Have you ever opened your cabinet only to be faced with unmarked packages of bulk from the grocery store? Small bags of oats, large bags of brown rice, and assorted dried fruits are all common sights. True, there’s plastic containers. But what fun is that?

One of the many projects in Stencil Me In has just the thing: custom mason jars! With contact paper and spray paint, you can create any design or marking you want. Or, if you want to make the ones with the symbols shown here, you can do that, too. Do the symbols really mean “rice” and “oats?” They do if you want them to!

Use the downloadable PDFs below to get started. There’s some basic stenciling and spray-painting how-to, as well as a larger photo of the project and templates to trace (if you so desire).

Like what you see?  Stencil Me In, which includes more than two-dozen full-size stencils, is on sale 50% off today and tomorrow on BN.com (along with lots of other craft titles in the 50% Off Summer Activities Sale).

    Wow, marvelous blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is great, let alone the content!

    My husband and i have been absolutely thrilled when John could complete his investigation using the precious recommendations he made using your web site. It’s not at all simplistic to simply choose to be giving freely helpful tips that some other people may have been trying to sell. So we understand we need the writer to be grateful to because of that. All the illustrations you made, the easy site menu, the relationships you give support to foster – it’s got mostly spectacular, and it is making our son and the family imagine that that theme is enjoyable, and that is seriously fundamental. Thanks for everything!
