I was given some sample pots of Jams and Chutneys for Christmas The jars are cute and small so I am recycling them
Put some masking tape or secure paper to the lid with Selloptape to mark the hole positions
This will stop the Bradawl or nail sliding on the metal
Punch a few holes with a hammer and Bradawl or nail
You will now have a shaker for dusting Icing Sugar, sprinkling Sugar on your cereals or flouring your work surface for pastry making etc...etc...
If you make the holes small they could also be used as Salt or Pepper Pots
To keep the contents dry you can put a piece of pretty fabric or cling film over the top when you are not using them
