Introduction: Blackboard Labels

About: I am a qualified graphic designer specialising in documents. I help passionate business owners by designing all their business and marketing documents so they can focus on what they do best. I bring to the tab…

Turning ordinary jars into jars with blackboard labels.

Items required:
Jars
Blackboard Paint
Paintbrush
Turpentine to clean brush
Dust mask because the blackboard paint is pretty toxic to paint with

Special items:
cardboard
Marker pen

Step 1: The Trick Is the Template

The trick to the uniformity is the template made from a marker pen onto a piece of cardboard.

Now insert that piece of cardboard into every jar when you paint it.

I wanted a slightly messy brushed on look hence I used a template, not some sort of stencil.

    Thanks mikeasaurus.

    Your jars came up nice. I was after a different aesthetic and also the idea of putting all that tape down in the same size rectangle in the same area of the jar for 12 jars seemed like more work than it was worth for me. Kudos to your patience though.
