A simple spice rack made from spare parts.

P1000792I put together this simple spice rack made from old parts I had lying around the flat – two pieces of wire mesh, rubber bands and some toothpicks.

Because of the weave of the rubber bands and toothpicks in the mesh, no fasteners were required other than a few twist ties at the four corners to tack the two mesh squares together.

I think it came out all right. What I love about this little project is how the repetition of a simple pattern creates something much more than just the sum of its parts.

I love the slightly offset rubber bands and the crisscross pattern when viewed from the top.

Happy Easter!

Nice way to recycle materials there. The features of having a spice rack in your lovely kitchen is definitely to have complete organization and the comfort of having all your spices in one area.
