Consider making your own vinyl decals to label all your pantry containers! 😍 I recently re-organized my pantry and made some fun Rae Dunn inspired adhesive labels for the food containers in my pantry, and love how they turned out!

Just in case you’re not familiar, Rae Dunn is a popular pottery brand featuring long skinny lettering on white canisters, bowls, plates, coffee cups, etc.

It’s easy to personalize containers yourself with this trendy farmhouse look by grabbing the free for personal use font called The Skinny. It’s the same font I used to make these personalized Christmas ornaments… NOW I’m using the same idea in the pantry! So fun!

DIY: Mosquito Repellent Mason Jars

Screen Shot 2017-05-30 at 5.57.32 AMWe all love summer, that’s for sure, but we all dislike the insects it brings with it, especially the mosquitoes. They’re very annoying and prevent us from fully enjoying the pleasant summer days. What’s more, with the recent Zika virus epidemic, the reason to find a way to get rid of them is even more important.

DIY MOSQUITO REPELLENT MASON JARS

When combined together, essential oils and citrus fruits make a very effective mosquito repellent. Here’s what you will need:

2 mason jars
10 drops of lemon eucalyptus essential oil
10 drops of citronella essential oil
One lemon, sliced
One lime, sliced
4 rosemary sprigs
2 Floating disc candles

Preparation: Add even amounts of lemon and lime slices to each jar and then put 2 sprigs of rosemary into each jar. Next, fill the jar with ¾ water and add 10 drops of the essential oils to a specific jar (don’t mix them). To activate them, just light a candle.

These bug-repelling jars make a great addition to backyards, porches, campfires, and other outdoor areas where you spend your summer nights.
