Squishy Top Mason Jar with Chalkboard Labels!!!

So the other day I guest posted this tutorial over at C Squared W, and I decided to share it here too - so those of you that missed it can still get your craft on!

This tutorial is for fun craft storage - the squishy top mason jar with a chalkboard label...


  • Mason Jar (for larger label, get one without writing)
  • Chalkboard paint, paint brush
  • Masking/painter's tape
  • Fabric (about 10 sq. inches)
  • Stuffing (I took apart an old pillow...)
  • Hot glue gun and scissors

(You will need to do about 3 layers... for prepping the paint, read the directions for your particular paint)

You need a large circle about 2 times larger than the pop-out section of your jar's lid
You also need a small circle just smaller than the pop-out section

You need to glue the large piece almost all the way around (see below) and then stuff in the stuffing... then finish gluing.

Then you glue the smaller piece on to finish up...

Stuff the pop-off part back into the jar lid and that part is finished!

Then fill your jar, label it with the contents and be happy with your next project... Clearly I have a few of these... in which I store: glue sticks, "Bitty Bow" pieces, buttons, bobby-pins and feathers.

Hope you all have fun trying this at home! I'd love to see what you come up with!


  1. Thanks for this cute tutorial. I remember my great-grandmother's mason jar collections of buttons, pins, etc. so I'm inspired to make one with a pin cushion top now. ;-)
