DIY Spice Containers

Throwing things out thoughtlessly is not our habit. The time has come for another upcycling project. We have already told you how to prevent kitchen sink clogs. Today we are going to tell you how to transform the same boxes into beautiful DIY spice containers.

This design will help us create not only a useful thing for the kitchen but also a very cute one. If you have one of these lying around, join us. The result will surprise you!

Kitchen Spice Containers

To make a spice container, you will need:

  • a container from laundry detergent capsules
  • a knife, sandpaper, and some nail polish remover
  • acrylic paints
  • sponge for washing dishes
  • brushes, silicone molds
  • PVA glue
  • decoupage napkins
  • polymer clay
  • a furniture handle
  • acrylic lacquer

You need to remove the stickers from the container. First use a knife, then sand with sandpaper.

Wipe the surface with nail polish remover. This will help remove any glue residue and degrease the plastic.

Use a sponge and paint the container with white acrylic paint. Let it dry for about 1 hour.

Grease the container with glue and glue the napkin.

Coat it with another layer of glue and leave to dry.

Meanwhile, you can start decorating the lid. Fill the molds with polymer clay.

Don’t wait for the clay to harden, and glue it onto the lid.

Screw the handle in the center of the lid. Now let it dry for 12 hours.

When the lid is dry, paint it with acrylic paint. We used orange, but feel free to choose any other color.

Paint the decorations using a darker shade of the same color.

After an hour, coat the container and lid with acrylic lacquer. Now you can safely wash the container.

Here’s our wonderful container for spices.

Who would have thought that you can make such a wonderful thing out of a plain plastic box? Did you like this project?


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!

Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog
platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and
I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if

A motivating discussion is worth comment. I think that
you need to publish more about this topic, it might not be a taboo
matter but usually people do not speak about such subjects.
To the next! All the best!!

Maybe you could space it out better?|
