I loved this idea of recycled craft jars from the Playful Learning Blog.
To recreate this idea, first paint the lids to match with a low voc wall paint (or any leftover paint from previous projects). Then use masking tape to mark off your rectangle on the jar. You will then apply 2-3 coats of chalkboard paint, allowing it to dry 5 minutes between each coat. While the last coat is drying, remove the masking tape. You can use a razor blade to clean up your edges, if desired. Then you can write on your labels.
Would love to hear any craft ideas you have with reusable items in your home!!
