Pretty Ways to Repurpose: Bonne Maman Jars

I love my Bonne Maman jam jars. I rinse them out lovingly and save them (the label slips right off if you let the jar sit in a small bowl of warm water for a few minutes). I occasionally get it together to put things in them — granola, rice, nuts, small candies for the kids — and store them in the pantry. And one sits in permanent residence in the fridge, holding one of our favorite ingredients: chipotle chiles in adobo.

Turns our I am far from alone in my love of the French jam jars — there’s even a flickr group called Bonne Maman Love. Pretty, pretty!

And lots of people are into repurposing them, too — get inspired by wide open spaces, The Little House in the City, and i heart linen. I was.

Other ways to reuse: as a home for spices or dried beans, a candle-holder, a small vase, juice glasses.

Doesn’t your pantry deserve to look pretty?
