Back before Christmas, I replaced the canisters on my kitchen counter with these glass canisters. My canisters had gotten some hairline cracks in them and were allowing moisture to get in so my sugar was getting hard as a rock and my flour wasn’t keeping fresh.
The glass jars are these Anchor Hocking Heritage Hill Glass Cookie/Candy Jars which you can get from Amazon or I found mine at Walmart and got to use a gift card I had stashed away.
I love them! The large ones will fit an entire bag of sugar or flour and I love that you are able to see the contents and see when you are getting low. But I knew as soon as I got them that I wanted to dress them up a bit.
That is where these adhesive chalkboard labels come in! I got a $10 off a $10 purchase coupon in the mail from Staples (maybe for my birthday? Not sure why I got it?) and I had seen some other bloggers post about the fabulous Martha Stewart/Avery line of products that they carried. These were $5.99 and I got another larger chalkboard label pack too so only paid $2 for both of them. (This is not a sponsored post… Martha Stewart/Avery and Staples have no idea who I am, I just happened to love these products!)
And here they are on my glass canisters with each jar labeled with the contents!
The labels are really cute with a little scrolly design on the edges.
I know chalkboard stuff is all the rage right now and I am happy to join in. It just dresses these up, makes my counter seem really organized and fun, they are completely removable, and of course I can change the label to say whatever I want.
And now I want to chalkboard label everything! They also had some tag type labels that you could tie on baskets – loved those too. Now I just need to find those wonderful chalk pens everyone keeps talking about – I can’t find them anywhere here?
Are you in on the chalkboard phase? What could you use these labels on in your home?
