DIY Chalkboard Paint and Washi Tape Vases Craft Project

Two big crafting trends right now are chalkboard paint and Washi tape. So I figured, why not combine the two? Here are some fabulous handmade washi tape and chalkboard paint vases I created over the weekend from a Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino bottle and a Ch√Ęteau Morrisette wine bottle. Not only do they look great, but they are a fun way to upcycle empty glass bottles!

Chalkboard Paint Covered Wine Bottles

To create your own DIY washi tape and chalkboard paint bottles, you’ll first need to select your bottles. Ideally, they will be empty. Rinse them out so there is no residue left in the bottles indicative of their previous contents. Then spray paint the bottles top to bottom with chalkboard paint. I used Krylon Chalkboard Aerosol Spray Paint for this project.

Once the paint dried completely, I then wrapped Washi tape around my bottles. You can use one pattern of Washi tape or several that compliment one another. It’s all up to you!

Next, you can write a message or name or a create a drawing on your chalkboard paint vase. These messages or drawings can be erased and a new message applied as often as you like. Therefore, this upcycled wine bottle vase is perfect for entertaining or as a wedding table centerpiece.

Now all that’s left is to add water and flowers to your vases! Create a simple arrangement with just one or two flowers or jazz it up with multiple flowers, then display.

DIY Magnetic Tin

Yesterday I went a little crazy making things with some rare earth magnets. While I had them out I decided to make a tin to hold my chalk for writing on my chalkboard cabinet doors.
My Chimes Ginger Chews tins were the perfect size for holding my chalk and I love the tins just the way they are. However, if you want to use this idea, feel free to decoupage the tins first with some of your favorite scrapbook papers or fabric. All I did was glue two rare earth magnets onto the back of the tin with some E6000 and let dry.
Then I filled the tin with chalk and stuck it to the fridge! Now the chalk is in easy reach for both the family and guests when they come over without having to dig through drawers.
Need other things close at hand in the kitchen? Use tins to hold pens, pencils and short scissors as well! What small items or utensils do you like to keep at hand in the kitchen that would fit into a magnetic tin on the fridge?
