Introduction: Magnetic Spice Rack for Refrigerator

If you'd like to find a spice rack to hold all of your different kinds of spices but, you don't want to buy all new spices, here's an idea that worked like magic for me : )

Step 1: Gather Supplies

For this project, you're going to need:
1 hot glue gun
Hot glue sticks
1 pack of 50 round magnets
6 pencil holder organizers


Step 2: Hot Glue Magnets to Organizer

Hot glue 5 magnets to the top of each organizer and 4 to the bottom of each equally spaced.  Photo Shown.

Step 3: Enjoy!

Place spice racks on refrigerator with spices and enjoy!

I too am limited on shelf save. My only problem with Dollar Tree is I want to buy everything. I found all sizes of baskets for my needs. Does anyone know if they still make the plastic under counter paper towel holder. I am using baskets for every room in the appt thanks to all the video ideas.

I tried but it keeps falling. What are the best magnets for this?

LOVE this idea! I'm going to make mine this weekend!

This is such a great idea! I love it!!

Where exactly did you get those magnets? What kind are they?

Round magnets or even strips or bars of magnetic tape can be found at Walmart or most craft supply stores.

Where'd you get the little bins? I've been all over the place. Thanks.

The Dollar General Store, or the Family Dollar Store, or the Dollar Tree..They normally cost $1.00 and no doubt Walmart, but I believe they are more than $1.00.

Also IF you have a refrigerator other than white like the baskets, pick up a can of spray paint and spray the little baskets to match or in complimentary colors to decorate.

Does anyone know where I can find the pencil holders? I've looked in Target and online.

Two extra tips about this idea. 1) The best jars to keep spices in are those made from brown or dark coloured glass as direct sunlight weakens their potency. You can buy these from Household Goods shops.
2) Measure the base of the base of your racks to ensure that your spice jars fit into them to avoid the expense of purchasing something which is incorrect size for your needs.

THANK YOU! Living in rented accomodation (so unable to drill anything), unable to find a hanging rack that doesn't impinge on anything else and already cramped for space in the cupboards I have been wracking my brain for a solution to this problem. However, you have just provided it! Thank you so, so much - I can't wai to put mine together!

Typically, you can choose something that would fit your budget. And that would really maximize your spice rack space. nice post by the way.
