It’s been very cold and very wet here in Northern California. Lately, we’ve had an invasion of sorts.Ants. Everywhere. I don’t think they much like the weather so they’re looking for a warm place to stay. This sugar bowl is one of my favorite items in my kitchen. My husband and I bought it in Siena on a trip to Italy ten years ago. Unfortunately, the ants like it too.
I needed a temporary ant-proof sugar bowl until we can get these little buggers under control.
I found this inexpensive air-tight and ant-tight storage container at Wal-Mart. It’s a Flip-Tite container from Better Homes and Gardens. Using my newly acquired Silhouette Cutting Tool, I stenciled on a simple design.
In a nod to my Italian sugar bowl, I also stenciled the Italian word for sugar. I couldn’t forget Spanish and French as well. But the best part is the air-tight, ant-tight lid!
Have you had any uninvited invaders this winter?
