Blackboard jar labels

Sometimes I think Pinterest is bad for my health as I often pin something I can’t resist making straight away! My latest little craft project might just be one of my quickest turnarounds ever. One day last week I pinned a picture, ordered some craft supplies and yesterday sat down and crafted. Fortunately this was a straight forward task and now the world is my oyster.

I use recycled Bonne Maman jars for storing craft supplies. I just love those jars as they feel and look good quality and hold a surprising amount. I have a line of jars which I wanted to label but not in a permanent way as I often change the contents.

I purchased a couple of sheets of A4 blackboard self adhesive vinyl from a well known auction site, traced a circle around a jar, cut it out, peeled off the backing and placed it onto the glass jar. The blackboard vinyl can be written on with chalk, wiped off and used again. It’s brilliant!
