You think it should be easy to label mason jars, right? Over the years, I tried everything to label mason jars. I found Whiteboard markers that worked but would rub off if you held the jar a certain way and dragged your finger across it. I tried labels that would just fall off when I would lay them over the raised parts of the jars. And, since there are many raised lettering on the mason jars, I couldn't find a smooth place to add the label. The only place that was smooth was the top lid of the jars which couldn't be used because I wouldn't be able to see the labels when they were in my pantry. Oh boy, what an annoyance! But, there was a solution.
Recently, I found a product that works well for labeling mason jars in my pantry. I also used a liquid chalkboard marker because it dries when you use it. If you need to wash the jar, it will remove but can easily be reapplied later.
Make your own labels for mason jars
This is it! It's a new product from Chalkboard Tape from Scotch (TM). It comes in a roll and I was able to do all the above jars with ONE (1) roll. And, I still have some left over. You would need a chalkboard marker as well for this project.
Cut your tape the length of the circumference of your mason jar. Some mason jars are larger than others so measuring with this tape around the jar BEFORE cutting is best.
Because there is probably raised writing on your mason jar, I recommend writing the label on a flat surface before affixing it on the jar. It was harder to write neatly when the label was affixed first.
What do you think? Here is the finished product look. I love that the jar said perfection at the bottom. It is perfection when it is this easy to setup and organize. Do you agree?
Here are all my mason jars in my pantry. Tip: I even used the labeling on the smaller mason jars. If you want a uniform look line up the jars, use a roller and mark a line on all the mason jars with the dry erase marker. After you are done affixing the labels you can wipe off the line on the mason jar with a paper towel.
I hope this helps you get your mason jars label and your pantry organized. Please share other areas that these labels can be used. I would love to hear from you.
