hand so I just used a dried out rag I had in the garage. Lovely huh? I didn’t even peel the sticker off the pickle jar. I started but it was sticky and I didn’t want to mess with cleaning it off. It still turned out fine.


I liked the jars that I had prepainted black with the white on top better because it made the distressed look pop.
