9 Ways To Reuse Empty Baby Food Jars
How to Reuse Baby Food Jars
Baby food jars can soon mount up in the house if you're feeding a baby. They're a cute size though and if you've been wondering whether there is more you can do with them, this article will give you some ideas of reuse that will hopefully inspire more ideas for you.
Wash and dry out the baby food jars before any use.They need to be free of any leftover food and dry to avoid bacterial or mold growth.
Use the baby food jars to store small sewing items.The size of the jars makes them ideal to store such items as buttons, sequins, beads and other sewing baubles.
Store small hardware supplies in the baby food jars.Add nuts, bolts, screws, nails, washers and other small hardware items to the jars. If you're handy with wood, screw the lids into a piece of wood and mount the wood as a shelf. The jars simply screw or pop back into the lids and create a tidy storage space.
Make potpourri jars.Fill the jars with potpourri of choice. Cover the top of the jar with lace or other wide weave cloth to allow the scent to waft out. Finish up with a sweet ribbon bow tied around the jar to hold down the lace or other fabric.
Store condiments and other small food items in them for a picnic.The jars are great for taking small amounts of food such as jam, pickles, sauce etc. along to a picnic or tailgate event instead of having to take along the entire large jar such items come in originally. Obviously, don't use the jars for storage of such items after the picnic; what has not been eaten should be discarded after the picnic.
- The jars are excellent for taking salad dressing to a picnic or work. For example, mix olive oil and balsamic vinegar together and pour into the jar as a quick dressing.
Turn the jar into a candle holder.Pour sand into the base of the baby food jar, then add the tea light candle in the center. These work well indoors and out and throw a pretty glow.
- Add citronella candles for outdoor use to repel insects around entertaining areas.
Create a pincushion with pin holder.Sew the cushion part onto the lid and stuff well. Inside the jar, keep additional pins.
Keep dried herbs and spices in the jar.Large amounts of dried herbs can be easily and comfortably kept in baby jars.
Keep diaper pins in the jar.Place the jar next to the change table for ease of use.
Grow seedlings in the jars.Fill with soil and add seeds that will be transplanted quickly. Given that there are no drainage holes, this usage should be very short term.
Turn the jars into paperweights.Fill with different layers of sand and other interesting layers such as glitter and glue the lid into place. Decorate the lid and give away as gifts or use at home.
Use the jars to hold paint for finger painting and other projects.The jars are a good size for holding paint and for putting paintbrushes into.
Carry pet kibble, treats or biscuits in a jar when visiting people or going for a drive, etc.This is a neat way of carrying a small amount of treats or a pick-me-up snack for your pet.
- Glass paint can be used to decorate the glass for any project.
- Avoid reusing baby food jars for long-term storage purposes. Any food stored in the jars should either be condiments that will be used in the next few hours for a picnic or food that will be placed in the refrigerator for short-term storage. The lids are not designed for reuse for long-term food storage purposes.
