Are you ready to spice up your life and your countertops? Spice racks are one of those functional but sometimes not-so-cute kitchen counter dwellers…until now! I love this DIY Test Tube Spice Rack because it’s lovely and functional. The spices get to be seen through the clear glass with no labels and the wood-burned names keep you organized. The corks also add a nice vintage touch. Get the supplies list and how-to below!

Now that your spices are organized, how about organizing other things in jars with some ‘DIY Animal Jar Tops‘?

Prep It:

Do It!:

  1. Plug in your wood burning pen (careful the tip gets very hot), write out all of your spice names on the wood rack where the tube will go – you may want to practice your wood-burning technique on a scrap piece of wood first.
  2. Funnel the spices into the tubes.
  3. Snugly fit a cork in each tube.
  4. Display your new spice rack in your kitchen with pride!

Kate! Do you think you could make a small series about common mistakes people make when they redecorate their homes? For example your advice on how to mix patterns, styling bookshelves, picking a color palette for your apartment?

How creative and cute Kate! This would be perfect for a nerd like myself. Now I can pretend to be a mad scientist brewing up some cool experiment... a scientist who can cook good food. The last one's no pretend though. Haha!

How cute! I imagine the shape of the tube would also allow you to add just the right pinch of seasoning to your meals too.
