Must- Try Chalkboard Kitchen Decor Hacks

Condiment Labels

This kitchen chalkboard design is just so cute! Instead of having the conventional-looking condiment jars, you can turn them into a work of art. Simply use a chalkboard spray, spray the whole jar with it, let it dry and you’re done. Then use your colorful liquid chalk markers and label them one by one. Or if you prefer the plain white liquid chalk markers you may use that too.

If you’re not comfortable using a chalkboard spray, you can also use a chalkboard contact paper. Cut it into small pieces or in any desired size that would fit your condiment jar. Wrap your jar with the chalkboard contact paper. Then start scribbling your labels with the liquid chalk markers.

This one is easy to make. Grab some chalkboard vinyl sheets, stick it on a cardboard or a piece of wood, put a string on two of its ends, and voila! You got your own DIY kitchen chalkboard design.
