Vintage Crafts- Painted Shakers

Vintage Crafts- Painted Shakers

vintage pepper shakers

Hi guys! I am back today to share another vintage craft with you guys. Over the years I have collected a bunch of vintage magazines. Some of my favorites are my vintage Workbasket mags. Today’s craft comes a May 1952 Issue of Workbasket Magazine and talks about making Painted Salt and Pepper shakers from bottles for Bazaars. I thought I would paint a couple of my own for my kitchen.

In the article, “Women Who Make Cent’s,” a reader uses condiment or spice jars to make her shakers. She paints them with enamel paint. I used a set of aqua enamel metal salt and pepper shakers I bought at World Market. I used Martha Stewart craft paint which works on all surfaces. I painted roses on mine inspired by my favorite vintage hanky.

I love how my salt and pepper shakers turned out! They look great in my kitchen and have a sweet vintage feel. I am not the best at painting, but I had a fun time painting my shakers. I hope you all will give this one a try sometime! I’ll be back with more vintage craftiness soon. Until then…

Happy Crafting!
