We just finished the wet bar in the family room at ‘Our House’, and I’ve had a lot of fun with the accessories. I already showed you how I installed the shelf with a vintage candy box and soda pop collection above the counter. (if you missed that, click here)
So for on the counter, I wanted just a few cute things, that I didn’t have to spend a bunch of money or time on. When I saw these retro jars at Target the other day, I thought, ‘perfect!’
This is what they looked like before the labels:
Cute, but a little bit boring…
I’ve seen the chalkboard labels, painted on, like at that North Carolina wedding we were at last year, but I didn’t want to invest that much time and energy, and I didn’t have the right paint, and…
So here’s a super quick, easy, cheap semi-temporary faux chalkboard treatment.
First I found this free font: http://www.fontspace.com/category/chalkboard
Then I went on my powerpoint and started messing around,
pretty quickly I came up with this design and adjusted it to fit in the flat front part of the jars.
After printing the labels out on regular old printing paper, I cut them out, and just simply used double sided tape to adhere them onto the jars.
They’re cute, super easy, cheap, and will last for a while. Obviously, if I have to wash the outside of the jars, it’ll be time to print a new label, but that’s simple.
p.s. the candy jar is still empty… my husband is voting for M&M’s but my granddaughters are voting for things like Skittles, or Nerds… we’ll see who wins out. But the problem is, if I fill it with M&M’s, they may get eaten up in one sitting 🙂
