Today I grabbed some sugar on of my bin, saw the chalkboard sticker on it and *light bulb* got to work on making new labels for my spice jars.
First off, they needed to be cleaned. I don't want to think too hard about why they get so much gunk on them sitting out on the counter, so I skipped that thought process and just wipe them down! I cleaned the base too. I just used water, a rag and some elbow grease.
Yup that's it, three items! Probably many of you have them already in your craft bins, I did. Don't you love that?! Extra easy: if you don't have the chalkboard vinyl and punch, you can buy chalkboard labels at a lot of retailers.
Step 1: Punch out your vinyl. You could also cut it with scissors or use a cutting machine like a Silhouette Cameo (which I LOVE).
Step 2: Use your chalk pen to write you spice name on the label. (If this is your first time using a chalk pen, read the directions and test it out before starting; they take a little getting use to.)
Step 3: Peel off the back of the sticker/vinyl and place on your jar.
Note: You can switch step 2 and 3 if you'd like. A few of mine did get smeared when I applied them (this is likely because I didn't wait for them to dry...I'm not good at waiting).
Ta-da! You're done. Easy peasy and it looks so nice, like a new spice rack! Any time I can re-style something to keep it out of the landfill and save myself some money I get excited.
