DIY Custom Canisters

I've been a busy little crafter lately. The silver lining of moving so much is that it gives me an excuse to update a few things here and there, and I'm just about done! Here's an easy DIY that I did over the weekend.

I love the canisters we've used for the past few years, but they finally started to crack on us.

I found these adorable canisters at Target but wasn't too crazy about the colors (specifically the mustard yellow one!) Then I remembered that you can paint just about anything now, so with a little Googling and a trip to Michael's, I discovered FolkArt glass paint. So cheap ($2.50 a bottle!) and so easy. (Martha Stewart also has glass paint but doesn't have as many colors as FolkArt.)

Simply paint your glass or ceramic object and let it air dry for 1 hour. Then, place your items into a cool oven and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Allow them to completely cool in the oven before removing them. Now you have a beautiful, dishwasher-safe canister! (I threw in my spoon rest, too!)

I used my chalk pen to label them, which gives you a peek into our healthy, well-balanced diet :)

Happy Monday, y'all!

I have no canisters to paint...but I'm totally painting my spoon rest! I've been hating the color almost since I bought it...

I love those canisters. I have been wanting them, but they don't all match my kitchen. I would have never thought to paint the lid. That opens up so many options!
