I have SO many plastic containers and glass jars sitting in my craft room just WAITING to be used for a project. I have painted many of the glass jars for various things, but it's always fun to try something new. I came up with an idea in lieu of my sissy's birthday today.
A chalkboard canister!
Since my sissy lives in Columbia, MO I was not going to be able to see her today for her special day due to work. I wanted to send her a fun package of goodies that she could open on her b-day. I always like packing practical things, but also a nice homemade surprise. What better way to pack up some awesome goodies in a plastic container that she can reuse as storage for something else!
Clean out your container REAL good to remove any residue from the contents it previously held.
Using freezer paper, parchment paper, newspaper, etc. and painters tape, tape off your area where you could like to spray your paint and cover the rest with paper.
Using the chalkboard paint, paint the taped off area. Spray 2-3 light coats, letting each dry fully before spraying the next coat on.
The finished product! I ended up making another one so I could keep it for myself and use it as craft room storage.
I filled my sisters canister with a tank top from Target, fun glow stick bracelets and chalk for the front of the container.
This is such a great fun way to ship gifts with a unique presentation!
Happy Birthday SISSY!
Love you and hope you have a great day!
