DIY Anthropologie Chalkboard Spice Jars
February 18, 2013
I’ve been eyeing these cute little white jars at Anthropologie for a while (ok, I’ve actually been eyeing a million things at Antro). After seeing several glass jars sitting in our recycling been the idea to make my own Antro-esque chalkboard jars popped into my head. Anthropologie sells the jars for $10-$12 each and I made mine using only supplies I had on hand.
To make your own chalkboard jars you need spray paint, clean glass jars with lids, and chalkboard labels. I used larger (salsa) jars but baby food jars would be the perfect size if you wanted to use them as spice jars. I already had a ton of spray paint in the garage so this ended up being a zero-budget project! I applied 3 coats to each jar, allowing them to dry completely between coats.
To make the chalkboard labels I used my Silhouette Cameo and some chalkboard adhesive vinyl I had on hand. If you don’t have a cutting machine you can always use chalkboard labels. In a few hours and for little to no money you can make your Anthropologie chalkboard spice jars o start saving all those little glass jars!
