DIY Magnetic Spice Jars by Repurposing Baby Food Jars

JAR FOOD Published September 30th, 2013 9,802 views

Here is a very creative idea to reuse baby food jars by turning them into magnetic spice dispensers!

If you’re like me, I can’t stand to part with anything that seems even remotely valuable or useful, and though I don’t have any empty baby food jars laying around, it makes me want to go buy some just to do this craft!

If you thought I was going to say it makes me want to have a baby, you’re nuts! Okay, I’m teasing. If you are nuts, that’s okay, too, though. We are all a little crazy, or we wouldn’t be creative.

Not to venture away from the main point too much, but if you think about it, every brilliant mind in history has been a little crazy.


  • Baby food jars (imagine that).
  • Scrapbook paper / card stock
  • Distressing ink
  • Magnets
