Do you often make pickled cucumbers? Can’t imagine eating store-bought jams and plum jam? Homemade preserves are certainly delicious and at the same time can be a great decoration of any kitchen. See where to place and how to decorate jars with preserves to make them look good.
The jars are of great importance. The most popular are twist-off, i.e. those with metal caps. Weck jars, which are closed with a rubber band and a spring, also look nice. Labels can match the look of the glass, but don’t worry if they don’t match. You can quickly change their look by applying decorative paper or linen fabric, for example.
How do I put a cover on my jar lids? It is simple. You will need a square piece of paper, a napkin, some fabric or decorative paper, a rubber band and a ribbon. Apply the fabric, then squeeze with the rubber band, and then decorate with the ribbon. For an eco-friendly version, you can opt for traditional gray paper. On top of that, a colorful string will look really aesthetically pleasing.
If you do not want to decorate your jars with paper or fabric, you can bet on labels. Stick them on the top of the lid. This is also a good way if you will store your jars in a drawer. You can quickly judge what is inside the package from the top.
As for the labels, they are a must. There should be the name and the date of making the preserves. There are plenty of templates available on the internet for free, but you can also make your own. Just cut out a round, rectangular or square label from paper and write on it with a marker. Now you need to make holes with a hole punch. Place the label on a string or ribbon and you are done!
As a label you can also use the so-called chalkboard stickers. On them you can write what is inside.
Homemade preserves are a great idea for a gift. You can decorate them in any way you like and give them to someone close. Such a gift will surely be a hit!
Decorated preserving jars can also be placed in your kitchen. Aesthetic glass looks really beautiful and, moreover, adds to the idyllic atmosphere.
