Chalkboard Prints, Labels and even Chalkboards in general are really popular right now, and rightfully so. There are endless projects that you can create with Chalkboard Paint.
One of our goals for this year is to create systems for our home and business. And one of those systems is to have things organized. Using these Chalkboard Labels on the spices are one of our first projects we have tackled.
For this project, we are using the Chalkboard Labels on small Mason Jars filled with Spices. But we have also used them on Love Buckets for Valentine’s Day and Preserving Fresh Herbs. Creating the Chalkboard Labels is easy and fun!
Let me show you how to make your own Chalkboard Labels…
Chalkboard Labels Supplies
- Labels – you can either buy pre-cut labels or a solid sheet, for this project we used Avery 2.5 inch Round Labels, they fit perfectly on the Regular Mouth Ball Lids
- Chalkboard Paint – there are a few different brands available, you can find it near the spray paint at Walmart
- Chalk Paint Pen – you can also use a regular paint pen if you don’t plan to erase and re-use the label, or regular chalk as well
- Place labels on covered work surface, and spray with chalkboard paint – be sure you take it outside, just like with any spray paint
- You will need 3-4 coats, letting it dry in between each coat
- Then let the sheet dry overnight
- Peel off the label and attach it to the lid – if you are not using the labels for jars, at this point, depending on what you are labeling, you may want to write on the label before applying it to your project
- And if you are using a solid sheet of labels, you can use a craft punch to cut out the size of label you want
- Write on the label – for this project, I used a regular fine tip paint pen, 1) I don’t plan on re-using the labels, 2) since the label is small, I wanted the lettering to be fine and 3) chalkboard pens are $10-$12, this pen was only $3.50.
- Let dry a few minutes
- Add lid and ring to the jar
