{DIY Wedding Decor} Handmade Chalkboard Paint + Recycled Jars

Just when I think I've seen it all, I happen upon a wonderful blog called A Subtle Revelry by Victoria Hudgins. With the summer wedding season upon, I was thinking we could all use some last minute DIY inspiration like this simple, easy to recreate, and super adorable DIY vase idea. It is perfect project for your next bridal party wedding or event. How CUTE would this be at an afternoon tea or garden party? All you need: jars, chalkboard paint (she has a DIY chalkboard paint recipe...LOVE) and a little patience for drying time! 
Project InstructionsSave a handful of glass product jars and soak in hot water to remove labels easily. Tape off the top and bottom of your paint line and use colored chalkboard paint to fill in between. You can purchase chalkboard paint at your local hardware store or follow Victoria's homemade chalkboard paint tutorial for making it at home. Let your paint dry and remove tape before writing a sweet note of thanks!
I love the look of one stem in each jar, simple, clean sweet, reminds me of summer. Seriously, this is a must do; and if not for a wedding, how about in your home organizing, kitchen cabinets or home office? Where else could you use these cuties? Leave a message below and let us know what you think.
Have a deLicious day. Enjoy the good stuff.
