For the new cook, old cook or kitchen diva on your Christmas list, pack up essentials like measuring spoons, paring knives, vegetable peelers and pastry brushes in a decorative jar—which then makes a perfect container for utensils, pasta, flour, dried beans, jellybeans…whatever strikes your fancy.

Materials:

  • 2 quart wide-mouth Ball canning jars
  • Alphabet stickers

Instructions:

1. Wash and dry jar. Apply alphabet stickers to the outside of jar to create cooking-related words, such as “zest,” “cook,” “stir,” “whisk,” “dice,” etc. Press edges of stick-on letters down using the back of a spoon to seal to glass.

2. Choose gadgets, candies, pasta, dried beans or other item to fill jar; replace lid.

3. Add a gift tag and/or ribbon.
