blackboard mason jars

For my daughters beach wedding, we have a theme of mason jars and chalkboard paint. So I had the idea to combine them as a wedding give away.

The idea was for guests to be able to write their names on their glasses to keep track of their drink. They would also be able to take it home.

I mixed up some chalkboard paint. I used 1 cup of flat latex paint with 2 tablespoons of unsanded grout. I mixed them in an old chinese take out container.

I cut the cloud shaped labels out of vinyl using my Brother Scan N Cut. It was standard shape that came with the machine. I then painted them with the chalkboard paint, giving each label two coats of paint.

After they dried, I attached them to the glass and then baked them in the oven at 350 for 45 minutes. After they cooled down, I put them in the dishwasher to make sure they were dishwasher safe. It worked like a charm, and our guests had a cool token of the wedding day.
