Printable Farmhouse Herb and Spice Jar Labels in Two Styles

World_Label_Spice_Jar_Labels Now that you have your pantry newly styled with your Farmhouse Pantry Labels it is time to update your herb and spice labels too. Just for you, here are two sets (chalkboard and kraft paper) of herb and spice jar labels to match the pantry labels from last weeks post.

For my jars, I decided to use the label on both the side and the lids of the jars to make them easy to read at any angle. If you are looking for some great reusable jars, I found mine at World Market for 99¢ each. I love to buy my refills at my local health food store’s bulk section and save both dollars and tossing my used glass jars into the recycling bin with this method. Look how nicely these jars fit into my spice drawer. To make them even easier to keep organized, I trimmed simple triangle baseboard to the width of the drawer, one strip for each row of spices so four strips total. This keeps the jars in place and tips them up slightly so they are easier to grab while I am cooking. I will share more about this in my upcoming kitchen tour.

Before you update them to your own text, you will need to download and install the free farmhouse style fonts. To edit the PDFs you will need to have them on your desktop and opened in Adobe Acrobat. You can then select the text and type in your own. Both the chalkboard and kraft styles have three pages in the PDF. The first is a script/caps, the second caps/script and the third just the caps. The three variations should give you the flexibility you will need for almost any herb or spice label. Print them onto a full sheet label paper (white since the chalkboard and kraft are part of my printable design) and trim the circles with a 1.5 inch circle punch. Place the labels on both the jar and one on the lid. I am loving my updated pantry and spice drawer and want to share a huge thanks to for hosting these printables on their blog. Enjoy! ~ Lia     Kraft_Printable_Spice_Labels Chalkboard_Printable_Spice_Labels FarmhouseButtonFontButton


  1. I downloaded the Farmhouse labels which are great (thank you) but I would love to see one of the labels that is blank so you can write in your own spice. What do you think?

  2. Hi Lia! I just adore your work!!
    Yesterday I printed these labels in a supply office, but the chalkboard doesn´t look like the one in your photos, it is much more thin.
    Also, I wasn´t able to edit the labels with Adobe Reader (the only way was editing them in the browser and the downloading them in my computer). Thanks so much for such lovely stuff!! I am planning to redecorate my hole house.

    Best wishes from Argentina!

    • Hi Maria and Hi to Argentina! The quality of the chalkboard depends on the printer. Usually you will get better quality with a laser printer.

  3. Hi Lia,
    I LOVE these labels but just printed them and unfortunately, I can read the lower case (i.e. ground) but barely can see the name of the spice (i.e. cloves). So frustrating – but I think it’s my printer – or ink? that has not worked properly. I just wondered if you – or anyone – had any idea how to make these print properly. Do I need to use photo quality perhaps? Thanks –

    • I would try printing them at an office supply store like Kinkos or Office Depot. They have nice laser printers, must home printers are ink jet and they quality of the laser prints are generally much better for images.

  4. What type of world labels did you use? I’m torn between the glossy version and the reusable version. Thoughts?

  5. Oh, this is adorable! You make such cute stuff Lia :) thanks for sharing!.

    I couldn’t quite figure out if you use sticker paper? if not, how/what do you glue it with?

  6. Mine downloaded. I have the square spice tins in my kitchen Island drawers and I found out if you print these out in landscape mode they are the perfect size for them. Was just trying things out and it worked.

  7. Hi there. the labels don’t seem to be downloading :-(

  8. I have 40 spice jar lids to cover. To save work, will these work on 1 1/2″ Avery round labels (#8293) instead of cutting each label with a round circle punch?

  9. I had download it and was able to edit the first two pages, just not the last page with the single line of type. I didn’t know if maybe one browser downloaded things more “thoroughly” than another. I cannot begin to tell you how much I adore these new jars and labels in my pantry- I am well on my way to have a full blown chalkboard label addiction! Thanks so much for making them available!

  10. Love these- they look amazing. I bought the jars last weekend and was getting ready to print but wasn’t able to edit the third page. Any idea why? Using Firefox browser.

    • You will need to download the file and open it in Adobe Acrobat or the free version which is Reader. You can’t edit there in the browser window unless they are changing that function. . . which would be great!

  11. how can you add your own text?

    • There are notes on how to do so in the post. Download the fonts I provide. Open the PDF on Acrobat or Reader. Select place holder text and add your own. :-)

  12. I looked for the details on the triangle baseboard you made to hold the jars in your kitchen post and didn’t see them, do you mind sending me the link? I made the jars and just need to organize them in the drawer.

    You are so talented I love to get posts from your blog and share your creations with others.

  13. These look great, and really professional! Did you make them yourself? I love them!

  14. I love this! :)

    I’m redoing my pantry and this will definitely help to make it look absolutely gorgeous!

    I’d pay for this – without a doubt!

  15. Ooooh I love, love, LOVE these! If you don’t mind my asking, where did you get the jars? If I’m going to redo all my labels, I’d like to start with all the same jars.

  16. I LOVE these! Thank you so much for the gorgeous printables…. and the link to the jars. Looks so much nicer than the jars they come in!

    I hate to sound stupid, but could you please post a picture of the baseboard you used to hold the jars in place? It would really help me to see it. Thank you in advance if you are able to post the pic!

  17. These are beautiful, Lia! I desperately need to re-label (and clean and purge) my spice jars…but now I’m torn between these and your previous chalkboard labels! Choices, choices. :)

    • I actually scrubbed all of the old version off for this new version. Both are nice, I like the added sweetness to this set with the flowers.
