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. How did you figure out how many cannisters of each type you would need? I am trying to calculate how much it will cost me to copy you :).

  2. LOVE all your organization tips. Do you remember where you got the plastic baskets with the handle? The ones holding your peanut butter etc?

  3. Your pantry looks amazing! One thing I would add is putting expiration dates on the labels for those things that are no longer in their original packaging. While many things get eaten quickly, I do end up with some things that expire. Maybe better visibility of items might help me eliminate that problem! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Great pantry! I have a few those flip-top containers, but they were a bit pricey, so I also got some screw top ones (almost the same body) that contained salsa first. (Bought from Smart & Final.)

  5. I love this! It is great! I can’t wait to get started on it. Thanks this is going to be very useful for me. Just a wonderful idea.

  6. I found you via google search and boy am I glad I did! What a *TERRIFIC* idea! I LOVE how organized your pantry is! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

  7. I love this idea and have been wanting to do something like this with my own pantry. Are all your plastic containers the same size and raised on a platform in the back row or are the ones in back a larger, taller size? My pantry shelves are rather deep and cans and boxes are always getting lost and forgotten in the back!

    1. I’d like to know as well. But love the idea of putting a platform (out of a plain painted 2×4 stacked and painted). This way you can just buy all one size.

  8. I just ordered chalkboard labels and they were a tad expensive. When I saw your idea, I jumped over to Amazon and ordered all three of these. THanks for the great idea!
