I will admit that I may possibly have too many (is that possible?) do-it-yourself chalkboards around our house but I love them! While organizing home office/craft room supplies I realized I was in serious need of labels for my containers.
What you need:
I already had a can of Krylon Chalkboard Paint from previous projects (this stuff is awesome and one can really goes a long ways!) and I picked up a few packages of name-tags at Walmart over the weekend. I chose the 2" by 3" labels as I wanted a large label, and planned on using craft scissors around the edges.
I spread out the labels face-up outside (it was not windy, if there is any wind, try in your garage with the door up, etc...so the labels stay put) and applied two good coats of the Chalkboard Paint allowing to dry well between each coat. I waited 24 hours to let the Chalkboard Paint cure, and broke out my scrap booking scissors, trimming each around the edges. I love how easy they were to make, and I am trying to refrain from putting them on everything around the house.
Wouldn't these make super easy (and budget friendly) wedding centerpieces? I trimmed a few roses from our garden and added the chalkboard label to a clean jar, a little jute twine, and voila! Easy centerpiece or vase on a shoestring!
