Taking Care of Basics

Plain Mason/Kerr Canning jars are great for quick canisters. Labels can be taped or glued on for those ingredients that strongly resemble each other.

If not, you can purchase canning jars of all sizes in the canning section of your local department store or home shop.

Step-up those plain mason jars into shabby chic by painting outside of the jars, then lightly sanding the jars to make the letters pop out. Or you can purchase ready-made canisters that have the content labels already on the jars in raised letters. Add fabric covers for a little extra panache or personalization.
Canisters that come in shapes can lend humor and take part in a theme for your kitchen. Cows and chickens are common shapes, but owls, small buildings, and even fantastic creatures can be canister shapes. If you can’t find the shape you want at local stores, visit a pottery shop and ask if the proprietor makes original creations. Not all have this service, but some do.
