Why DIY?

Sure, you could buy a pre-made spice organizer, but where's the fun in that? Plus, DIYing gives you complete control over the size, style, and functionality of your organizer. And let's face it, it's a budget-friendly option that won't break the bank.

Materials You'll Need

  • ½-inch plywood or MDF
  • Wood screws
  • Dowels or wooden rods
  • Wood glue
  • Sandpaper
  • Paint or stain (optional)

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Measure and cut the plywood to fit your drawer. You can use a saw or ask for a custom cut at your local hardware store.
  2. Sand the edges of the plywood to smooth out any rough spots.
  3. Determine the spacing for your spice bottles and mark the locations for the dowels or rods.
  4. Drill holes for the dowels or rods at the marked locations.
  5. Apply wood glue to the ends of the dowels or rods and insert them into the holes.
  6. Screw the plywood into the drawer using wood screws.
  7. If desired, paint or stain the organizer to match your kitchen decor.


  • Use dowels or rods of different diameters to accommodate different spice bottle sizes.
  • Add a non-slip liner to the bottom of the drawer to prevent bottles from sliding around.
  • Label the spice bottles with clear labels so you can easily identify them.


Voilà! You now have a beautifully organized spice drawer that keeps your spices within easy reach. Say goodbye to clutter and hello to a kitchen that inspires culinary creativity. Happy organizing, my friends!
