As I mentioned in my tutorial post for creating your own pantry labels, these spice labels would be making their appearance soon.
Not as soon as I would have liked but, better late than never… right?

I spent many, many nights over the past week or so trying to create or “perfect” my handwriting for these labels and to be completely honest – I’m still not fond of them.
I am extremely hard on myself (which I’m sure we are all way to hard on ourselves) and not being able to perfect things but, I’ve been working on just going with the flow and however it turns out, it turns out.
Plus, my hands were getting sore 😬.
My jars were purchased through Amazon and actually came with spice labels to use but I was still set on creating my own.
I love these jars because:
1. I am able to see just how much of each spice I have left and when I need to restock
2. They come with a plastic shaker inserts that are easy to take off if I need more than a dash
3. the stainless steels lids keep it so classy
A few little tips if you choose to use my free printable to use on your own spice jars:
Because the writing is relatively thin in some areas, I would suggest cutting each individual word out so it makes it easier when peeling apart the vinyl.
I am currently still awaiting for my Cricut weeding tool to arrive so, I resorted to using the sharpest scissors I own and using that to grab the tiny pieces while I used my opposite hand to hold the other pieces onto the paper
(I’ll admit – it was a bit of a struggle but worth it in the end. I’m pretty pleased with the project considering how much I stressed over “perfecting” it).
After applying the transfer paper to each label and making sure you rubbed the label firmly onto the jar, it’s important to make sure that you wiggle the transfer paper off slowly so that the vinyl sticks nice and good to the jars.
I’ve added a download of the my hand lettered spice labels which you can snag fo’ free HERE!
Any requests for different spices labels, please don’t hesitant to reach out to me here or leave me a comment below!
If you plan to use these through Cricut (my newfound obsession), I apologize in advance that you will need to annoyingly select the areas that you want voided out. I promise I’m in the middle of working out an easier option for ya’ll.
I hope you enjoy these labels and would love to see them in action in your own home! Share below.
