How to Make a Sugar Shaker

I love turning trash into treasure.  About a year ago, I made a Cinnamon Sugar Shaker out of an old Parmesan cheese container. It's held up really well. I love how you can either sprinkle it on or spoon it on depending on how you open the top. I use it for all sorts of things like cinnamon toast, or sprinkle it on crepes. I also use it to make my dried apples.


I decided that I needed one for plain sugar, since the kids are always getting out the big jar of sugar to sprinkle some on their rice krispies.

Update: I just made a powdered sugar shaker too: Powdered Sugar Shaker

 How to make a sugar shaker:



Step 1

First wash thoroughly and dry complete. Also take off the label.


Step 2

Next I cut a piece of thick scrapbook paper and attached it with glue dots. 


Step 3

Wrap the paper around and affix it at the other end.



Step 4

Next make a label. I used a template I've had forever.  Write on the label before attaching it.


Step 5

Affix the label using glue dots.


Step 6

For a more washable surface, apply two coats of mod podge. ( I would still only use a damp cloth to wipe it off. NEVER immerse in water or you'll probably ruin it.)
