You can find them at craft stores, Walmart or even for $1 at DollarTree!
For this project, I knew that I wanted raised letters so I purchased some Kerrs from Michaels.
I also picked up some Martha Stewart chalkboard paint from Michaels. I got a bottle of green and a bottle of brown and did a little bit of color mixing at home to achieve the shades that I wanted. More on that in a minute.
I made these before I started blogging so I don't have pictures of the process, but it's so easy that you don't need any!
Use a foam brush to apply your first coat of chalkboard paint to the jar. I put my hand inside to hold it upright then carefully set it down to dry for about 30 minutes before applying a second coat.
After the second coat has dried, take some sand paper and scuff up a few spots.
Rub a piece of chalk over the jar as much or as little as you want.
It's that easy! :)
For the green one, I lightened it up by mixing the chalkboard paint with a little bit of plain white wall paint.
I used some espresso paint that I had left over from painting the cabinets and mixed it with the brown chalkboard paint to get a darker brown.
Linking up to these awesome parties!
