Chalkboard Paint Jars

In my Snack Organizing project, I talked about how storing our snacks where they’re organized and in one place saves us time and money.  I used glass jars- 2 large and 2 small for this project to create my own home snack store.

Here’s a quick tutorial.

Chalkboard Paint Jars Tutorial


  1. Glass Jars with lids-  (found at Target or here on our online store)
  2. Masking Painter’s Tape
  3. Chalkboard Paint- (found at Michael’s)


Step 1:  Use tape to mask off jar leaving a rectangular opening in the middle.  To prevent paint from seeping through the tape, create several overlapping layers.

To take the pressure off creating the perfect rectangle, I tore the inside side of the tape to create a “jagged” look.

2.  Spray opening with chalkboard paint.  You can do more than one coat, as desired for best results.
