I can’t focus on our upcoming party! I have all these grand ideas but I keep getting distracted by my house projects. As I mentioned previously our party is a harvest theme. I decided this long weekend would be all about our party. I have been thinking about our menu and, as any good party planner would agree, you have to make sure to label everything! Espically at our party since we have guests with gluten allergies, vegans, and vegetarians, I don’t want any guest guessing if they can eat something without having a reaction!
I started my search for cute harvest themed labels and came up short. I then thought, “Why not make chalkboard labels?” Then they can be used over and over again. Of course as with every project I started making these and then got sidetracked and turned my chalkboard labels into kitchen lables.
I had the plain white canisters already and I was about to get rid of them because I just wasn’t loving them anymore. They were too boring. Adding these cute chalkboard labels have totally transformed these canisters. Read on to see the step by step tutorial.
Step one: Gather Materials- I luckily already had these labels left over from our wedding so I pulled them out of storage. If you are not like me and don’t have labels just laying around, these can be easily found at any craft store. You will also need a sponge brush, and chalkboard paint.
The only step to follow to the letter! – Paint two coats on the labels, paint one coat horizontally and let dry for 30 minutes then paint vertically. That’s it. Its super easy!
Then apply to anything. I will be making more of these for my party. In the meantime my kitchen canisters adore them. If inanimate objects had feelings!
