Glass Herb Vase

 All the glass jars that we buy filled once with jelly, pickles, salsa, make great vases. I keep a small collection of different sizes and shapes, which come in handy for fresh herbs and flowers. 

The annoying thing is the sticky label that is difficult on many to take off. To get the label off, I either soak them in hot water or run them through the dishwasher, then peel. Goof Off and a rag helps remove the adhesive too.

Well, sometimes I just want a little instant gratification. With a paper bag, scissors/xacto knife, glue, and a sharpie, I just cover the label.

All there is to do is cut strips from the paper bag to fit around the jar. Leave a little extra length to glue it to the other end of the strip.

For herbs, you can make your own label using a handy dandy sharpie (the cilantro one I used a rubber stamp flower).

Now I have herbs in the kitchen at my fingertips,
 and it looks pretty too!
