DIY Crafts: Make Chalkboard Price Tags with Mason Jar Lids

Searching for eco-friendly price tags for your crafty business? Make DIY crafts like chalkboard price tags with mason jar lids.

You guys know I love two things: craft booth ideas and chalkboard paint projects. This project beautifully combines my two loves! While I use my recycled paper price tags at my booth, I wanted to create several chalkboard price tags for our band merchandise table. (Shameless plug: I sing background vocals for Crystal Padilla Music.) Even still, these cuties would be perfect for a craft or fair booth, or really any event that needs adorable chalkboard labels!

What You Will Need:

1. Mason jar lids

2. Chalkboard paint

3. Low VOC spray paint

4. Hot glue/hot glue gun

5. Chalk

6. Sand paper

How To Do It:

1. Lightly sand the mason jar lid with your sand paper. This will help the paint adhere to the kid.

2. Spray paint the ring of your mason jar lid. Remember, multiple light coats will give you the best results.

3. Chalkboard paint the inner portion of your mason jar lid. Most chalkboard paints require that you wait 24 hours for the paint to cure before writing on the chalkboard, so make sure you follow the directions on your specific chalkboard paint.

4. In order for the paint to cure correctly, cover the entire chalkboard surface with your chalk. Erase it, and then your surface is ready to go!

5. Hot glue the chalk paint portion to the ring of the lid.

Wasn’t that super easy? You can punch a hole in the lid to hang your tag on items, add a magnet to it like I did the mini magnet chalkboards I created at Feelgood Style, or you can simply place it on the table. I’ve also thought about propping the lids up with an easel. I love the pop of color and the texture of the ring, too!

What do you think? Where would you use these adorable price tags or labels?

    Did you find that the paint peeled off the lids easily?

      It really didn’t. It’s not something that you’d want to encourage people to pick at, since you can’t seal it, but chalkboard paint does hold up well to regular use.
