DIY / chalkboard jar



  • A glass jar
  • Masking tape
  • Chalkboard paint (better if you use spray paint, it works on every surface)
  • A white chalk


  • Choose a cute glass jar and wash it to make sure the surface is smooth. (I like the square shape of the one I got for half a dollar!)
  • With the masking tape, delimit the area you want to paint. Cover the rest with a plastic bag and tape it to avoid paint mess.
  • For next step, you need a place where you can spray paint or old sheets to cover the floor. (I used an old cardboard box and went outside. Spray paint can make a real mess!) Spray thin coats of paint on the jar and let dry between each coat. You might use 4 or 5 coats, or until it is opaque.
  • Once you are satisfied with the amount of paint, let dry for a whole day.
  • Take the masking tape off gently.
  • Rub a chalk all over the chalkboard area and wipe it off after.
  • Decorate it with ribbons, and take your nicest handwriting !


Enjoy your handcraft time !
