We had a cookie table at our wedding reception and I wanted to create some easy chalkboard labels for the bags guests could take home with them. Of course these guys wound up being hidden behind a crate on our desert table so no one saw them anyway, woops. Most of the cookies got eaten and those that didn’t Eric and I enjoyed after the wedding :)

I needed about 50 labels and since I am cheap was on a budget I decided I could save some money by making my own chalkboard labels. It was super easy too!

Here is what you will need to create DIY Chalkboard Labels:

  • Chalkboard Spray Paint
  • Labels
  • Tape

I bought the labels at target and think they were like $2.99 for a 24 pack. Not too shabby. The chalkboard spray paint I had on hand from some DIY Chalkboards I had made. It was October when I was doing this project and pretty windy outside, so I taped the labels to the top of a box so they wouldn’t blow away when I used the spray paint.

I used 2 coats of spray paint on the labels, letting them dry in between coats.

Afterwards, we stuck them to the brown paper bags and my sister wrote K+E with a chalkboard marker. That’s it! Easy, huh?

It’s snowing here in Atlanta so I decided to take advantage of it and take a photo of one of the leftover bags outside, haha. The snow is so white and pretty! Yet I am definitely ready for spring…
