A while back I sent little Clara (from the famous Petersik family) a little gift. I knew that she enjoying cooking as much as I do…so I thought she needed a sweet little salt and pepper shaker to round out her amazing kitchen. Her kitchen is a complete DIY job that her parents did…fabulous…if you haven’t seen it yet…click over to check it out.

So I set out to make these cute little shakers. I wanted them to have different sounds…be cute and tiny like Clara;)…and be durable. I chose to put marbles in the “pepper” and tinier beads in the “salt”. They took no time to whip up…so if you have a special little someone in your life…it would be a really cute little gift:)
