7/31 | DecoArt Organization Jars

Hello! It’s Sophie here with another DIY project using the DecoArt Glass Chalkboard Paint. I’ve always been a big fan of all chalkboard paints, and DecoArt’s is my favorite by far. Since I’m currently designing my sewing and crafting area/office, I decided to label some mason jars.
Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Jars
  • DecoArt Glass Chalkboard Paint
  • 3D Frosted Glass Enamel (Optional)
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Cotton Balls
  • Painters Tape
  • Paper Plate
  • Makeup Sponge

Step 1. Clean jar with rubbing alcohol and cotton balls. Then use painters tape to section off the shape you want to paint with the chalkboard paint. I decided to just go with rectangles for the tutorial.


Step 2. Put a small amount of chalkboard paint onto the paper plate and dab first coat onto jar. Let dry completely.


Step 3. Apply second coat and smooth out as much as possible. Peel tape off after about 10-15 minutes. Let dry for recommended length on back of paint jar. After the recommended drying period, condition the chalkboard area by rubbing chalk on the surface, and you’re all set!


Here’s what the finished product looks like…

When you peel the painters tape off, be careful to keep the edges as neat as possible. In case the edges do get a little messy, use a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol to clean them up. It really works as you can see below!

Keep designing,
