Spiced-Up Recycled Glassware for the Kitchen

Try using attractive jars from products such as salsa as kitchen drink glasses.


| April/May 2013


Year after year, a glass or two would meet up with my kitchen floor and shatter, slowly but surely eliminating the available glassware in my kitchen cupboard. So I thought of the next best thing. 

I searched our recycling bag and found some unique glassware, such as pickle jars and jelly jars. The most attractive ones were the salsa jars. 

If your favorite glass gets stained or broken, just explore the grocery store aisles for another.
