Old Jars Made New

canister storage jar lid recycle upcycle mayonaise jar paint lid

Use empty mayonnaise and pickle jars to store spices in the kitchen or crafts. Clean jars completely and dry. Attach wooden drawer pull (hardware stores have these for about 50 cents) with E6000 and let dry. You can also add a screw from the inside of the lid into the drawer pull for a secure lid. Spray paint the lid/drawer pull with a color of your choice and let dry. You might want two coats on here to give a nice covering. Spray or brush a clear coat of polyurethane to make sure the paint does not get scratched off.

Easter Deviled Eggs

299768_452714101468402_2010936606_nEaster Deviled Eggs

Ingredients

10 hard boiled eggs
food coloring
1 tsp vinegar for each color you are using
water
½ cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip or half of each (I use Miracle Whip)

Remove the shells from the hard boiled eggs and slice each egg in half.
Remove the yolks from the egg halves and place in a bowl. Set the yolks aside.
Get enough glasses or mugs for the number of colors you want to use. Fill the mugs or glasses ⅔ of the way full with cold water.
Add 3 drops of desired food coloring along with 1 tsp vinegar to each mug or cup.
Place egg whites in the mugs and allow to sit in the food coloring until desired color is reached. I could fit 3 egg whites in each of my mugs at a time.
Remove whites from dye and drain on a plate lined with a couple of paper towels.
Take the reserved yolks and mash them with a fork. Then mix in the ½ cup mayonnaise with the mashed yolk.
Pipe or spoon the yolk mix into the colored egg whites. Makes 20 deviled egg halves.
