over the past couple of years, my kitchen has become a place of peace and joy for me. i find so much happiness in the process of cooking and creating meals. so when the Oui by Yoplait team reached out and asked if we wanted to create a DIY project with their new limited-edition Oui heritage collection glass pots i knew i wanted it to be something that was useful in our kitchen. the Oui glass pots are already food safe, they have easy to remove labels and they are a perfect 5 ounce size which makes them ideal for our project. they are also 100% recyclable so you can continue to use them over and over again without worrying about quality or purity issues. we wanted to create something that was beautiful for your own home or that you could gift to someone for their kitchen. they launched three new heritage designs and our project focuses on our favorite, the classic stripe. ok, so here is the simple DIY project…homemade spice blends!

first things first, eat the yogurt. if you haven’t tried Oui by Yoplait yet, it’s a french style yogurt. each of the glass pots are individually poured, set for 8 hours and are subtly sweet and delicious.

after you’re done eating, wash and dry the pot and remove the labels. the glass pots are easy to clean, and the labels peel off easily. we made three different kitchen spice blends that you can store next to your stove and use on everything from eggs to popcorn. we’ll also walk you through how to make them!

how to make //

1. select a fabric you want to cover your lid in, it doesn’t need to be a large amount so you can use a scrap piece you have around the house. lay the fabric bottom side up, place a circle cutter on the fabric and trace around the edge with a pen or pencil.

2. cut around the pen mark to create your circle.

3. take the stopper and using a drill or a thin sharp object, push through the center of the cork to make a small hole, this will be the hole you thread the bead through later.

4. next, take the cork stopper and put tacky glue around the edges of the top.  gently rub with your finger so it covers the top cork surface. now place the glue side face down into the inside of the fabric. press firmly to secure. taking the edge of the scissors, poke through the fabric where the center hole is so that the hole is visible.

5. next take the tacky glue and put a light line all the way around the top edge of the stopper under the fabric. press the fabric into the glue on all edges, secure with a rubber band until it’s dry.

6. string the bead on the cord, make the ends even and push through the top of the cork stopper. once through secure the ends with a double know. trim off any extra cord.

7. remove the rubber band and replace with twine. knot, trim the ends and you’re done!

next – onto the spice blends:

fancy salts are fun to have around but can be expensive to buy. they are surprisingly easy to make at home. you can create one and keep it next to your stove to sprinkle on eggs, roasted potatoes, or avocado toast. there are tons of variations you can make, so feel free to experiment with flavors you like and enjoy.

ROSEMARY LEMON SALT //

  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

POPCORN BLEND //

i’m a big popcorn fan and making it on the stove top a couple of times a week. i like to play around with dressing it up with different herbs and salts. this blend is slightly sweet but with a little kick of cayenne. after you make the popcorn you can spray it with coconut oil which adds flavor and helps the seasoning to stick and then add the blend, mix well and enjoy.

• 4 tablespoons vanilla sugar
• 2 tablespoons cinnamon
• 1/2 teaspoon cayenne

place all ingredients in a bowl, mix well and place in your Oui by Yoplait glass pot. secure with the lid.

the third pot, is another blend that can easily be personalized to fit your flavor preferences. if you like more of a pick add some cayenne, or more smokey add some ancho chili powder. play around with the mixture until it feels right to you. you can sprinkle this on vegetables before roasting, in a soup you’re making, on tomato toast, roast chicken, etc.

SPICY BLEND//

• 2 teaspoon smoked paprika
• 1 tablespoon salt
• 2 teaspoons thyme
• 3 teaspoons garlic powder
• 2 teaspoons cumin
• 3 teaspoons chili powder
• 2 teaspoons black pepper
• 2 teaspoons onion powder

mix all ingredients until well combined, place in Oui by Yoplait glass pot. set by your stove top and enjoy! don’t be afraid to adjust, or add and take away things from the above list to truly make it your own.
