Here at Wallums we have some fabulous chalkboard vinyl that we use for many of our fun kids room and nursery themed designs. But we realized that there can be many uses for this material, such as labels for jars and other items!
Since I’ll be hosting a Bridal Shower this coming weekend, I thought it would be a great idea to try out these labels for the mason jars and big drink container I recently found at our town’s local Antique Fair.
To get started, I used our larger size labels, a set of Crayola Drawing Chalk and a white Chalk Ink Marker.
This marker is easy to use, just shake well, press down on the tip to get the ink started, and it’s ready to go!
Mason jars are incredibly in style for weddings, parties, and to store household items. Using our chalk ink marker, these jars are clearly labeled to distinguish the different kitchen pantry items. Although these jars had some design on them, the label still adhered over the indents without trouble. Just be sure that the edgers are completely pressed down so no moisture gets underneath.
Worried people will get their glasses mixed up at your party? We have a solution to that problem! Have your guests write their names or a message on their glass to tell them apart, whether its a mason jar or wine glass.
These labels can go onto just about anything! You saw how well it worked on glass, and here it is stuck onto my antique porcelain container that can be used for serving water, iced tea, or yummy Sangria!
This label was written on with the drawing chalk, and just like writing on a regular old chalkboard, I found it best to trace over the words once or twice to thicken the font. You don’t have worry about creating indents on the vinyl either, as I applied plenty of pressure with the chalk multiple times.
Have fun with your labels! Change up the font style and draw little designs on it to show off your creativity!
Whether indoors or outdoors, these labels are visible in any setting!
And when you’re ready to clean it off, simply use a damp towel, sponge, or napkin and rub!
These labels are much more durable than I gave them credit for at first. Not only can you remove them multiple times and reapply them if it comes out crooked, but they can get wet and will still hold to the item! I wouldn’t put them through the dish washer, but I was able to hand wash it and dry off without any trouble. The label comes out looking new again without a trace of the chalk or chalk marker!
Needless to say, I am super stoked about these labels and have my head spinning with ideas of where to place them next!
