Spice it Up with Spice Bottle Stampers!

I’ve been in cleaning/organizing mode for a while now, and tackled my kitchen cabinets last week.  After checking the dates on my spices and pulling out all the oldies, I’m a little ashamed to admit what a spice hoarder I am, but at the same time very excited to have all these cute little jars to play with now!

Oh, the possibilities! Kitchen trash = tot school treasure!

Since we are still emphasizing the color yellow this week, I decided to make some simple paint stampers with a few of my spice jars.  The bottles turned out to be the perfect size and they only took a few minutes to make with materials I already had in my craft supplies.

After we were done, I wiped the paint off the foam stampers and let them dry.  I doubt these will last indefinitely, but we should get at least a couple more uses out of them.
