Chalk Paint Pantry Jars

By: Alana Shinn from
Chalk Paint Pantry Jars

"These painted chalk labels are a cool way of organizing all those glass jars in the kitchen and are so quick and easy to do, its ridiculous! They make a huge difference in kitchen organization and would make a great gift idea, especially with Christmas just around the corner."

To make this free craft pattern, we recommend the following materials. They can be found for a discount at!

Materials List

  • Glass jars
  • Black Chalk Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Painters tape
  • Scourer


  1. First things first, you need a bunch of jars. Second hand stores are a great place to find cheap ones, but new ones are perfect too. Give the jars a good clean and dry.

  2. Place 4 strips of painters tape on the glass jar to form a rectangle. Inside the tape is where the chalk paint will go, so the tape works as a guide to get straight lines and as a barrier to prevent the paint going anywhere else.

  3. Using the pot scourer, rub over the glass rectangle. This works to scratch up the surface of the glass a little so the in paint will adhere better. Thats the theory anyway.

  4. Give the chalk paint a good shake before opening and then a good stir. Paint the chalk paint in the rectangle. Let it dry, then apply another coat, repeat coats until there is good paint coverage. Then leave to dry for the final time.

  5. Once completely dry, carefully remove the painters tape one strip at a time. This is an easy job if youve used painters tape, which doesnt leave residue.

  6. You may need to use a skewer or something similar to scratch off any paint over run if any. Then the final step is to get the chalk pen out and start labeling and then your all done!!

This idea would be a great project for a person just getting started out in life. Having to buy it all may be overwhelming so I think with my girls that will be graduating in the fall this could be a gift that they can use in their new apartment. It can serve a purpose in the kitchen or any where else storage is needed. It will not break the bank and will be handy no matter what it is used for.

It appears that the sky is the limit to the type of jar that can be used with this project. I have to admit I will not have an issue with jars. This will just be a way to make my pantry items more uniform. Now if I could just find the time to get it done. Thanks for sharing the idea.

These jars are super cute and I can think of a million uses for them. I have never used chalk paint before. Are there any tips for using it? I think these would be really cute grad party centerpieces. You could write the school name and grad year or where the grad is attending college.
