Chalkboard Spice Jar Labels

I don’t know about you, but I’m always concocting some herb or spice blend that ends up in a little plastic bag in the back of my spice cabinet. It inevitably gets forgotten, and when I do find it eons later, I have no idea what it was, because, of course, I never labeled it.

I found a solution and it works like a dream! Chalkboard spice jar labels!! These handy little jars have organized my homestead spice cabinet perfectly.

Please forgive the photography. These photos were taken almost 4 years ago with a really sad little camera. But they should give you a pretty good idea of the process.

Note: I’m moving this over from my other blog because I think it’s a far better fit on this one. So if you follow me there, you might have already seen this.
