To make these Chalk Board Label Tea Canisters you need:
1 can chalkboard paint- pretty cheap and this project only uses a small amount, so think of all the other fun things you can make!
1 sheet of sticky labels - you can even reuse old mailing labels you have since you'll just be painting over them.
Tea canisters, old containers, anything that can hold things airtight works fine. Most of mine were purchased at a local thrift store for less than $1 each.
Now all you have to do is
1. Shake up the can of paint and paint right on the labels. Make sure you have something underneath that can get dirty. Make a thin layer that covers the labels enough that you can't see any white but try not to make it too thick.
2. Let the paint dry (I wasn't sure how long) but I let it dry for 24 hours just to be safe.
3. Peel the labels as you normally would, either writing the tea type on the label before or after with regular chalk and place on the containers!
Some of the tutorials I saw that helped me come up with the idea are below:

Hope you all liked this tutorial, like I said it was fun, easy and has made my tea making experience even more enjoyable!
