PANTRY JARS  

A much loved way to create calm in the pantry is through the use of mason jars, which are perfect for storing pantry staples like flour or rice and bring a crisp, clean feel to any space.

These simple jars have skyrocketed in popularity over the past year, with saves for ‘pantry jar ideas’ increasing by 180 per cent. 

Many homeowners have designed their pantries using nothing but different sized jars to store all dry items including pasta, nuts, spices, sugar, flour and seeds.

Others have stored their jars on their sides like Amy from the Idea Room, who made a DIY spice rack using small jars. 

‘I had been slowly buying my new spices in these cute spice jars from Target. They are in the spice aisle and the Archer Farms brand. The jars fit perfectly,’ she said. 

‘Now, of course, I HAD to make some labels for the lids so that I could see what the spices were and to give them some extra oomph!’

PANTRY LABELS   

Another DIY hack seen on Pinterest is the use of pantry labels, which has had a 75 per cent increase in ideas saved over the past 12 months. 

One popular idea came from The Social Home, who printed out beautiful blue labels for her jars and containers. 

‘I ended up printing out a gazillion of them for everything I could think of to label. I even labeled the canisters I keep on my counters because they are just so pretty,’ she said.  

Angela Marie Made also shared some crafty ideas for labelling and made her own pantry stickers using a printer and clear sticker paper.   

Others simply use white board markers, chalk or permanent marker to give their labels a personal twist.
