Shake it up with Mod Podge™ and McCormick Sea Salt and Pepper Grinders

When on vacation, I always bring some Art and Craft supplies (and some sewing, crocheting supplies, too).  Whenever we stay for an extended time and have a kitchen to use, I want to make it feel  a little like home and a lot like vacation!!  Enter the Plain Grinders...

The taste of freshly ground peppercorns, the twist of the sea salt is perfect for so many of our cooking needs.  But the black and red labels just don't do anything for ambience, for decor....With paper and Mod Podge™ in hand, I quickly transformed them into a beach inspired addition to our table on the balcony!  This project is what I call a snippet.  When you only have a snippet of time or a snippet of supplies, you can transform simple salt and pepper shakers to a decor element that adds to the theme of your party, your celebration, your table and most definitely your food!! Let's get started...


Mod Podge™
Sponge brush
Ink in a coordinating color
Salt and Pepper Shakers
Twine or ribbon
Seashells, embellishments of choice 


1.  Cut paper to cover label and have a little overlap. Ink edges to provide definition

2.  Using sponge brush, apply to Mod Podge™to the paper and then wrap around the bottle, being sure to smooth the paper as you go along.  Set aside to dry.

3.  Apply 2 coats of Mod Podge™ as sealer.  Let dry

4.  For my salt shakers, I added twine and seashells.  Ribbon, twine buttons, charms and even flowers can be used.  

I hope you enjoy this simple project and will add these shakers to your next party!!

Until next time, Shake it up!!!
