Canning Jar Cups

A couple weeks ago I purchased a box of the half pint Ball canning jars to use to make beverage glasses.  If you make these, be sure to buy the plain canning jars (not the quilted pattern).

Here's what you need:
Half Pint jars
Painters tape
Chalkboard paint
punches to make stencils
sponge brush

Using a circle and flower punch, I made a few stencils out of construction paper and taped them on.  I also made a square on some jars using painters tape.  Then I just painted 3 coats of chalkboard paint.

Once dry, carefully peal the painters tape and stencils off.  That's it, all done!

I used these at a Christmas party to server wine and Sparketini.  Guests just wrote their initials on the chalkboard piece of the glass!  Super cute!

  1. Love this! My sister is planning on doing the same thing with wine glasses for my baby shower, but I think I like the jars better!
