Spice it Up!

Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of the summer. Your family has returned from their summer adventures and school is back in session. Hopefully you made some happy memories. You may have even collected a few trinkets along the way that will remind you of your relaxing strolls on the beach or hikes through the woods and roasting marshmallows around the campfire. So, let's continue on the topic of preserving and displaying memories.

A magnetic spice rack is a simple, stylish way to show off your travel collections. Fill it with shells, rocks, coins... The possibilities are endless.


  • magnetic spice rack
  • cardstock
  • pen
  • scissors
  • tape
  • shells, rocks, coins, or whatever small items you like to collect in your travels


Magnetic spice racks typically come with 4-10 containers that stick magnetically to a metal strip that can be mounted to the wall.

Finding the perfect spice rack is the key to making this project work. You want to make sure that you can see through the lids so your objects aren't hidden. You also want to make sure that the containers are big enough to hold your stuff. Some stores you might try: Target, Bed, Bath and Beyond,  Home Goods, or even Amazon. I think mine came from Bed, Bath and Beyond years ago.

Trace the lid on a piece of cardstock. Be aware that you will be cutting slightly inside of the traced line so it fits inside the container.

Write where you collected your special items and the date on the label. I like to do this towards the top of the label so that you can see the words when the items are in the container hanging on the wall.

Cut out the label (inside the traced line), roll up a piece of tape and put it on the back of the label and stick it inside your container.

Label and fill each container.

It's okay if you can't fill every container right away. That just means you get to go on another adventure to collect more memories.

Close the lids.

Carefully mount the metal strip on the wall and hang each container.

Whenever you want to recall your travels with family, pull off one of the magnetic containers and pour out some smiles.
