**So happy to have you here!  Make sure to follow us on Pinterest and Facebook to stay up to date on our posts!**

UPDATE!  Many of you have requested the brand of air tight canisters I use.  Here is a link to them on Amazon!  They also qualify for free shipping… Whoop!  I use all 3 sizes!

Hey hey guys!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

I really appreciate all of your shares and pins on my printable banner letters!  I will be sharing even more later on this week!

Today I am sharing a quick tutorial on how I made my labels for my pantry makeover.  These are so simple, and now I am fighting the urge to make labels for the entire house ;-)!

I have 2 types of chalkboard labels.  The labels I am sharing today turned out like this…

These are super simple!  It’s all about finding the supplies.  I found everything on Amazon… I sort of LOVE Amazon.

I knew I wanted to have the look of a chalkboard, so I decided to use Chalkboard Contact Paper.  Here is the paper I bought from Amazon…

I wanted them to have a cute shape so I found this paper punch on Amazon as well… (You can also find this at a craft store and use a coupon if you prefer!)

Now the key is the ‘chalk’!  With 5 kiddos, chalk isn’t used much around here.  As soon as I write something cute, I have little fingers that like to wipe it all off.  So… I was so excited to find this wet-erase chalk pen!  Not only were my words much easier to write, the kids can’t mess them up near as easily!  Woohoo!  To erase it, you just get a damp paper towel or cloth and it wipes right off… LOVE.

That’s all you need to label pretty much your entire life.  I did all the labels you see in the picture, and didn’t use hardly any of the paper roll.

Here is the punch…

I made a whole bunch just by pushing it down… So easy!

I used my pen to label them…

Then, I just peeled the back off and stuck them on all of my containers!  Easy peasy!

How cute are those?? And I love that I have all the supplies handy to make more whenever I need them!

Hope you like them as much as I do!

I would love for you to share and pin this post below!

Let me know if you have any questions at all and have a great week!

  1. I am also very interested on where you got the canned good storage containers. I have been looking for them and can only find the wire ones. If you made them, could you share the pattern?

    1. ⭐⭐⭐The one I built is a nicer design than this one. I LOVE MINE!!! I built my own using the plans at www. WoodworkPlans.info – highly recommended you check those out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha

  2. Hello! I would love a punch like the one you used, did you find it on amazon? Was it called bracket? What brand? I have been looking for one like this online and I’ve had some trouble finding it..

  3. Your chalkboard labels are ingenious–I am totally going to take advantage of your cleverness! And your pantry is so amazing! I would be in there all day long, gazing lovingly at the beauty and organization. *Sigh*

    1. The containers are all air tight, and with a family of 7 our food doesn’t sit on the shelf too long 😉 Not sure if this is what you are referring to, but hope it helps!

  4. this is fab!! i have a little obsession with chalkboards so i love this….i have used black paper and a white pen but i love your idea with the paper that peels and sticks and a chalkboard pen (which i have from another project). ps..your pantry is beautiful too :0)

      1. I am in the process of organizing my pantry. Using your pantry as inspiration. Thank you so much for sharing. I love it. I’m looking for your ur container info, I purchased a couple dozen of the Snapware airtight container and I already own the stackable bins in your pantry that I bought from The Container Store years ago but I’m wondering where you got the cerebral containers with handles? Also, where you got the bins with handles? My first ever reject, can’t wait to share finished project on Facebook.

        1. I do apologize, I found the bins with handles at The Container Store just after posting this. Still can’t find cereal container with handle.

  5. Great idea, do you think that paper would work in the Silhouette? Also where did you get those baskets with the handles? Love it!!!
