As you can tell Jessica and I are huge fans of reusing everyday items to give them new life. Well with 2 kids we go through a lot of applesauce and I'm left with these rather large jars so I've given them new life by turning them into tea containers. Hubby and I gave up the coffee and are into loose leaf tea these days. After washing out the jars and scrubbing off the labels, the hardest part. I then painted the lids with a craft paint I bought at Michael's a few years ago. It's called Sophisticated Finishes and it says it's ideal for indoor and outdoor use.
The possibilities are endless for reusing jars. Store rice, dry beans, small pasta noddles etc. And the bonus is that if everything in your cabinet is in the same size jar it will be more organized and you can actually see what you have on hand. Heavenly!
