DIY Kitchen Canisters

I have been looking for the perfect kitchen canisters for my counter tops for months. I knew I wanted clear glass, and of course labels were important too.
Each time I thought I found the perfect canisters I would walk away in sticker shock. So eventually, I decided to take matters into my own hands for a little DIY project. I was overdue for a project anyway.
And it is important to note the final cost for two kitchen canisters... 
I found the glass canisters at Walmart for $6.97 each. You can also find these same jars in several different sizes too at Walmart.
Next, I hoped on Etsy and found the perfect labels at Little Diddy for $6.

The final product - cookies for Charlie and coffee for me! I am pretty happy with how they turned out, although the "coffee" is kind of hard to read when the jar is full. But we go through coffee so quickly that the jar is usually more empty than full anyway!


  1. Such a cute idea. I love it :)

  2. This is a great idea and seems easy to replicate! I may have to try this myself soon! Love the idea of a jar for dog bones!

  3. These look great, and seem somewhat easy for someone like me, whose totally un-crafty, to do! We are currently in the process of moving and I love finding ideas for our new place!!


  4. Such a cute idea! I definitely will have to do this. xx

  5. These are absolutely adorable!! I'm on a "kitchen countertop crackdown" lately {a very proper term, obviously}, trying to consolidate and get things off the countertops that we don't really need. Once that's done, beautiful canisters it is! :) Thanks for the tips!

  6. This is such an adorable idea! I may do the same for my oats! I love how affordable they are!

  7. Glass canisters are the best! I have a large one filled with flour and medium sized one filled with sugar on my counter. They work perfectly for me since I am forever baking;)

  8. So adorable! I actually thought the labels were backed in green by the first picture (I guess it's just the grass showing through)

  9. Fabulous. I just added Little Diddy to my favorites on Etsy. I'm a label ho.

  10. I love your jars! I have been utilizing them quite often lately. Can't beat the prices at Target :)

  11. Love these! Officially pinned for one of my next DIY projects :)

  12. I had the same problem! I about squealed when I finally found the Walmart jar too. We use ours for flour and sugar. Love your labels!

  13. Super cute use of those labels!
