3 Ways to Showcase Recipes as Decor

Add a classic touch to your space with these ideas


Foodies and those who love to experiment in the kitchen have at least one or two recipes that they know by heart. Of course, there are days when we still need a guide when it comes to proper measurements and step-by-step procedures. If you love whipping up memorable meals and sprucing up the home, here are three ideas that you would love:

As wall accent

Whether you are working on the kitchen or dining area, you can liven up the walls, cafe-style by using seven of your recipes as wall accent. Prepare a piece of wood or an illustration board that you can display. Paint it with your chosen hue and write on it using colorful markers or paint brushes. Stick your recipes as a final touch. You can also work with clipboards and binder clips so you can easily change the featured recipe.

As tabletop decor

Collect mason jars and clean each thoroughly. Print your favorite recipes and cut it into a size that would fit inside the jar. Once the jars are dry, put the printout inside. Fill it with small, clean pebbles for weight. Once done, your finished projects can be placed on a shelf in the kitchen or as part of your dining area centerpiece.

Display it in a vintage piece

Repurpose old woven baskets or boxes by using it for your recipes. Create a catalog of sorts by arranging recipes alphabetically. This will make it easier for you to find what you need. You can also classify them into: appetizer, main course, and dessert.

RL Tip: Got too many recipes at home? Compile a couple of your favorites and give it to a friend or relative who also loves to cook.
