I wanted to organize my pantry but didn’t want to spend a ton of money doing it. I see the trend now a days is the chalkboard labels. They make it easy to label everything and erase it at the same time. I had to come up with a solution to make my own for under $5. I began digging through my house to see what items I had on hand. I found some colorful labels in my craft closet along with some Mason jars that I used for canning a few years ago. I went to the store and bought some chalkboard paint that costs me $4.67 at Walmart. I washed the Mason Jars in the dishwasher and began my project.
First I spray painted the labels with Chalkboard Paint and let them dry.
Then, I cut them out into different shapes by hand with scissors. You could use wavy scissors or your own design.
Before I put them on the jars, I wrote what each jar contained with chalk (or you could use a white crayon if you don’t want it to come off). Stick the label onto each jar and organize your pantry the way you would like it. I put the jars on the top shelve of my pantry and lined them up to look nice. Here is a picture before and after of my pantry.
