- Clean mason jars (Kerr brand works best because it has a nice open, smooth spot)
- Chalkboard Paint
- Scrap paper
Place a piece of tape on a smooth spot, making an even line. Leave the top part of the tape up as shown.
Place a piece of scrap paper under that top part of the tape
Continue with the other sides until the inside is a rectangle. Add pieces on the edges as well. Anything exposed will be painted black.
Spray paint with chalkboard paint in a well ventilated area, preferably outside. Let dry completely.
Peel off the tape and scrap paper.
