 Organize with DIY Chalkboard Tags - Marty's Musings

Using chalkboard as a decorative element in home decor has been the rage for a while. 

I am a total joiner with this trend and have incorporated it into several design elements in our home.

My DIY hubby threatened to quit making my “honey do” projects  if I didn’t stop.

So I found a way to do them the inexpensive and easy way!

I love to organize and I’m on a kick to make my life easier and organize with DIY chalkboard tags.

Have you seen my craft room makeover? I totally went wild with chalkboard labels!

For the labels on all my craft storage I started with this cool Chalkboard cardstock by DCWV and my trusty Cricut diecutting machine.

I used the Accent Essentials cartridge, setting #48 at 3″ in size. You can tell I cut nine frames out of one sheet of 12×12 paper.

 I was only interested in the inner cut of the frame for my labels.

 After I finished cutting I used my Xyron sticker machine to add a sticker to the back of each label.

Then came the fun part! I used a white chalkboard marker and labeled my plastic file folder boxes for my scrapbook paper.

I labeled the plastic tubs that hold many of my crafts. (The baskets use the second technique below.)

 You can see my craft closet and all the cardboard boxes I labeled. The most brilliant idea? The boxes all came with the metal tag on the outside so I just turned them around and labeled the other side!

 I used several dollar store containers and labeled those as well.

The second technique is one I used in our small bathroom remodel.

I had all these wooden tags that someone gave me years ago (no, I’m not a hoarder! I just figured one day I could use them for something and I was right!)

Someone must have sold countertops because these are like the samples you get at your local home improvement store.

 Krylon makes a terrific chalkboard spray paint and these tags got a couple of coats.

The hole at the top is perfect for coral ribbon to match my bathroom.

 I love the look of these dollar store baskets with the chalkboard tags and ribbon.

So what do you think? Do you have any areas that need sprucing up with some chalkboard labels? They are inexpensive and totally rockin’!

I also used the wooden chalkboard tags to create a rustic fall tablescape (complete with the best pumpkin muffin recipe.)

One of my first projects was this kitchen message board I made from chalkboard paint and an old medicine cabinet mirror.

I used glass chalkboard paint to create a fun and reusable Mother’s Day plate.

I even used mini chalkboards in this pint mason jar gift with a cookie mix inside.
