DIY Chalkboard Sticker Labels

Are you getting annoyed with my chalkboard obsession yet?

I know the hubs is….that and my new love for white spray paint ; )

But seriously….isn't it awesome?!

 I have been wanting to get some chalkboard sticker labels {like these} for a while now, but I didn't want to pay for them.


So….

I have this HUGE roll of contact paper and a bucket of chalkboard paint…so I made my own!



Here's how I did it:

I drew the shape I wanted onto a note card and cut it out.


I then traced the card onto a strip of contact paper with a pencil.



 I then cut it out.



Covered the contact paper with a few coats of chalk board paint. It took at least 2 coats because the paint doesn't stick perfectly to the contact paper.


Let it dry…


Peel and stick!








There ya have it…
my very own removable chalkboard stickers for less than a penny!

Love em!

That is such a cool idea. I'm wondering if you can wash the jar and sticker or if you need to replace the sticker each time? I am gonna get me some of that stuff.

I am here from the Friday blog hop. I came to subscribe to all of your stuff and saw these ingenious labels. How cleaver you are!

This is the best part of blogging. I have like ZERO talent for things like this. I just sit down for a few hours at a time and pin other people's awesome ideas!

Thanks for this!
