Canister Labels

I've been wanting to add a little oomph to the canisters on my kitchen counter for a while now, but wasn't quite sure what route I wanted to take.

I was thinking of doing vinyl, but that wasn't an original idea, and let's just face it, I like being a little different.

Inspiration finally struck when I found these bad boys (well, I should probably call them 'girls' since they are so totally feminine) at Michael's.

At $2 bucks a pop, they were a little more than what I was wanting to spend (yeah, I'm a cheapskate), but the end result made it worth it to me.

The color wasn't going to work in my kitchen, so I spray painted them espresso brown. 

And while I waited for them to dry, I got out my little stamp set and stamped the words onto brown packaging paper (Love that stuff! So versatile!).

(Yeah, it took a few trial runs)

I then cut out the cheap, plastic wannabe glass and added the labels.

I glued some twine to the back, hung them, then called it a day!

I'm diggin' the eclecticism of the fancy frame and shiny sheen with the natural jute and rugged stamped letters.

Oh, and while I was at Michael's, I also picked up some of these bad, girls. Love love LOVE the ruffles!

I hope I inspired you to pick some up and create something unconventional with these picture frames!

Very cute idea! I love that it's so unexpected. And those frames are adorable. Makes me think where else could I use those?

I love this idea. They look great! The natural brown with the packaging paper gives them such a vintage look. Just lovely!

I saw those at my Michaels and hated the colors. Duh! Spray paint works wonders. I love what you did!
