Best Farmhouse Pantry Labels and Ideas
These are the best farmhouse pantry labels and ideas to makeover your pantry: sticker or vinyl, free printable pantry labels, and more.
There’s almost nothing quite as satisfying as being organized in a home. I love that “ah” feeling when you walk into your kitchen and the counters are clean, the sink is empty, and it smells like fresh lemon. One of my favorite ways to stay clean and organized (and keep my kitchen smelling amazing) is using the homemade lemon cleaner I keep on my kitchen island.
However, it can often be difficult to stay organized. Sometimes, it’s a challenge just to feel inspired to, and yes, I’m gonna say the c-word, clean.
Pantry labels may be small at first, but they can have a huge impact on your organization in your kitchen. Instead of searching for a jar of parsley for five minutes, a label will make it much easier to find and thus saving you an ample amount of time. They’re even helpful outside of the pantry, too, like when you have your hand soap and dish soap in identical containers and forget which one is which.
Whether you’re ready to take on a complete kitchen makeover or are just in need of some inspiration for farmhouse pantry labels, you’ve come to the perfect spot!

How do you label pantry containers?
There are a variety of ways to label your pantry containers and you should choose what best suits your tastes and or needs in your kitchen.
- pre-printed sticker labels
- labels you make yourself with your vinyl cutting machine
- blank labels you add your own titles to
- tie on tags
- clip on reusable chalkboards
All of these can be at least somewhat personalized to your taste by font choice, shape, or color choices.

How do I make my own pantry labels?
Personally, I love to make my own labels! There’s something thrilling about doing things yourself and adding a personal touch to each label. You can go anywhere from simplistic and easy labels to using antique paper to making “fancy” Cricut or Silhouette machine labels. Always remember this is your project and its complexity or time consumption is entirely up to you.
To decide on making your labels, first, you should figure out your level of comfort and expertise. For those who don’t own a cutting machine, you can buy pre-cut labels or cut out your design from a special paper or cardstock. You can also letter your labels by hand, add a simple or fancy border if you’d like. Then affix each by tying or using double-sided tape to your containers, baskets, or jars.
If you have a vinyl cutting machine (or for people like me who don’t like their handwriting), create your design in Canva or Circuit by choosing from each company’s library that features a myriad of designs. Simply import the chosen design, select your font style, add your title (ex: rosemary, cereal, bowtie pasta, etc.), then just affix them with your method of choice.
I recommend chalkboard labels or tags for anyone who finds their organization style is more fluid or tends to swap different items to different containers. Not only does it keep that farmhouse feel, but it also allows for label change after label change with little to no hassle!
What size are pantry labels?
The size of your pantry labels will vary depending on the size of your container. Typically, the size of a spice jar label would not work for a cereal container as it would be too small. Simply put, smaller labels are for smaller jars and containers, and bigger labels are for larger items. Regardless of the size, if you stick to one style, you will achieve uniformity, and it will be more pleasing to the eye. Etsy is a great place to find pantry labels of the same design offered in many sizes, such as this set.
Now, here are several incredibly simple ideas to boost your pantry organizing journey!
