How to Make or Upgrade a DIY Spice Drawer Organizer
My name is Tish and I’m going to show you how I updated a DIY spice drawer organizer I created a year ago from the Dollar Tree. It’s still holding strong after a year but I’m going to show you how I took it to the next level.
So, for 2022, I decided to update a few things around the house and I started with this DIY spice drawer. I’m going to add some Dollar Tree wood vinyl to my organizer to make it pop. Right now, it’s just plain and white and maybe a little messy from my spices.
Here’s the before photo of my spice drawer. I still had a tough time finding the spice I needed when I needed it.
2. Here’s the spice drawer insert
As you can see, it is a little dirty but it held up well.
3. Choose an adhesive
I bought this adhesive for $1 at the Dollar Tree. They had a lot to choose from but I chose this one to match my wood-grain utensil organizer.
4. Cut the adhesive paper
Measure the drawer insert and cut the adhesive to fit the organizer.
5. Apply the paper
Cut the adhesive paper. Apply each piece to the spice drawer organizer by peeling and sticking it on the organizer.
6. Keep covering levels
Cover all the levels or steps of the organizer.
Put the finished spice drawer insert back into the drawer.
8. Fill jars
I bought these glass spice jars on Amazon. I filled them with my go-to spices and some I use for only one recipe. But I love spices.
Tip: wash the little funnel between filling each jar with a different spice so you don’t mix flavors!
9. Add labels
The jars came with these labels. I love the uniform look of the spice jars and the labels. Now I can see what spices I am grabbing when I need them because each jar only has the one label on it. I could also see which spices I was low on and which ones expired.
10. Finally organized!
Look how beautiful my spice drawer organizer is now!
