DIY Chalkboard Labels

Happy Friday my friends! I’ve been busy getting our house organized all week. Isn’t funny how the beginning of a new year motivates you to clean and organize? Why don’t I get this motivation any other time of the year so that my house could actually stay in order? Anyhow today I want to show you my new DIY Chalkboard Labels. If you checked out my 15 Organizing Ideas you’ll see that I found this idea on Lil Blue Boo. I made mine a little different using my Cricut but if you don’t have a cutting machine she provides a free template download for you to use.

To make your own chalkboard labels you’ll need contact paper and chalkboard paint. I used Martha Stewart’s blue chalkboard paint left over from my blue chalkboard.

Disregard the cricut cartridge in the picture, I ended up using the Cupcake Wrappers/Toppers cartridge. My labels were 4 inches big.

Once I cut the labels out I used a glue stick to hold them in place on a sheet of paper. Then gave them a couple coats of paint. Letting each coat dry in between coats.

Then you take the contact paper off the backing and apply it wherever you’d like. I’m seriously obsessed with making these. They’re going to be plastered everywhere in our house.

I’m using them to organize my boring craft storage containers. Don’t they look cute?

Thanks for stopping by. I’ll be back tomorrow with a winter wreath project and next week is my big bathroom reveal ::squeal:: Have a great weekend!
Linking up to these parties, tcb, and craft envy.
