Get creative with your school supplies while recycling. Turn a spice container into a peanut butter jar sharpener to add a little spice to your school day.
What you need:
- small body pencil sharpener – plastic or metal
- Empty spice container ( I used a Tone’s brand 6g jar)
- Acrylic paint: brown and tan
- Mod Podge
- Brush for Mod Podge
- Brush for paint
- Hot glue gun and glue
- JIF Label
Print out the Jif label and apply a coat of Mod Podge. Set it aside to let it dry. Cut out.
Remove label from your spice container and clean with a damp paper towel. Let dry.
Mix tan and brown paints to make a peanut butter color.
Paint the inside of the jar leaving about 1/4 in inch of the top unpainted.
Heat up your glue gun. Press the tip through the spice jar lid opening to expand the size. Test the opening to make sure a standard pencil can fit through.
Glue a sharpener to the lid with its hole is lined up to the opening.
Hot glue a thin line on the back of the green side of the label and press to the jar.
Glue down the rest of the label with Mod Podge and use hot glue at the end of the label to make it nice and secure.
Place your lid on and sharpen away. Remove lid to empty shavings.
