How To Make A DIY Magnetic Mason Jar Chalkboard

Make an adorable DIY Magnetic Mason Jar Chalkboard by updating a dollar store sign. It can be used as a grocery store list, or for a menu planner.

Hello! Michelle from Our Crafty Mom back today with an adorable magnetic mason jar chalkboard craft that’s made from a dollar store fall sign.

We all know how popular mason jars are, and this little sign is perfect for a kitchen. I have to tell you this lasted all of one day in my home before my daughter stopped by and dropped a hint about how cute it would look in her kitchen.

Like any mom would do, I promptly took it off the refrigerator and gave it to her. Because it’s so easy to make, I can whip up another one in no time!

There are so many ways you can decorate with this chalkboard. You could add chalkboard art with a stencil or transfer. A seasonal quote would be really sweet on this sign. You could also add a few floral stems or leaves to the raffia.

It’s totally a matter of preference and what you like for your home. You can also make a chalkboard out of an old picture frame if that’s more your style.
