As I mentioned in my last post I had two of my lovely bridesmaids Shaye and Hannah come over and help me with a couple wedding related projects. I thought rather than going through tons of glasses for the wedding I would make it possible for everyone to reuse a single glass throughout the night. This meant I had to come up with a way that everyone could easily label a glass, so we painted chalkboard strips on each of the glasses.

Things you will need
- mason jars
- masking tape/painters tape
- paint brush
- chalkboard paint
- chalk pens
First you will want to lay down some newspaper on your work surface so you don't have to worry about dripping the paint. Next tape off the shape you want to paint. We created rectangles.
We ended up putting three coats on each jar to get it thick enough. Once finished painting you will want to let them sit for the next 24 hours before you try to write on it. I also highly recommend using chalk pens instead of a piece of chalk, as it won't smudge (as easily) and you name can look pretty all night long.
